My wife is a crossword junkie. She's suggesting "tabby". I also found this as the species: Pardofelis marmorata

If you google the phrase you'll see tons of options - maybe some will resonate with you?

Good luck!

a cat statue in marble? Cats were household gods - and were frequently mummified too.

Bast and Mau were my first guesses.

List of Egyptian Feline Deities - by Arijana

Here's a whole list. Just a thought tho.... was she a fan of the TV show Stargate?
If so, Anubis would be high on the list.

Do you still have the w7 installation disc, it is possible to boot off the installation disc and reset the password.....

It is not the W 7 installation. It is a ClickFree backup drive that I can't access. She did give me most of the other passwords, but because she had not used this in some time, probably from 2007 or 08, she never thought to give me that one. THERE WERE OTHER PRIORITIES AT THE TIME!

But that site you gave me, reinergirl, is interesting. I did not know that. Thanks for the help.

I have tried all the above suggestions, with no luck. I am now on the google sites suggested and working away at it as I can.

Thanks everyone.

Dave

There is a pricy ancient Egyptian cat statue that sold at Christie's. One can find lots of images of it but the statue doesn't have a name that I see.

Try Mafdet, Sekhmet (and some links)

I found this name, a stone cat, the earliest feline Egyptian goddess
Mafdet
and Sekhmet

Cat Breeds - List of Cat Breeds - Cat Breed Information
What is the Oldest Domestic Cat Breed? | 8 Ancient Cat Breeds | Pawsitively Pets
Sphynx cat - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Feline Forever: Mythology - cats in Ancient Egypt
The Cat in Ancient Egypt
Cats in Ancient Egypt (Mafdet and Sekhmet)
Ancient Egypt Online: Cats in Ancient Egypt

Since she didn't write it down, I would think it would be easy for her to remember. You can also try things like maumau or mau-mau or mau_mau

Have you looked in the area where the computer was? She may have written it on the back of the keyboard, picture, bottom of a drawer, back of the computer or in some opening door on the computer.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions. There are some good sites for me to research, and I will do that over the next few days/weeks.

This just proves how good passwords are to secure your information. And then if she added a number, it may be impossible?

Heather did not write these things down, so I am stumped at this point. I will not give up on this. If I am not able to access this in the next couple weeks, I will just put the drive into her file cabinet, and hope that I do see the light some day?

I have been through most of her 'stuff' but, like mentioned above, might come across something in the future.

Thanks again

Dave

Hi Dave
I would be looking for something more personal. Perhaps her reference is an inside joke to remind her of a previous pet or object. Jim

Have you tried a ouija board, he said, tongue firmly planted in cheek.

I agree with Jim, it's nothing so obvious as an actual cat name or breed. It must be a trigger for something else. She may even have changed the password and didn't change the hint.

It could be anything, I think the files are lost to the ages. Sorry, wish there was something we could do.

Analyse the other pw's she used for that second number part, memory hints for those that like to remember a lot of names or words is to make up a sentence from the letters in the hint, might be as simple as taking the f irst letter of each word of the hint phrase. When dw's windows xp crashed, I bought a new computer for her and just let the old one sit. She used that for why she likes paper photos, heard about it for three years finally decided I had heard enough about the lost pictures and spent a week researching and managed to recover them by using a program to reinstall by doing a repair instead of a complete reformat. Windows allows you to keep passwords in a file so that you don't have to type in each time, somebody else suggested, might be hard to find but easier than the needle in the haystack.

For some reason I keep thinking that CLICKFREE should be able to do something for you. For sure this isn't the first time they have had a user lose important documents through no fault of their own. And we often hear about "back doors" used to unlock entry to complex programs (OK, that part is in the movies, but...).

I would think it through carefully, and have a go at their support group. (Clickfree Product Support - Clickfree)

You just never know. If the support group aren't able to help you I would be tempted to go up a rung or two, to the executives of the company. Someone there has to 1) know what could be used to get it unlocked, and 2) have the authority to do it.

Until you do exhaust that route, I wouldn't discuss it here any more. Not because you don't trust us, but anyone can read this, without even being registered. Your discussion here could scare off CLICKFREE too, by the way.

Good luck, Dave.
