If any one knows how to reset this network drive back to its factory defaults I would appreciate the info. I forgot the administrative password (don't ask!) and now need back into it. Thank you.

Sorry for the delayed response. Here is an excerpt from the user manual.

Load Setup Defaults


In the following cases, load default (initial) settings:

You forgot the IP address of the PX?EH.

The information (password, etc.) of the Administrator was lost.
How to Initialize the PX?EH


The PX?EH can be initialized using the following two methods.
(Click here for the list of default settings.)

Method 1
Revert only the network settings to the defaults


You can perform this initialization by pressing the RESET switch.
(Refer to Method 1.)

The following items will be initialized:
IP address
Administrator password

* Saved data will be retained.

Method 2
Revert all settings of the PX?EH to the defaults


You can perform this initialization by clicking Detail Setup, and then clicking Load Setup Defaults. (Refer to "Reference on the Setup Screen").
The following items will be initialized:
All equipment settings (network settings, Administrator password, user group settings, etc.)
If this initialization is performed when the PX?EH is set to the default settings, the internal hard disk will be formatted.

* Saved data will also be deleted.


I hope that helps.

Can you send me the owner manual?

Also, can you send me step by step instruction of how to reset the administrator password without losing any data?

I don't know where to get a copy of the manual, but for resetting the password without losing data, I've copied the section which describes how to do this.

Great... Thanks..... So what is the default user name and password?
Administrator and what?

Do I connect the PX-EH40L directly to computer first in order to configure this device back on the network after pressing the reset button?

Then I use the default user name and password?
