Is there any way I can open this database

Posted on 2011-04-22

We came across several old databases on our server storage.  Some of these we use to use on an old network.  1 database in particular I remember as being pretty useful... but I can no longer open it due to the below error.  Is there anything that can be done to get it open? I was also not able to import all objects into a new db container...   suggestions?

    You'd have to know the workgroup used to secure that database, and you'd need a valid username/password. If you don't know those, then unfortunately there's little you can do about it. There are utilities that can tell you the usernames/passwords, but that won't do you much good without the workgroup file.

    Note also that while I'm sure that the file belongs to you EE rules prohibit us from doing any more than what I've done here. We cannot assist you in circumventing security.
