Dear Amy: Our 40-something married son had password-protected some old files on our home computer. We had trouble with our hard drive. We told our son, but he said he couldn’t quickly remember his passwords to retrieve his own files.

We went ahead and had our computer repaired, and when everything was transferred off and then back onto our restored computer, the files were no longer password-protected.
