Hi, yesterday my USB-Key stoped working, and I don't have any backup. How will I solve this problem?

I have a backup of the key file. I have figure out that I need to get to the systems command promt to change the drive letter on the USB with DISKPART.

Or do u have any other solution?

Here is what i did, I want to undo it without having to reinstall Windows.

I can see some solutions for this privlem, but i dont know how to execuite them.

Here are different solutions:
1. Change the driveletter on the new USB flash drive to A: using the registry

2. Reinstall Windows (I want to avoid this option)

3. Get into the system without a key (the most difficult option)

3.

I guess my question is this. If you felt a need for this extra security then why aren't you willing to get another flash drive? They are really cheap these days.
