10.7: Reset Password
Authored by: godinvictor on Aug 13, '11 01:18:31PM

So's I'm still hanging onto Tiger, which I still love. It still does some things that throw me.
So yesterday I went to create a new account for a friend and the bugger created a new acccount password for me. Has done this twice in the past.
needless to say Tiger has once again locked me out.
Big problem is the optical drive has taken a beating and I can't use her to reset my password via
Hence I'm wondering if anyone can tell me how to get back to my things.
PS: I Have the Administrator account. Can still get in . But all of my files are locked out. Can I get at my user account without my optical drive? Say MP3? I have the disks. Can I make Control C work for that drive? Please let me know. FML!
