Is there a workaround to the Windows 10 Hello PIN security login policy?

The PIN is the only credential needed to log in, no password is set, checked with samdump2.

I inherited this computer from a recently deceased family member, Microsoft refuses to send us the credentials for privacy reasons.

I dual-booted a Debian distro from which I can read the files on the Windows partition. Funny enough, the Desktop folder is completely empty, which is very strange.

I tried to "crack" the PIN using the WINHELLO2hashcat python script developed by the hashcat team: https://hashcat.net/forum/thread-10461.html Unfortunately, the TPM is enabled and the script is useless.

  1. Is there a way to reset the PIN as it is possible for passwords with the help of Trinity Rescue Kit, for example?

  2. Is there any kind of file protection I am not aware of?
