Having set up a machine for my daughter- I copied the entire drive from the old machine to the nmew and proceeed to transfers stuff appropriately All went well. Got on line OK. Could surf OK However when she logged onto her Webmail account the well remembered password was rejected. The question then is where do passwords reside on a drive so that it/they can be located.?
That's exactly WHY you use a different email addy!! It's dead easy to set up a Hotmail or gmx or gmail account for just such eventualities. Maybe not the first thing on your mind when you set up your email, but now.......?
