Ever lost the entire data as you or your colleague gave you a password protected Access file but forgot the password !! Your entire months of work is just ruined ? Here comes the rescue.
This utility reveals the database password of every password-protected mdb file that created with Microsoft Access 95/97/2000/XP or with Jet Database Engine 3.0/4.0 . It can be very useful if you forgot your Access Database password and you want to recover it.
- In Access 2000/XP files, this utility cannot recover passwords that contains more than 18 characters.
- This utility shows only the main database password. It cannot recover the user-level passwords.
Using Access PassView
Using the Access PassView utility is very simple. it doesn't need any installation process or additional DLL files. You can run the "accesspv.exe" file from any directory you want, and start to work. In order to get the password from your mdb file, click the "Get Password" button, select the mdb file and the password will be shown in the main text box.
There are also 2 alternative ways for getting the password of mdb file:
- Drag & Drop: You can get the password of your mdb file by dragging it from the explorer window into the Access PassView window.
- Command-line: You can get the password of your mdb file by adding the filename as command-line parameter.
We have personally tested the software with 100% success.
