The admin at school asked me to look around the network for security problems, its win2k with about 1000+ computers(there rich).
Anyways, the win2k password files(SAM file) is based in c:\winnt\config. I know that no one can really access that, but i read that it when the repair utility is ran, it backs up the sam file to c:\winnt\repair. And guess what every pc i have looked on has the sam file in that repair dir. But the file is only 20k big, and what i need to know is, is this file big enough to hold all the passwords for like 500+ users? or will the real important sam file be on the server only? if it is then whats the file on every pc on the network.
