ok here goes. I took the 120gig HD out of my pc and put into an external enclosure to take with me on a trip with my laptop for a year. I get back home, put the 120gig back into the desktop and boot up, goes to xp password page, and I am totally stumped... now I usually only use 1 password and that dosent work, I tried a million variations and nothing will let me into it... now I can get to all the data if I put it back in the external enclosure and open it through the laptop and it never asks me for a password. thats probably why I forgot the password because ive been using it without one for a year. is there anywhere I can look in the windows folder while booting it through my laptop to see what the password is, or change it manually whilst booting from another OS? anyone know an app that can crack it? I can always copy the data onto my laptop and reinstall xp on the 120gig HD, but I only have a 30 gig in the lappy which would make me lose alot of data. burn it all onto cds? heh this sucks.
