I need to copy the system sam file in order to retrieve my admin pw. I do not want to reset it because I used the same pw for many other things and need to remember it. I still have admin access on another account.

So far I've only found one possible option googling:

- download a small version of another OS and copy the file to a disk.

I do not have a floppy drive and my OS is windows xp home. Is there anyway way I can get hold of this file?
