SOURCE: money file password

I'm not aware of any FREEware that will recover MS Money passwords, only for the recovery of corrupted files. This should come as no surprise though, given the inherent desperation factor for their product.

However, the following should help you get started on your path to recovery.

BREIF PRIMER: http://financialsoft.about.com/od/datasecurity/f/lostpasswds.htm

REVIEW AND COMPARE the following software choices:

- Advanced Money Password Recovery v1.11
$30.00 http://www.tucows.com/preview/284172
Shows only the 1st 3 characters of the password unless you purchase (to get the entire password). However, if those 3 characters are enough to jar your memory to the whole password, it will be enough to save you the $30.00.

- Money Key
$45.00 http://www.supershareware.com/info/money-key.html
Demo version will "recover short passwords". How many character's "short" is, I don't know.

- Advanced Office Password Recovery
$49.00 http://www.elcomsoft.com/aopr.html
Appears to be the most comprehensive, but also the most expensive.

- Password Spyer 2K
$15.95 http://www.maros-tools.com/products/spyer/index.htm
This one is from a link in the above primer discussing recovery of MS Money passwords, but that app is not mention on their webpage. If you inquire and find it is capable, it is the cheapest.

You may also want to consider contacting a local PC tech (or the teenage geek next door) who may be willing to perform the one-time task for an even more nominal fee.

Lastly, but most importantly .... please, please, please let this be the last lesson you'll need for the rest of your life about the vital importance of backing up ALL things essential (data as well as passwords). Specifically concerning passwords, you NEED (repeat NEED) a "password manager". I've tried and evaluated dozens of them, and in my opinion, RoboForm www.roboform.com is the clear standout. Been using it for many years now with absolutely zero regrets. It also has several other very useful capabilites as well concerning your favorites, contacts, search engine index, etc. And if you're a mobile PC user in any way, and you have/use a USB flash/key drive, take a look at the portable "RoboForm2Go" version ... simply indispensable.

Good luck.

How to Restore Files From a Windows Image


Windows 10 OS provides ample opportunities for data backup which include tracking file history and functionality that allows creating an image of the entire system. The concept of the system developers is that the functions of File History are required for convenient and rapid everyday recovery of user data, while a system image is created not so often and allows complete recovery of a partition (including system files) to a certain operable OS.
It is recommended to create a backup system image copy before modifying the hardware configuration of a computer, when updating the system, installing new drivers and so on. If something goes wrong, a backup system image copy will allow you restoring the system to the operable condition of Windows. However, when restoring from such image all the information on the system disk is erased by the image files. What should we do if we need only some files to be restored from the system image?
Fortunately, this task is rather easy. The matter is that the standard system of creating a backup system image copy in Windows 10 is based on the concept of virtual disks (Virtual Hard Drive). That is, images are recorded and stored as virtual drive files in the format vhdx (Virtual Hard Drive). Such virtual drives can be easily mounted with standard features of Windows 10 and be operated as ordinary drives within the system. Attaching such disk to the system, a user can restore from the backup system image separate files and directories.

Connecting a VHD disk containing a backup system image copy

System image is usually backed up to a separate physical disk or a network folder. That is why the first thing to do is to connect to the computer a media containing a backup copy of Windows 10 image (or connect a network folder).
Open the computer management console Computer Management and go to disk manager Storage->Disk Management (this console can be launched from the menu WinX by pressing the key combination Win+X and selecting the item Disk Management). In order to mount a vhd virtual disk select the item Attach VHD in the Action menu.

http://www.fixya.comwrite_tip-wyytcj10vubwvpdmj0eoj2yx-1-14.png

In the window that appears click Browse and specify the path to vhdx file. This file is usually stored on a drive that contains a backup system image copy in the directory with a name in the following format [Backup_Drive]:\WindowsImageBackup\[PC_Name]\Backup xxxx-xx-xx xxxxxx. In our example, complete path to the vhdx file is as follows: \\[PC_Name]\VHD\08_01_2016.vhd.

http://www.fixya.comwrite_tip-wyytcj10vubwvpdmj0eoj2yx-1-5_0.png

After the virtual drive has been mounted it has to be assigned a drive letter. To do it, click the right mouse button on the drive and select the menu item "Change Drive Letters and Path".

http://www.fixya.comwrite_tip-wyytcj10vubwvpdmj0eoj2yx-1-9_0.png

In the window that opens click Add and assign any letter to the drive, for example, E:

http://www.fixya.comwrite_tip-wyytcj10vubwvpdmj0eoj2yx-1-0_0.png

After this operation, a new drive will appear in the system, to which letter E:\ is assigned. Open in with Windows Explorer or any file manager and find the files that need to be restored.

