I forgot the administrator password on my Windows Server 2012, and I have been locked for a few days. Now I need to get into my server and get my job done. I have try many free and paid programs to recover Windows Server 2012 administrator password, but none of them really work. Is there any way to recover or reset my forgotten password?
