QBW Password Details:

Password Replacement:
Database password verification values can be replaced easily to restore access your to company file data. Sensitive data encryption keys are usually recoverable, thus access can be restored in full. Just open your file and check keys recovery status. In worst case scenario (unrecoverable keys, very complex "Admin" password, etc.) you still can replace QuickBooks "Admin" password and open company data file, but without access to credit card, tax and bank accounts details, if any are present.
You can use QuickBooks Forensics search engine to estimate types and number of encrypted records.

Password Recovery:
Password search is always an option and QBW Password allows you to set several attacks in queue: dictionary, brute-force and mixed (combination of dictionary, sequential and fixed parts for precise search range control). You can split password in parts and set each part independently with virtually endless number of combinations. Additional modifications are available including unique keyboard layouts-aware recovery technique, char replacement (e.g. I or i with 1), etc. We did our best to enhance this tool performance as well as the recovery speed with some advanced methods and it found to be the fastest tool for QuickBooks password recovery.

Password recovery speed:
Password recovery speed is variable depending on additional information recoverable from the file, Admin username, etc.