http://www.fixya.comwrite_tip-wyytcj10vubwvpdmj0eoj2yx-1-2_0.png

Advice. User documents (photos, videos, music and other documents are usually saved to user's profile in the directory E:\Users\{user_name}.
After you have found and copied the necessary files, the external disk can be disconnected and as a result, the virtual vhd disk will also disappear from the system. Separate files from the system image can be recovered in the same way in Windows 7 and 8 as well.
If suddenly happened the lost of VHD image of Windows (for example, accidentally or intentionally deleted) it can be recovered by Hetman Partition Recovery. After recovering it with data recovery software you can restore individual files by stated above algorithm.

How can you backup and restore the Registry?


Maintaining the Registry

Windows 95
Microsoft included a utility on the Windows 95 CD-ROM that lets you create backups of the Registry on your computer. The Microsoft Configuration Backup program, CFGBACK.EXE, can be found in the \Other\Misc\Cfgback directory on the Windows 95 CD-ROM. This utility lets you create up to nine different backup copies of the Registry, which it stores, with the extension RBK, in your \Windows directory. If your system is set up for multiple users, CFGBACK.EXE won't back up the USER.DAT file.

After you have backed up your Registry, you can copy the RBK file onto a floppy disk for safekeeping. However, to restore from a backup, the RBK file must reside in the \Windows directory. Windows 95 stores the backups in compressed form, which you can then restore only by using the CFGBACK.EXE utility.

Windows 98
Microsoft Windows 98 automatically creates a backup copy of the registry every time Windows starts, in addition to this you can manually create a backup using the Registry Checker utility by running SCANREGW.EXE from Start | Run menu.

What to do if you get a Corrupted Registry
Windows 95, 98 and NT all have a simple registry backup mechanism that is quite reliable, although you should never simply rely on it, remember to always make a backup first!

Windows 95
In the Windows directory there are several hidden files, four of these will be SYSTEM.DAT & USER.DAT, your current registry, and SYSTEM.DA0 & USER.DA0, a backup of your registry. Windows 9x has a nice reature in that every time it appears to start successfully it will copy the registry over these backup files, so just in case something goes wrong can can restore it to a known good state. To restore the registry follow these instruction:
[list=1]
* Click the Start button, and then click Shut Down.

* Click Restart The Computer In MS-DOS Mode, then click Yes.

* Change to your Windows directory. For example, if your Windows directory is c:\windows, you would type the following:

cd c:\windows

* Type the following commands, pressing ENTER after each one. (Note that SYSTEM.DA0 and USER.DA0 contain the number zero.)

attrib -h -r -s system.dat
attrib -h -r -s system.da0
copy system.da0 system.dat
attrib -h -r -s user.dat
attrib -h -r -s user.da0
copy user.da0 user.dat

* Restart your computer.

Following this procedure will restore your registry to its state when you last successfully started your computer.

If all else fails, there is a file on your hard disk named SYSTEM.1ST that was created when Windows 95 was first successfully installed. If necessary you could also change the file attributes of this file from read-only and hidden to archive to copy the file to C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM.DAT.

Windows NT
On Windows NT you can use either the "Last Known Good" option or RDISK to restore to registry to a stable working configuration.

How can I clean out old data from the Registry?
Although it's possible to manually go through the Registry and delete unwanted entries, Microsoft provides a tool to automate the process, the program is called RegClean. RegClean analyzes Windows Registry keys stored in a common location in the Windows Registry. It finds keys that contain erroneous values, it removes them from the Windows Registry after having recording those entries in the Undo.Reg file.

My computer crashed, how do I recover my NTI Backup Now EZ program? My computer can't find the NTI setup.exe.


Many people confuse system back-ups with system restore and/or recovery programs. They are very different. A backup makes a copy of selected (or all) files and stores them to a disc, tape, hard drive, or other device that will allow you to protect your files in the event of data loss. Say you accidentally delete an entire directory instead of a single file. Your backup would allow you to re-load that directory. System restore/recovery files are used in the cases where you either want to reload the computer back to a certain condition (factory restore), or need to completely recover your computer in the event of a crash. These types of files usually need one of two things to work. If the recover/restore software was OEM manufacturer supplied, there may be a BIOS routine that, using a hotkey on boot-up, will allow you to access the recovery/restore file. If it is an aftermarket program like your, recovery/restore files usually need to create a bootable USB or CD/DVD that can be inserted on boot-up, and then the files on that device will perform the recovery/restore. If all you have a a system backup, you may have to reinstall the operating system, drivers, and then the backup software. After that, you can use you backup file to recover your remaining programs/data.

