View Full Version : Lost Password.

08-18-2004, 04:11 PM

I have managed to lose a password to an account on my computer which was not part of the Administrator's Group. It's really important that I recover the password to this account. I do have access to my main user account, which is part of the Administrator Group.

Any suggestions? Help would be greatly appreciated.

Boot from the OS X Install CD. You can reset passwords there using a utility in the menus...

OSX (rightly so) makes it pretty darned hard to "recover" passwords.
