    Per <http://www.nabble.com/Remove-old-password-in-Windows-
    td20313774.html>, Windows caches SMB credentials by default. My
    question is... if you had a hard drive that you pulled from a
    computer, could the cached SMB credentials (assuming there were any)
    be extracted and then given to another computer?
