Reseting password after I installed windows in a hury deleted all my data- can it be recover?
I just installed a fresh windows on my PC after my HDD started to break down slowly. I bought an SSD and fresh installed it. I entered my password for my account and it locked me for 30 mins, and as I was in a hury I didn't wanted to wait for the cooldown, so I went straight to reset it, (because I had like 2 tries to find my password back) and I needed the account sync RIGHT NOW. I had no idea if I resetted my password, it would delete all I had on that account. Is there any way to get my log-ins back? They are really important as I had some stuff that I don't use often and I needed them there. Or is anything that I can do at least to recover my passwords? PLEASE HELP
Resetting the sync password, or changing its e-mail will remove all data from the servers. The username and password are used to create the encryption.
