Passwords are a tricky event in many forums as one never knows for sure if the poster is for real and so on... Consequently many forum members are reluctant to provide direct help...

However there are utilities "out there" that may allow... Perhaps a google trawl is in order...


are typical responses; from which you will see that the only recourse a reformat which means you lose al files. Then possibly run a file recovery process as in the links above? Although I'm not sure it will work - if the files are encrypted... If they're not you may be able to get some of them back?

This is possibly required reading if you have to reformat...
