Need to retrieve file - forgot user name/password

Postby teriboyle76 on Wed Apr 03, 2013 10:43 am

I am trying to figure out how to retrieve a file on my system but I forgot the user name and password. If I boot the linux mint OS from my DVD, will it be able
to retrieve my file on my computer?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.
