Lost my Encrypt password - How to get back?

Created: 25 Dec 2012 • Updated: 10 Feb 2013 | 3 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hello guys,


I have some data that is backup by BKE 2010 from 2011.

Now I have build up BKE 2010 R3, and I can't restore those data again.

I don't know because my encrypt password was wrong or I tried restore in another version of BKE?


If It's because my encrypt password was wrong, so how to recover it? 

And do we have any restore solution else?


Thanks guys very much!

If you have forgotten your encryption password, there is no way to get it back.  If you have a backup of your old BEDB, you can restore it and try a restore.

Look at the error messages to determine whether the restore failed because of wrong encryption password or something else.  You should be able to restore your old backups.

It's sound so sad I don't backup my BEDB.

Thanks for your support.
