Recover Password in Outlook 2010

my client did a backup of the pst file in outlook 2010.
After the backup he closed outlook then the next day opened it to check his email
It is coming up with a message saying it needs the Password to open the data file
Only he never put a password in it
He says his finger slipped when he was doing it at the point where it asks if you want to password protect it.
I think what happened it put nonsense letters or numbers in and saved that
Now he nor I can open Outlook
is there a way to recover this password without uninstalling the whole office program and reinstalling it?
Repair does not work because there is nothing i guess to repair
You cannot get past this password screen- if you do not put the password in Office 2010 closes

I know of a freeware program that can do it but I don't think we are allowed to indulge such info on the forums ... soz pal

Robin9, I would guess that your SOL on recovering a .pst with out the password. there might be programs available to be able to but that is not allowed on the Windows 7 forums. Too many times people copy someone elses' file and try to get into it. Just forget getting any help to crack a password here on Windows 7 forums. Not allowed.

I am pretty sure that the Admin's will back me up on that..

You have a backup .PST file from a month ago, right?
Are the PST Folder Structure and Accounts the same now as they were a month ago?

If you do have a backup .PST file:
  • Rename the current PW protected .PST file (add OLD to the file name)
  • Copy (Restore) the month old .PST file backup to the same location as the current .PST file
  • Open Outlook and see if it uses the month old file correctly
