Hello,

I recently backed up my blackberry data to blackberry restore file *.ipd in BlackBerry Desktop Manager and added a password to it.  I have since lost the password of the file and can't remember it.  How can I reveal or crack the file so I restore the data from the BlackBerry backup file.

The password in the IPD file is encrypted. It's also possible the whole backup file is encrypted. It cannot be recovered, despite many google search results that will tell you this is so.   This can be verified on the official blackberry forums.
