Windows 7: password protected .pst file Outlook 2010

password protected .pst file Outlook 2010


There is a user here at my work who forgot their password for a password protected .pst file they have on their computer. Can anyone recommend a software that will remove the password protection from the .pst file. I work in the helpdesk at my company, but I have never come across this issue before. Any help/suggestions are greatly appreciated.
