Forget my PASSWORD!

Hi, my friends,
For a while ago I encrypted my private pictures, and today I would see them, but can not remember my password! I have tried all the possible variants of password I often use to no avail! Are there other options to reset password? It should be such an opportunity, I think! Please help me and thank you in advance!

As a secure encryption app, there is no workaround or ability to recover encrypted data without the password. This is by design. If there were a workaround, it wouldn't be secure. It can only be cracked using brute force, which I think would take up to 10 years in current-day computer time.

I would suggest trying other passwords (you may have used one different from your standard one) or failing that, restore from a semi-recent backup.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

And, start using KeePass. Either the portable- or original version.
