Incorrect PIN entry

After 5 attempts

The drive will freeze, requiring the drive to be disconnected and reconnected to the USB port to get a further five PIN entry attempts.

Next 5 attempts

If the following five (10 in total) consecutive PIN attempts are entered incorrectly again, the diskAshur DT2 will freeze again. To get a further and final five PIN attempts (15 in total), the “shift” button must be pressed whilst inserting the USB cable to the USB port and then an iStorage preset PIN will need to be entered.

Last 5 attempts

On the fifteenth consecutive incorrect PIN entry, the diskAshur DT2 assumes it is being attacked and will delete the encryption key and lock itself, rendering all data previously stored on the drive as lost forever. At this point the drive can be reset to factory default settings and redeployed.
