This is probably in the wrong place, but I couldn't exactly think of where else to put it, so here goes nothing. I used to be the proud owner of an HP dv6, until my motherboard burned out. Now I am the proud owner of an Asus UX305FA. The dv6 had a fingerprint scanner, and before the crash I was configuring it to configure some of my passwords. One of the passwords I did manage to set up with the fingerprint scanner was the password for my Imation Secure+ flash drive. So, now I don't remember the password for the flashdrive. It is on the old computer, saved in the fingerprint scanning software. Is there any way I could access it without replacint the motherboard to the old computer?


Alternatively, is there any way to reset the password attempt count? If I try it on another computer, will the password attempts reset? Or is there a way to get the password out of the imation .exe? Something??


Like the title says, this is a challenge, but any assistance would be greatly, greatly appreciated.

I have a dv6 sitting in my cupboard working.


I think you can take the HDD out and plug it into some other computer and retrieve the passwords from there?
