My GF recently started working with a Mac and while I'm a IT tech with Linux and Windows knowledge, I'm very much a noob with Macs.
The problem is she's working on a Mac that another user (the guy she replaced) set a admin password, now no one knows said password neither does he pick up the phone.
I've seen there’s a way to create a new admin account via this post:
How can I get admin access to a Mac without knowing the current password?
My question is will she loose any data from the old account? She has some projects and such (I know the keychain will be lost, but she has all the passwords she needs).
