    Windows 10 Account Password Trouble...


    Hello,

    After the most recent W10 update I have an account/password problem with my SyncBack Free software. To work unattended while I sleep it needs my Windows password for authorisation. That goes ok. But whenever I want to CHANGE one of the Syncback jobs, it asks for my Windows password again (Syncback in itself does not require a password, only for unattended jobs - and a modified job is seen as a new job).
    If I fill in my CORRECT Windows password it will NOT work again: wrong password, it says. Even when after numerous attempts I CHANGED my Windows password correctly.
    I thought it was a SYNCBACK issue. But now I think Windows10 is to blame.
    Today after trying to get SYNCBACK doing its jobs, there SUDDENLY was a Microsoft windows popup saying they had to fix an issue with one of my accounts (I only have one). I agreed, they said they would fix it - and confirmed that.
    But the issue with SYNCBACK is still existing.

    Does anyone recognize or understand that problem? And can help?
    Thanks!
    Wim

    Windows 10 Pro 64 bit

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    As you may already know, Windows 10 (as well as Windows 8) allow you to log in with a valid Microsoft account, instead of creating a local account that only works on your machine. However, you may prefer to keep a local account for privacy reasons. If you do, though, some Windows 10 features—like Cortana—may not work. Despite the default behavior, the Windows 10 Store is not one of them. You can still log in to your Microsoft account for just the Store without switching to a full Microsoft account. The process, however, is not terribly obvious. To do so, follow these steps:

    • Launch the Store from your Start menu.
    • Click the user icon next to the search box.
    • Click “Sign-in” from the menu that appears.
    • Choose “Microsoft account” and log in like normal.
    • When the “Make it yours” box appears do not enter your password. Instead, click “Sign in to just this app instead.”

    How to reset Windwos 8 Password?

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/what-do-forget-windows-password#1TC=windows-8

    • If you've forgotten your Windows password, there are several ways to retrieve or reset it:
      • If your PC is on a domain, your system administrator must reset your password.
      • If you're using a Microsoft account, you can reset your password online. ...
      • If you're using a local account, use your password hint as a reminder.

    Windows 10 Account Password Trouble...

    Strange Windows 10 User Account issue.

    Unfortunately I had done those steps numerous reboots, it just, reappears for no good reason. The base account isn't even a Microsoft account, it's a local account.

    I haven't quite tried the built in administrator account on W10, but so far in my experience on my own computer, the built in account seemed to have absolutely no more control than I did on my own.

    It's just strange, I go in, it warns me twice about deleting the account, then it's gone. Reboot, and it's back?

    EDIT: Just to specify, both command line and Netplwiz both say only HIS account exists on the computer, it doesn't list this rogue account. This is what I meant in my first post about the fact that even Windows doesn't seem to believe it exists, HALF the time. *Frown Windows 10 Account Password Trouble... :(
