You can reset Mac OS X (Taken that you are running OS X) this will delete all user accounts and passwords, but keep the data intact. Boot into single user mode (Hold "Command[Apple]" + "S" upon chime)

Type the following commands:

fsck -y

mount -uw

rm /var/db/.AppleSetupDone

this will reset mac os x, and yopu will need to reboot to see the effects.

I just did it yesterday. Can confirm it works. However, you will lose your keychain but at least your files are back

EDIT: It only allows you to create a new admin account but your old one is still there. Use the new admin to change the old account's password. Your keychain will still be lost.
