    This is a long shot!
    My purse was stolen, inside was a Western Digital External Drive (gifted to me, not registered for warranty).
    It contained thousands of pictures of family, documents and sorry to say, income tax returns of 4 individuals.
    NOT ENCRYPTED...(bashing head against the wall).

    Unfortunately, even though I did a police report (a city in Ontario), I have to do the leg work in locating all my belongings. The total of the theft is under $500 so the police are not 'investigating'. I have travelled to a few places where they might have re-sold the unit, but if I do locate it, I need to have proof that it was mine.

    My question: Am I able to somehow locate the serial number by going through the WD utility manager on a PC that I frequently used this drive?
