To select the Access file that you want to recover the password for, click on the \"Open\" button and browse to the location of the file on your computer. Alternatively, you can drag and drop the file onto the program window.
Once you have selected the file, you will see its name and size displayed on the program window. You will also see a message indicating whether the file is encrypted or not.
Step 3: Choose the recovery method and start the process
The next step is to choose the recovery method that you want to use to crack the password. Thegrideon Software Access Password offers three methods: Brute-force, Dictionary and Mask attacks.
A Brute-force attack tries all possible combinations of characters until it finds the correct password. This method is guaranteed to work, but it can take a long time depending on the length and complexity of the password.
A Dictionary attack tries words from a predefined list of common passwords or words that you provide. This method is faster than brute-force, but it only works if the password is a word or a combination of words.
A Mask attack allows you to specify some known characters or patterns of the password. This method can speed up the recovery process if you have some information about the password, such as its length, case, prefix or suffix.
To choose a recovery method, click on one of the tabs at the top of the program window. You will see some options that you can adjust according to your needs. For example, if you choose Brute-force attack, you can select which character sets to use (lowercase letters, uppercase letters, numbers, symbols) and set a minimum and maximum length for the password.
When you are ready to start the recovery process, click on the \"Start\" button at the bottom of the program window. You will see a progress bar and some statistics showing how many passwords have been tested and how long it will take to finish.
Step 4: Recover your password
When the program finds your password, it will display it in a pop-up window. You can copy it to your clipboard or save it to a text file by clicking on the corresponding buttons.
