Forgot Administrator Password for WHS2011 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello.....

    I have a Windows Home Server 2011 running in my home.  The System has been up and running for many years.  While I don't have any problem with the WHS2011 Server currently,  I use a Remote Desktop Connection to periodically connect to the Server to run updates etc.  The RDC Connection has the administrator password stored, so I don't need it when logging in.

    The Problem that I'm having, is this is the only way I can access my WHS2011 Server and my Windows 10 System is in need of a refresh and if I can't recover the Administrator password to my WHS2011 Server, then I'm going to be forced to reinstall that system as well (something I really don't want to do as I've got over 60TB of data stored on it).

    Can someone please tell me how I can recover the Administrator password from either my RDC Connection, or the Server itself?

    Thank You,
