Anyway to access files on a PC without knowing.

. the Windows password!

Yes.

1) ntpasswd cd, and remove the password
2) any other linux live cd and just ignore windows entirely
3) slave the drive in another machine and ignore windows entirely

(note that's three different ways of doing, not three steps instructions.)

Oh yeah, also ophcrack and recover the password (if it's not too complex)

geek_little_egypt, Feb 26, 8:43 am

what if the drive is encrypted .

What's the easiest way to recover the password!

If the Computer has failed then remove the Harddrive pick up a $5 external case and plug it in to another PC, download Kapersky and use Kapersky to backup all your old Harddrive Data!

If you have forgotten your password, just start it up in safemode and access your files from there or remove passwords from profiles.

How do i do this!

! Where can you get a 3.5" external case for $5! and why would you advise to download Kaspersky (Pure) to do a backup!

Which version of Windows!

Plenty of $1 reserves on TM and have bought a few 2.5 and 3.5's on DX for under $10.

Kapersky removal tool is an easy alternative to cloning an entire HD have used it many times to remove data from bad sectored and dying HD's
