Will my pictures and files be saved if I format my computer?

by on July 11, 2012

Q: Will my laptop save my pics & notes ( from my notes under tools) if I have to reformat my comp. because I can’t remember my password to sighn in? I can’t use the password reset feature because I never set it up & didn’t realize you have to do that first,
I’m slowly learning about computers!
Also could you please let me know if I have any other options that do not cost $ (I’m temp. Laid off) and what does exactly get erased?

    reformatting your computer will delete everything on your computer.

    What version of Windows are you running on your laptop? I might be able to suggest a tool to help you unlock the windows password.


      Windows 7.

        You’ll want to use the LiveCD download and burn the image to a CD. If you’ve never burned a disk image to a CD/DVD consider having someone assist you.
