Ethical hackers often help recover files or reset passwords, as we do in the Sticky Keys hack in Chapter 2. To do so, you can use a bootable recovery disc or USB drive. These are typically used to reinstall Windows if it becomes damaged so that you can access your files on the computer.
To create a boot disc or USB drive, you can download a free evaluation copy of Windows 10 directly from Microsoft, then burn or install it onto a DVD or USB flash drive. You’ll need a disc or drive that can hold at least 8GB.
