You'll need to mount the drive you're trying to work on. Click on it in the left sidebar of the file manager.

Btw, tell your friend that if it's a Microsoft account, you have to go online to reset the password. Good luck.

Thanks for the heads up But, I believe it's already mounted  because when I clicked on it as per your advice towards the bottom it says unmount.

open
open in new window
open in new tab
add bookmark
unmount
properties

He has two accounts Microsoft and a local. And as you can see microsoft is of no help, all they keep telling him is info on how to change your password to recover your account (which isn't working) also he should be able to access the local account with the microsoft account which also isn't working. Thanks for helping

Well I just tried that version on my Win10 drive and it was able to read the hive.

I'm suspecting you're in the wrong directory when you run it

Have you mounted the Windows partition in Peppermint, and then changed directory to the
/Windows/System32/config/
directory under where you mounted Windows ?

ok, here is one issue we are experiencing,

peppermint@peppermint ~ $  cd /media
peppermint@peppermint /media $  ls
cdrom  peppermint
peppermint@peppermint /media $

It's not giving the info(string of  numbers) so we can get to SAM

If I need to post something let me know and thanks for the help.

Installation / Re: Failed too mount (Live USB)
« Last post by pepperOS on Today at 03:17:08 am »
i had some bootup problems with an elitebook 2530p.
used a usb cardreader with an SD card, and used a DVD with a peppermint iso burnt to it but they would not boot.
what worked for me was putting the SD card straight in the SD card slot of the laptop and then made a bootable peppermint device with it.
(bios had a choice to boot up from SD card and activated that)

strange thing was that several distros like linux light, ore puppy linux had no problem with the usb card reader routing.

o, before i forget, if you get in the screen of peppermint with the bootmenu, have patience.
when used the enter key it took a while before it started

When my disk lost it's partitions, neither Acronis TrueImage
nor Macrium would backup this disk in any shape or form, both stating that "the disk was empty"

What I meant was to use something like the 'dd' command to do a block by block clone .. where it's not so much copying 'data' and 'partitions' as much as making a 1:1 copy of the state of all blocks (so the clone will exactly mirror the original block device, including errors and bad blocks).

Anyway, glad to hear testdisk did the job for you :)



Images in posts...

The images can stay :)  .. the reason we discourage the use of screenshots is only to stop people posting screenshots of terminal output .. as you can imagine, usually when a helper requests terminal output it'd save them a LOT of time/effort if they can copy/paste the output (or parts of it) into say a text file or a web browser so search tools can be utilised to find the important parts .. not something that can be done with text in an image.

It also means the text in the image can't be indexed by this forum software .. so again isn't searchable by future users looking for a solution to a similar problem.

This doesn't really apply to your testdisk images .. so I'm happy for them to stay :)

Well The problem is solved, Testdisk (using deeper search) did find the missing partitions.
They should be verified on the found summary screen by making sure they can display their files and ensuring
that the partition types are correct - then write it.  I will now make sure to keep copy of the fixed MBR's and put them
somewhere safe

Thanks all - do you still want me to remove these images?

PCNetSpec I fully understand your hesitation about giving advice in something critical like this.  Everybody is different in their PC tech comfort levels.
When this first happened almost a week ago, I couldn't even remember what programs I should be looking at.
I took my time and gradually felt more comfortable in what I was doing. When my disk lost it's partitions, neither Acronis TrueImage
nor Macrium would backup this disk in any shape or form, both stating that "the disk was empty"
