Recover PDF Password ships
Eltima has introduced Recover PDF Password, an application used to retrieve misplaced PDF file passwords. If only the owner or user password is known, the application can duplicate the document with all printing, editing and copying restrictions removed. Files are dragged and dropping into the application, which then prompts users with a "Decrypt" button. The application supports Unicode passwords, Acrobat 9.x files and 256-bit encrypted files.
Passwords can be retrieved using various methods including password length, template, or an exhaustive search. If a portion of the password is known, it can be input to the application to reduce search time. The software also supports non-English characters contained in passwords.
Recover PDF Password is compatible with Mac OS X 10.4 or higher and can be purchased directly from the company for $40.
