These steps (a little bit more detailed) :
1. Download the 'unofficial' service pack (SP42) and use the manual firmware upgrade process through the web interface: http://www.noerenberg.de/hajo/pub/sg2000-2000.1337
Note : Before updating you have first to rename the file to match the major model number of your NAS (sg1000-1000.1337.sp42.img for the 1xx series, sg4000-4000.1337.sp42.img for the 4xx series). (rename the file to correspond your NAS !)
2. ssh root@ with password 'atsahs' or open PuTTY and put the IP, then accept the key, then username:root and password:atsahs Make sure to change the root password as soon as possible!
Note : To connect in SSH I use Secure Shell Client (no more available for download but here you should find alternatives : http://kb.iu.edu/data/ahjh.html ) profile is as follows:
host: 192.x.y.z (according to your network)
password will be required and it will be atsahs
Note : Finally when connected in SSH you can use the following commmand to change the password : passwd

This is not a modified 1291 firmware, it contains only the part of the firmware which allows to reset the ssh password to something known, it doesn' t really update the firmware which will remain 1291 (or whatever was before).
I have been using with 3 different firmware of nas 110 and it has always been working (It does work with 1291).
see explanation below :
1. Enable SSH on the Seagate Blackarmor 220 NAS - the easy way 1. Download my 'unofficial' service pack (SP42) and use the manual firmware upgrade process through the web interface: http://www.noerenberg.de/hajo/pub/sg2000-2000.1337
.sp42.img (do NOT rename the file!) --> this part was for NAS 220, for NAS 110 you shall rename it This image (service pack) does not contain any device-/model-specific files (e.g. no kernel) and may work on other Seagate Blackarmor models as well (not tested -- please let me know). Update: You have to rename the file to match the major model number of your NAS (sg1000-1000.1337.sp42.img for the 1xx series, sg4000-4000.1337.sp42.img for the 4xx series). Update: This SP works on the BA440 (reported by Mike) Update: This SP works on the BA110 (reported by Tudeskie) 2. ssh root@<NAS-IP> with password 'atsahs' Make sure to change the root password as soon as possible!

No I am still XP (company laptop)
Now what is interesting is that I killed the power to the NAS by accident today. Got the usual email from Seagate GA to inform me of the abnormal shutdown.
So a while ago I tried to delete a few of the .tb folders and yes they went.
Did a search for all the .tb folders and found nearly a 1000 and was able to delete them all.
Not sure why the power outage should produce this result but it's happy me now.
The NAS has been shutdown and rebooted a few times from the web interface after the fw update so can only assume it needed a hardware 'jolt'
