The lesson to be learned here is to write down passwords particularly ones you use infrequently. In other words you are snookered!

What I generally do is create a text file with the password in it. For example if a .rar file has a password that is needed to extract it. I backup the program file to cd and have the text file along with it. As Ewen stated you are screwed if you have don't have the password.

Please let us know if our advice was able to help you.

On ANY Help Forums which I frequent, password help is NOT provided. On some forums the thread is closed. Not sure if Justin is still the owner/Admin here but I wouldn't be surprised to see your thread closed. I would.

It's a good day when you learn something

Still, how do we know the OP is the legitimate owner of this file? Question to the regulars here, how many times have you forgotten your own passwords?

At best, the OP can get a pwd cracker, but the chances of success are next to nil, even after several days of uninterrupted searching, weeks if the pwd length is several alphanumerical characters long. Do the math, the possible combinations in the right order are staggering.

Ritu96 is SOL.

"the OP says he put a password on a file".

In the words of Mandy Rice-Davis, "he would say that, wouldn't he"? That someone says that he owns the file, computer, account that he has "forgotten" the password for means nothing.

So what type of file is it? zip, rar word, excel ????.....

If it's a compressed file downloaded off the net.....do a search and re find the file as they always include (tell you the password ) before you download.
