Create a Password Reset Disk and Use it to Reset a Forgotten

Create a Password Reset Disk and Use it to Reset a Forgotten
Password in Windows 7

Creating a password reset disk is a good way to protect yourself against forgetting your password.
It allows you to easily reset your password without having to use third-party boot environment CDs and tools.
Microsoft suggests that you create a password reset disk shortly after creating the user account and
assigning the password. That way, you know your current password with which you can create the password
reset disk. You only need to create a password reset disk for your Windows XP logon password once. You
can change your logon password as many times as you want and you can still use the same password reset
disk to reset your password if you forget it.

Creation of password reset disk requires a USB flash drive or a floppy disk.
We recommend using a USB flash drive, as floppy disks may not be as reliable. The Forgotten Password
Wizard creates a file called userkey.psw that is only 2KB in size. Therefore, you only need a low-capacity
USB flash drive to store the file.

NOTE: Be sure you store the USB flash drive you use as a password reset disk in a secure place, as anyone
can use it to reset your password to one of theirs and access your Windows 7 account.
