If you need to mount an external drive to back up, then you need to be logged in

comment How to Pair an iPhone 4 to an iPhone 3GS using Bluetooth
Interesting. You can pair an iPad to an iPhone, but not an iPhone to an iPhone. Just curious, what about an iPod touch to iPhone?

comment How can I log in again after downgrading a 1st-gen MacBook Air from Lion to Snow Leopard?
Update 2: Today, I tried to boot the laptop to follow the suggestion given by Naishy. However, while booting into single-user mode (cmd-s at startup) I now get unending messages of the form "Waiting for Root Device". Force-shutting it down and rebooting it normally resulted in the usual grey screen with the apple logo, followed by a grey screen with a crossed circle. Booting from the external drive and running repair- and verify- disk did not help fix this.

I tried the method stated on Apple's knowledgebase with a similar title to your suggestion - Update: I booted into single-user mode (cmd-s at startup) and changed my password with 'passwd'. It still did not work - I will try your suggested method and see how things go. The nuance here is to remove the .applesetupdone file and to create a new user in the GUI
