How to reset password in Lenovo's Rescue and Recovery?

2011-11-19, 11:00 AM

Hi all!

 

Here's my problem. Recently I have discovered that I have forgot my password for Lenovo's Rescue and Recovery. I've supposed that when I select "Protect your backups with a password" option, I could change my password for every new backup, whenever I remember my old password or not, but it seems not. So now I couldn't restore my previous backup and couldn't make a new one. Is there any option to reset the password?

 

Thanks and sorry for my English

Solved. Just uninstall the software, reboot and install it again. Now I can make secured backup again.

I mean, that I don't care about previously made backups, cause I forgot the password for them, I just care for new made one. So, after I've reinstalled R&R and entered new password I could make a new backup and restore from it.
