"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If the files are encrypted using AES and you cannot remember the password the only way you'd have is to try all possible password combinations which likely is not really an option unless you know parts of the password or know it to be very short.
