Pointsec Lockout want to retrieve files

By yaterbob ·
Helping a friend with a problem of unrecognized password on a think pad w/XP with Pointsec 5.2.0 AES 2005 installed. Would like to recover the daughters school work prior to formatting the drive but the password no longer works. And we have no network access anymore from the company Laptop was originally purchased through.

I as a member of TechRepublic I do not participate in defeating security measures. I hoped for a venue to legally access the Computer after identification and proof of right to access. I no longer can utilize the company Network to reset the password. After all most computers are just personal notebooks and not a repository of state secrets. I will of course as a last resort use the recommendation of another TR member to boot in DOS and remove the partitions and repartition and format the drive.
