USB Password Reset Disk

« Home 18 aug, 2018. updated: ---

USB Password Reset Disk: For logging into Windows, we are working to create the most secure passwords, protecting the privacy of unauthorized users. The problem is that more complex passwords are easily forgotten, so we exclude ourselves if we forget the password, which can even reinstall the system by deleting all the data that is on the system partition


The Microsoft team from Redmond, which operates in Washington, constituent state of the U.S., also thought of this case when creating a disk password reset option that is part of Windows 10 and for use was made available for free

Note: If you forgot your password during login, it is not possible to create a recovery disc later, so create one as soon as possible, start right now if possible. It takes only a few minutes, even if the description seems to be long. When logging in to Windows, just connect the flash drive to your computer and you can easily create another login password at any time

What you will need

  1. - Flash drive (pendrive). Attantion! Save all data on your device because it needs to be formatted

1. First Step: Insert the flash drive into the free USB port on your computer. Then, click This PC (MyComputer) on the desktop to open the Devices and Drives window. Click the flash drive with the right mouse button, and from the mouse menu that appears, select Format

A warning window appears. After all the data has been saved from the drive, click OK. The program is formatted on an NTFS file system

  2. Or select with mouse, and then copy and paste it into the Run window by right-clicking on the previously selected code, and in the pop-up menu, choose Copy, in the Run window right-click and choose Paste from the mouse menu
  3. Finally, hit Enter or click OK on the Run window

In the first published window, click the Next button after reading the informative text

Automatically detects the drive. If does not find a connected device, sends a warning message. If there is more than one, select from the appropriate drop-down menu by clicking on the small arrow down. Finally, click Next

In the new window, you will need to enter the current password that will be used when you sign in

Start the closing process. The current password is stored in the flash drive. Place it in a safe place, so that no one else can access only the owner

The password recovery disk is now ready. Click Finish

Attantion! Do not remove (pull) the USB flash drive as it will cause data loss. Next to the clock, click the up arrow on the taskbar, right-click the flash drive icon, and then click Eject. More detailed here: Error Pendrive (flashdrive) » »

Site history

The site was released in 2007. After Windows'98, the first descriptions were made for XP, however, due to the cessation of Microsoft's support for XP (Experience), Windows7 and Vista descriptions have been deleted. At the end of October 2014, tips for Windows 10 have been added, but with the spread of smart phones and tablets, it has become important to transform the site into a "friendly mobile receptive". This was in the early months of 2017, as of April 2018, the new descriptions appear on the Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP), corresponding to a new standard designed by Google to accelerate the AMP HTML content known as "purified code"

Caution: Descriptions may contain errors, use at your own risk
