    Saved passwords from external HD


    Older PC crashed. Able to see data by using HDD hooked up externally.
    Can see all the data.
    Customer is senior cit. with Hotmail and forgot password.
    Went through all the usual with no luck.
    Got to sending Microsoft request with name, emails, subject, etc.
    MS sent back letter not enough info.
    Any way to get into where IE has the saved passwords stored?

    They would be encrypted if they were saved. All passwords are saved in the Credential Manager.

    Can I access the files in the IE 11 Credentials Manager somehow in the C: drive while the HD is accessed externally?
    All the saved passwords are stored in the Auto Complete.

    They are encrypted. All passwords are supposed to be in Credential Manager if saved. There is no way to decrypt that we can discuss on here.
