  • User accounts missing , using loginrecovery

    As I have no floppy drive I burned a CD, according with instructions of loginrecovery.
    I put it in the PC I want to recover login, but the only accounts I get are:

    Administrator 500
    Guest 501
    HelpAssistant 1000
    Support 1002
    Aspnet 1004

    The User account I need to recover password does not appear.


    I get no error messages. I get the information that all accounts are retrieved and I can switch off, but I know user accounts are missing...
    Can you help why this can happen?

    Why dont you recover the administrator password, log in as the administrator and then take a look in computer management and see if the account is there and then reset it

      Furthermore, is the computer a part of a domain? Could it be that the "missing" users are in fact domain users?

        Danielp thanks for helping. Really the user accounts missing are domain accounts ( only now I reallized that). Do you know if I can get them with loginrecovery or another tool?
        I can also have the SAM and SYSTem files, if it is preferable.

        Thanks

          If they are domain users then why not just logon as Domain Admin and reset their passwords?

            Because PC (laptop) is no more in use with the domain sever (company was closed).

            I do not know the mechanism, but user domain account ID and password should be available somewhere in the PC, since it is the one used for logon when Laptop is in standalone mode.

            Thanks
