Hi,

My windows\system32\config\system file is corrupt and I'm trying to save important files and folders before I try to repair it. I have Norton Password Manager which now stores about 200 passwords for me. I need to know the exact name and location of this file on my PC--so I can save it on a disc using my Norton Recovery Disc. Then, if I ultimately lose my files, I have this one saved. Can you help me?

Thanks for your attempt--and be well & happy,
Barrie

This program, to back up the profile where the passwords are stored, requires you to export them from within the program. In your case this isn't possible so the next best thing is to clone the entire drive.

Hi Neil,

But when you export something--isn't that something a file with a name? That's the file I'm looking for--the one that is exported. I just want to copy and past it, tho, instead of export it. I don't know the folder it is in as well.

Thanks for your help.

Be well & happy,
Barrie
