Windows Vista Home Basic: Forgot Account Password

Jordan W 1 Reputation point


I've recently found my old laptop which has Windows Vista Home Basic on it. Despite the password hint, I cannot remember what the password is.

I would like to keep all the files, photos and folders etc. from the laptop and access it. Is there anyway I can bypass the password at all so I can get to my files?

I don't want to reset my laptop and lose all the files - they are extremely important.

    You can download a Windows 7 PE and boot to it, then copy your files using command like copy,xcopy etc.
