    I have a laptop from customer who has forgotten the password and needs important photos extracted from it before i wipe it clean for a reinstall , thing is she cant remember the password her daughter used on it and she doesnt speak to her daughter anymore so asking for password is a no go... is there a way to get in or reset password?

    I cant use my Knoppix discs to extract photos because the laptop has a dual hard-drive setup in RAID and both my knoppix discs wont load saying "cant find file system" so im assuming its the RAID setup confusing it.

    any help would be great :)
