    Have a Vista 32 Premium Home Edition and on the advice of "Goddess", I need to make a password

    recovery disk, as I just changed the Administrators Password. I see some sites online, but they say something about a USB Flashdrive, and I don't think I have this?!?

    Also, I trust more the people on this site who give advice, info and instructions.

    I do have a DVD/CD burner.

    Any help appreciated!

    Thanks for the help, it's the only one I got. I went to that site and it says I need a USB Flashdrive or a Floppy. I only have the CD/DVD burner. Do I have to have one of these to make the Recovery Disk? If I have to buy a flashdrive thingy, is that expensive? (I'm assuming that's the one I'd have to buy) Is one better than the other?

    Thanks WAW8!

    :D

    Given that it allows the option of a floppy disk, which is well under 1MB in size, any USB stick should do the job. I've seen multi-Gig flash drives for under $10.
