Question:Is there a problem with leaving the drive in Lock-Override mode?
Potentially. In the lock-override mode, the drive will stay unlocked until either the USB port power is interrupted or the device’s lock button is physically pressed. To protect the contents of the device, use this mode with an abundance of caution, especially when plugged into a powered hub. If the drive is left unlocked and unattended while inserted into a powered hub, it is possible to move the hub's host side USB cable to another computer without interrupting USB power to the unlocked device. It is always a good practice to lock the drive or remove it from the USB port whenever unattended.
