    Password forgotten

    Hi,

    I've saved an important openoffice document with a password month ago and now that I need it I can't remember what the password is.

    Is there any possibility to open it ???

    Thanks for your help...

    You should be able to retrieve it from a live disk. Once you boot up with a live disk your install should be in storage media and browse to where the file is

    With a complex, long password - very unlikely. With a weak password there may be a possibility of cracking the password. You've had a month so should have seen this

    this

    and this
