  1. Can't login to original account, possible loss of data ?


    Hello, I wanted to change the username folder of my account and was following this tutorial: How to Change the User Profile Folder Name in Windows 11 makeuseof.comBeing the naive person I am, I skipped the initial steps and didn't read them and ended up changing the ProfileImagePath in regedit to the desired username folder name that I wanted. In hindsight, this was a really bad idea not to follow the tutorial correctly, but what's done is done.After changing the ProfileImagePath, I restarted my computer and tried to login to my account, I was met with a screen that said "We can't log in to

  2. Locked Out of Admin Account

    Hello Linda,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    1. Are you using a Microsoft account or a local account?
    2. Which version of Windows 10 you are using currently?
    3. Is the other user account an admin account?


    I suggest you to try using the on screen keyboard at the login page and check if you are able to login to the PC.



    1. At the login screen click on the
      ease of access icon at the bottom right hand corner.
    2. Click on the on screen keyboard to open it.
    3. Type the password and try to login.

    If you are using a Microsoft account, I suggest you to refer the article on

    how to reset your Microsoft account password
    .



    However, if you are using a local account, then I suggest you to refer the article on

    reset your Windows 10 local account password
    .



    Note: While performing these steps, there might be a risk of data loss. You may take a backup of the data before performing the steps.



    Hope it helps.

    DATA LOSS

    No one can help you if you won't tell us what data was lost, where it was originally stored, and
    what steps you've taken so far to find it. Otherwise, you're hoping for a lucky guess.

    Do you normally backup your data?

    how to convert Dynamic disk to Basic disk without data loss ?

    Hi,

    The process of conversion is quite tricky but not exactly that complicated. Suggested safe is to have your data cloned and work on the clone instead of the original. This suggestions and steps were provided by one of the Microsoft Community Forum MVP's,
    John John__ in his response on this thread. Follow the steps carefully
    to be able to avoid data loss.
