"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.

I would try jetcomp after C&R:

Unfortunately, this topic is on the thin line of what Experts here can recommend.
Many times, claims of "corrupt" database files have been nothing more than veiled attempts to break into secured (or otherwise protected) databases
I am sure you understand...

So you may be on your own here...

xtermie,

Just some notes.

The reason why we try to avoid posting links to "Recovery" sites is that getting around passwords seems to always be part of what they do.
Note that in the link you posted it is clearly stated:
    "You have lost your file's password."

Again, this gets us Experts in big trouble here, ...this is why I simply stated:
   "So you may be on your own here..."
...Now the OP can decide on their own what that means.
;-)

...and if you notice, this Q had been posted for almost two hours with No experts chiming in.
This is in a Zone where the first Expert will typically chime in, in less than five minutes...

But, so many experts here have been reprimanded about crossing the line, and many of us are MVP's, ...that many Experts see this type of Q as "Toxic".

Again, just FYI.

;-)
