Default password

Do I need to set up a default password for each machine I transfer files to my sandisk? I was just trying to transfer a directory from a machine that is not my default machine, and the password prompt kept popping up. Very inconvenient. The message also stated that I can set up a default password from some console. But I could not figure out where that console is. Could you provide more detailed information about how the encryption application works, and how I can create a default password that works with all the machines I connect to? I seem to transfer files from my default machine to the ssd drive just fine.

Re: Default password

The ssd does not have any password capabilities. It uses hardware encryption but this is done at the controller level and it done transparently to the host. What kind of password application are you using?
