Forgot admin/root password on DSM 5.1




First off I am a NOOB.  I just came back from a nice long hoilday and before I went I reset the main password to my Xpenology NAS. 

Now I can not log into the DiskStation.  I have tried all differnt passwords but no luck.  The version I am running is 5.1 .  


What is the best way of resetting the login account without losing the data.

The shares still work and Plex works fine.
