I've been trying to log in to my Seagate BlackArmor NAS in order to manage my settings but I cannot seem to do so. I seem to have lost the proper login credentials or no longer know what they actually are.
I am able to log into the NAS via the BlackArmor Discovery application (I apparently have the proper login information for this...) But I can't seem to actually go in and view the drives that have been setup with passwords or even the main settings page itself.
Do the credentials I have that allow me to log in and view the drives via the Discovery application allow me the ability to override the credentials for the individual drives? Is there any way I can recover these credentials? If not, is there a way to reset the drive without wiping or losing my information/data stored on it currently?

Your Seagate NAS 110 User Guide is chock-full of information you should read it one day.
If you don't have it handy you can download it from here
On Page #10 the guide states the following:
"A Reset button (on the bottom of the server) that lets you reset your BlackArmor NAS 110
server user name and password to their factory default settings."
Page #31 States:
"Administrator password—The server’s default login information is:
user name: admin
You are prompted to change the administrator password during the initial server setup. If
you didn’t, or want to change it again, open BlackArmor Manager (see page 19). You can
change the administrator password by selecting Admin Password from the System
menu. For step-by-step instructions for updating the password, refer to the BlackArmor
Manager online Help.
You may need to use the default user name and password again in the future, if the server
is ever reset to its initial configuration."
And Finally Page #44 tells you how to do it:
"Resetting Your BlackArmor NAS 110 Server
Follow these steps to reset the BlackArmor server’s name, DHCP setting (network mode)
and log in password.
You will need a paperclip or other narrow device to perform this task.
1. Carefully access the bottom of the server.
2. Ensure that the server is powered on and connected to the LAN.
3. On the bottom of the server, find a single small opening. The reset button is inside the
4. Insert the end of the paperclip into the opening, then press and hold the reset button.
release the button yet.
5. Hold the reset button until the disk drive LED on the front of the server lights up, then
turns amber (yellow). This takes several seconds.
6. Release the reset button.
The server reboots itself. Once the server has restarted and the LAN and disk drive LEDs are
lit up, the reset is complete. The server is renamed to “BA-
MAC address”, where
is the last six characters of the server’s MAC address."

Before anyone jumps all over me on this, YES I HAVE RTFM. The NAS is locked up, giving me the standard error when attempting to manage it and yes, I have reset it. I just have ONE QUESTION that is not answered ANYWHERE, what happens to the passwords for any of the USER shares on the device when you so a "reset". I can get to the public data to back it up but the shares for each user appear to have different passwords now. Thanks.
