A family member of mine had an accident not long ago, and as a result has memory loss. The issue is she has a personal laptop (for work and personal use) that has both user accounts (Administrator/User) password locked and she can't remember what they are.


She has files and information on there that she doesn't want to lose.


I have a few methods in mind, however there risks with them. Maybe I'm missing something easier.


Reinstalling at this point is not an option.

Unfortunately we can't share information on how to circumvent software protection on this site.


I simple google search like "recover lost password windows" will yield a treasure trove of results though.
