This new work place I am at gave me a computer with Windows XP. Since the old guy forgot to give them the password before he left, I could only use the Guest account on my first day. I saved my 5 hours of intense work in a huge zip file and uploaded it to bitshare.com for downloading from home. Some stupid mess up on bitshare's side says the file does not exist any more! Here are my questions: 1. In Windows XP, are all Guest account's files deleted when the Guest logs off? Or does this happen when the Guest (or Admin) logs in again? One webpage page hints that the data actually is deleted only when the Guest logs in again and can be recovered by logging in as an admin. 2. Going through Safe Mode let me log in using an account named "Administrator" without any password on a few XP computers earlier. Is this option available on all computers? If there can be a password for it, how can I reset it so that I can back up my data or use recovery tools? 3. Are there any alternate methods other than those mentioned above or using live CDs to recover my data? Folks here seem very knowledgeable and I hope to get a solution for my problem before I go to work on Monday.
