    Virtual Disk Service error when creating WinPE Rescue Media


    I have a suggestion. You advise restoring from a Macrium Image from within Macrium Rescue Media rather than from within Windows itself (that is, not with the normal desktop showing). It seems to me that would have to be be done without access to your tut (which is online). I have therefore printed it out on paper and filed it away. I suggest you might like to consider putting a note about that at the end of Part 5 of your tut.

    It is really very helpful to have well illustrated step-by-step tuts like this. Thanks for all your efforts.

    My Rescue Media

    Can I use my Win 10 Rescue media (flash drive) to locate my admin password
    that I must have created when I set up Windows 10 the last time? I have lost that password and I'm told that Microsoft cannot help with my Win 10 Admin password.

    I tried to do a "Restore" but it keeps failing and I keep getting an error message. Then somewhere on line I learned that I should boot up in the "Safe Mode" to try the "Restore Function" but as I am going through the process of of opening in the Safe Mode,
    I am asked for my Admin Password. I lost every record of that in a mishap. Today, I ran across a thumb-drive with my WIN 10 Rescue Info on it. If I reboot with the Rescue media, will I be able to locate my password or find the reason for my problem of not
    being able to Restore to another earlier date.
