#1 - I never use the admin account for backup. I always create a
separate backup account so I can change the admin password if needed
without breaking LOTS of stuff. Or the backup system messes up and
does lock the only admin account.....oops.

I actually do not use the admin account much either. I set it up as
the backup/emergency account to use when the working admin account
messes up.

I suggest you consider using a "backup" account in the future.
