Hi there! My name is***** am a computer professional with over 15 years of experience with both Mac and Windows. It would be my pleasure to help you resolve this. If you have a new hard drive, it is unlikely that your passwords are stored on it. However, I can provide you instructions for resetting your Hotmail password, and any other passwords you may need help with
