I purchased my windows Vista about a year ago. The recovery is automatically saved in a D drive. I had a major power surge and lost everything. The password was saved in my documents (I know Stupid) and I cannot get my computer to recover. Is there a way to reset my password or another way to access my recovery? Or do I need to pay the 50 dollars to microsoft and explain it 5 times to the techs they have on the phone?
Any help would be appreciated.

you might try recovery software (which is round of 50-70$ as well, but you could search for cheaper or free one) before.

You mean that the recovery is password-protected?

What is the problem with the machine? We can't help you with passwords, but we may be able to help with the underlying problem.

If you have an XP machine available, you could also make a bootable UBCD4Win CD to access your documents. Ubuntu, Knoppix, or any other Linux distro with NTFS drivers can also access those files.

I really appreciate the feedback. My thirteen year old kid was right...
stop being cheap and take care of it. Looks like he was right. Again, thank you both for the help.
