Reset Windows Password:
Backup passwords and sensitive information
Sometimes it is vital to make a copy of Windows registry or an Active Directory database. Reset Windows Password is a lifesaver for those who need to back up the files easily. It can even make a snapshot of all sensitive data of the target PC in just a couple of clicks.
First, we need to set up what to backup:
- Windows registry files
- Active Directory database
- All sensitive information including user/system registry, passwords, certificates, etc.
Selecting what to backup
You will have to set a source drive where the target Windows directory resides and a target path. The target path will be used to save the output archive. By default, the program suggests first hard drive as the source and first removable drive as the target.
Setting up additional options
Next step is a bit simpler. In case you selected Registry/Active Directory backup on the previous step, all you need here is to confirm Windows/AD folders. Otherwise, you'll additionally have to select either profiles directory or profile directory for selected user, depending on options you choose.
Backing up requested files and passwords
And the final dialog is just a progress for the backup operation. Click << Back up files >> button to start the process. By successful completion you should get a *.ZIP archive which holds all requested files.
Later you can use these files to analyze secret data in any 3d-party software. For example, in Windows Password Recovery
