On April 15th a desperate friend asked for my help with his Vista PC due to
what I thought was a password issue. I tried and failed so he filed a tax
extension. He could not logon to his PC and all of his tax informartion is
on the PC. Of course there is no backup. The PC is not a domain member.
He is not able to get access to his User account files. I created a new
account on the system and was not sucessfull in my effort to access hi user
files. I tried Orphcrack but that did not provide the account password. He
does not have a backup and he must get to his tax files ASAP. What
suggestions do you have on how to backup his user files to a USB memory stick
so we can format, reinstall, and put his user files back onto the PC?
