I have a Computer that Crashed, I moved all data from hard drive to new computer.

Now when I attempt to import Data from PST (2007) it says it has a password??

Client states that she never had one before????

How can I strip off this password to access data

Thanks Everone,

    Assisted Solution

    Windows Password Recovery has a little app made specifically for this purpose.  You can set the pw on that file to blank, then access it and remove the pw requirement altogether.  You can download the app off their website, one time use is $30.  Works a treat, I've yet to see it fail.  --TX
