How to recover or reset the Admin password on a DLink DES-3326SR switch

I was given a DLink DES-3326SR switch by a friend.  However, I cannot login to the box.  The admin password was set a long time ago and no one rembers the password.  How can I clear this?

There is a reset button on the back of the box.  Push the reset button with a paper clip and hold for 10 seconds and then try accessing the device.  You might also want to power cycle the box.

Thanks, but I do not see a reset button anywhere on the box. Is it under a label?
