How to unlock bitlocker encryption on a external hard drive

You might not ever get it back as the whole point of encryption is security. Having said that, try to remember , was anyone present when you made the password? Do they remember anything, Could you have made it with cap lock on my mistake? You wrote it down somewhere else? Can you remember? You changed it and told a friend on the phone? Did you use a different computer to set this up?
I tell all my clients Go to the dollar store buy an address book with the split pages abc ,def, etc mark it my computer passwords and use it just for that. Best $1.00-$3.00 you'll ever spend. Good luck Bob

Netflix comactivate code

netflix usually will ask u to log in if u have an account, and it sounds like your son in law got u set to go. Do u remember him asking you about what you wanted your password to be? you would have a user name, probably he used your first name. so, go to the netflix site or app, look in the top left or right corner and you should see where it says login, tap on that. when it asks for your password, see if you remember any password you might have used, or, just tell them you forgot your password or username, then , they will ask u to type in your email, and they will send u a message instructing u how to change these things, it is really quite simple and u will be watching videos in about 5 minutes or so. make sure to write them down so u dont forget them. or just sign up again.

Assuming you have already tried leaving the password blank:

Turn the PC off.
Turn the PC on - start tapping F8 repeatedly.
Select safe mode and sign on as Administrator
Go to Control Panel/Users
Remove the password from the affected account.

Vista ultimate

Try holding the shift key and then right click the file you want to delete and then choose run as administrator. This will help you elevate the user rights(if you are not the admin for the computer it will ask you for its password.).

Nothing for Vista for Free. Sorry. I've always wondered why people use passwords, and why they forget them . If you need a password, you need to remember it, I think.
There are plenty of sites where you can find the information you need, but this probly isn't one of them.
Good luck
