Welcome to the forum. This password is intended to make the system unusable by others if it is lost or stolen. It is the responsibility of the legal owner of the system to remember this password or at least to have proof of legal ownership like a sales receipt.

Welcome to the Community

 

{EDIT: Simulposted with @hausman , so I deleted the redundant information]

 

In the future, having good backup habits will save you a lot of grief. As a computer guru once told me, "Data that doesn't exist in at least three places... doesn't exist." To that end, I have boxes of backup hard drives, thumb drives and - yes - even floppy discs. I have a cloud account and that's mirrored on my NAS. I sleep well knowing if any device should fail, I've only lost that device, not its data.
