Why does my private partition on the Imation Defender device remain unlocked?

 

The private partition of the Imation Defender F100, F150, F200, H100 and H200 will remain unlocked if the Defender device is connected to the powered hub. Since the powered hub never removes power on the USB bus, the device never resets even if you shutdown the computer. If the Imation Defender device is connected to the PC then the private partition will remain unlocked if your system goes into stand by mode or is restarted. To lock the partition, follow the instructions for safely disconnecting your Defender device from the USB port.
