To securely erase and unlock a SanDisk drive, follow these steps:

  1. Backup Data: Ensure you have a backup of important data from the drive as the process will erase all data.
  2. Format Drive: Connect the drive, open Disk Management (Windows) or Disk Utility (Mac), delete existing partitions, and format the drive.
  3. Encryption: If the drive was encrypted, use the encryption software to unlock it using your password or key before erasing.
