ENTIRE ERASE 320 SERIE "SECURITY FREEZE LOCK"

hello impossible to remove "Security Freeze Lock" despite consulting all post on this forum. my ssd 320 is new. I can not remove the empty partition 8MB and I am unable to delete the live system containing WIN7 64. I would use again my 120 GB hard drive and make it like new. Thank you for helping me. Excuse my English, I'm French.

Hopefully...

Removing power to the drive and then restoring it will reset the ATA drive lock bit and allow access...

But, Intel is sort of making up rules out of the sky there and disregarding rules for these situations that have been in place since five years back by the ATA standards...

In general, try unplugging the drive's power and then plugging it back in an pray that this odd lock will be removed and allow you to do what you wish.

But... These Intel drives have a lot of firmware issues too... I guess 'hope they will replace it' under warranty is considered as a "solution"..
