I have lost the password of my excel file. If someone has a tool to recover password for opening files I can send my file over to remove the password.

I got this message from the site

We have recovered your document, but it does NOT contain the marker text inside. This service is provided free of charge for the evaluation purposes only. That's why we ask you to prepare a special document.

This demo is available FREE of charge and is meant for EVALUATING Express Recovery; therefore, please prepare a special document (Word or Excel) for the testing. If you want to try password recovery on a Word document, include the string "LastBitTest" in it. The document can have any content, the string "LastBitTest" is to be present in the text, at any place in it. If you want to test an Excel document, set the title of one worksheet to "LastBitTest". The document can contain any number of worksheets with any content; just one of the worksheets must be named "LastBitTest" (to rename a worksheet, right-click on it, then select the Rename item on the menu that appears, and then enter LastBitTest). The size of the document should not exceed one megabyte (no restrictions on the size or content are set in the paid mode).
