Today I have got a software named Database Password Sleuth which will help you to recover the Database passwords for Microsoft Access. The application is a freeware which is very rare as normally application which will help you recover the passwords will charge you money in doing that and only then you will be allowed to use the software. The application can be used to recover the password for many version of Microsoft Access databases like 95, 97, 2000, 2002 and 2003. The software has a very simple interface and is very easy to use. The application can recover the password instantly and it doesn’t use the brute force method to recover the password.
The process to recover the password is really very simple. You just have to browse or computer or network, and then find the “.mdb” database file and press the Find Password button which will recover your password and show it to you including the length of the password and the Microsoft Access version. The application is absolutely free unlike its other counterparts available in the market. The software is very rare of its kind, now by rare I don’t mean that we don’t have similar software’s available in the market. By rare I mean to say is that its very rare that this kind of a software is a freeware.
The company, Shatterock Technologies who have made this software give a message that we should not use this software for illegal or unethical use by recovering the passwords of the databases that you don’t own, create or have a right to view and I totally agree to each and every word that they say and you should also follow that to keep yourself out of trouble.
This is the first screen which will open up when you will open the software for the first time after downloading and installing. The software has only one window and no menus and only four buttons. The software has a Browse button using which you can choose the location of the *.mdb file in your computer from which the password has to be extracted. Once you select the *.mdb file using the Browse button half of your work is done . Now you just have to press the Find Password button and it will recover the password for you. The software also has the Copy to Clipboard button using which you can copy the password to the clipboard. The Open Database button will open the database for you whose password you are extracting.
