    I forgot my admin password. Not the one to my account but the one to the system. I was wondering if there was some way to reset it without knowing the old password and without losing all the data. Thanks

    Not your admin account? the system/root password?

    it also depends on the OS X version your using.
    if its Lion or newer the recovery partition allows you to reset the password.
    Or using the DVDs that came with your system
