I know there’s tons of password reset issues, but I couldn’t find any posts that seemed to provide what I’m looking for.
I’m unable to ssh or login directly when connecting my pi to a monitor. I’ve tried the default pi/raspberry login, I’ve tried my ncp login (shows “This account is currently not available”) and I’ve tried whatever other pi/passwords that I might have set up, but I haven’t connected in this way in a long time so I have no memory of setting different credentials.
I can connect to my instance on a local computer and sign in with my ncp login and see my files, but I’m having an issue where my 10TB HDD is only giving me 3.9TB so I was trying to connect so I could run the commands that seemed to resolve the problem in this post (Unable to use entirety of hard drive for storage - #6 by xyx) but without being able to get command line access, I’m out of luck.
I’d imagine my login solution would involve some sort of intervention with the sd card? I’ve plugged it into my windows machine, but didn’t see any files that looked like they would help. Pages about recovering pi logins refer to an “/etc/passwd” directory, or some “/etc/shadow” directory, but the only folder I see is like “overlays” and there’s no files referring to passwords or anything.
Is there anything I can do?
If not, if I wipe the sd card and start a nextcloud install from scratch, will I be able to access my files once I plug back in my HDD that currently houses all my data?