Factory reset


Do not rename the backup folder created by Samsung Recovery Solution or change the directory structure in the backup. If the name or structure has changed SRS will not see your recovery point when you attempt to perform a restore.

This restores the PC to the condition it was in when the Complete Backup was made. If a Complete Backup was never made, this can still be used to restore the PC to its initial status. (Out of the Box condition)

Warning: A Complete restore erases all current files, settings, programs and other data and replaces them with the files, settings, programs and other data contained in the Complete Backup. In other words, it restores your computer to the way it was when you made the Complete Backup. Also, note that any programs installed after the Complete Backup will still need to be reinstalled.

Important:

  • If you have data that you need to save, create a Data Backup before performing a Complete Restore. With Data Backup you can save your files to an external device and then use Data Restore to load those files back onto the PC.
  • If the computer powers on, but Windows does not load, press the F4 Key at the Samsung logo when you first power on the computer; and then go to step 2.
  • If the Samsung Recovery partition has been removed from your PC, your notebook will need to be sent to the service center for reimaging.

To perform a Complete Restore, follow these steps:

  1. Open Samsung Recovery Solution 5.
  2. main_screen_cropped.jpg

  1. Once Samsung Recovery Solution 5 loads, click Restore. The Restore dialog appears.
  2. Click Complete Restore. The Restore > Complete Restore dialog appears.
  3. restore_main.jpg

  1. On the Restore > Complete Restore dialog, there is list of backups created using Complete Backup and the expected time needed to perform a restore with each backup. If no backups have been created then the Computer Initial Status backup is the only item listed. Click the backup you would like to use for this restore, and then click Next.
  2. Important: Make sure you have power connected to the PC. If power is lost during a restore, you need to start the process again from the beginning.

    select.jpg

  1. Samsung Recovery Solution 5 prompts you to restart the computer to continue. Click OK to restart the computer.
  2. Warning: If you have data on drive C that you do not want to lose, stop now and perform a Data Backup.

    restart.jpg

  1. The computer restarts and Samsung Recovery Solution 5 prompts you to click Yes to Delete all data on drive C. Click yes to proceed.
  2. A progress bar appears showing the current transfer speed, the amount of data copied, elapsed time and estimated total time to completion.
  3. After the Complete Restore is complete, Samsung Recovery Solution 5 prompts you to restart your computer. Click OK to restart.
  4. After you restart your computer, the restore process is complete.
  5. Note: You will need to perform an additional restart for Windows to apply its changes.

How do I start making my Maxtor start backing yp


Do you want to create a backup file or do you want to keep your original files saved on your Maxtor? If you want to create a backup file for the files on your computer, type "ntbackup" in the "Run", the backup wizard will automatically start and click "next" > "backup fies and settings" > "Let me choose what to backup" and then select the files and folders you want to backup by click the snap-ins (+ signs) and check mark the files or folders and again "next". In the option "choose a place to save your backup" click "browse" (if you are prompted that the drive A:\ is empty click "cancel") locate your Maxtor directory, click "Ok" and name the backup file something you like, click "next", the backup process will begin with the status monitor. It may take several minutes depending on the files you've selected. That's all. If you wanna restore the backup files, just double click the backup file you've saved and when the wizard opens, select "restore files and settings" and follow the onscreen instructions.
Good luck.

What happens if we delete hidden directory system volume informat


Hidden directories most often serve to hide important operating system-related files and user preferences. This is mostly to protect the files. But malicious programs (malware, viruses, trojans) can also use this functionality to hide their presence.

The System Volume Information folder is a hidden system folder that the System Restore tool uses to store its information and restore points. System Volume Information (SVI) is the name of the data store where Windows XP and Windows Vista keeps its System Restore files and registration databases. System Restore not only saves copies of critical system files, it also performs automated registry hive backup.

There is one SVI folder per drive being monitored by System Restore. You can not view/access the SVI folder by default but there is a way to make them visible. You might need to gain access to this folder for troubleshooting purposes.

Basically, if you delete the System Volume Information folder, you will no longer have the files and data needed to restore your system to a previous state. For example, if Windows crashes or is stuck in a continuous boot cycle, you can use System Restore to restore your system to a previous "healthy" state. However, if there are no files or registry backups available, this tool is then no longer available to you. Also, if you ever decided to use System Restore, you would need to re-create the foler in the same path so that the system files can be stored there again.

Hopefully, you backup your system and keep good backups often...
