I have been trying to recover a PowerPoint file password for 2 days now and it seems like it's going to take forever. I'm currently using a licensed version of PowerPoint Password Recovery. I need a quick resolution to this. Please let me know what has worked for you.

    If it's a modify password on a 2007 or 2010 format file (PPTX, PPSX), then just open it in PPT 2003 or prior. Those versions ignore the modify passwords.

    It's actually an open password.

    The only way to crack an open password is the brute force it. It's going to take a while!
