StarOffice Password protected file Help!
Posted on 2009-07-07
I have a close family friend who's husband has just passed away, Ive been helping her gain access to her husbands laptop ect, he was the accountant for the family business, He used Star office version 8, the problem we have is many of his files are password protected.
I have 2 questions
1) How many attempts can the wife have to try and guess the password before she's locked out of the file?
2) Is there any way to hack/bypass these passwords? (3rd party software, a company ect ect)
I would really appreciate your help as the family's bank manager is visiting on Wednesday to go over the health of the business and many of these important financial files are locked.
Thanks in advance
