Hi Jim,

I knew of that technique because a while back, my Outlook

"decided on its own" that one of my PST files was password

protected.

It worked for me, and I am glad it worked for you.

All the best,

How to remove "PST" Password? (Outlook 2007)

I just followed the steps to ad a password to my Outlook 2007 data file (pst

file). I typed the pasword twice as requested, and it was accepted.

Now, the very FIRST time I try to load Outlook again, it ask for the

password (of course) . . . . but does NOT ACCEPT MY PASSWORD (!)

What kind of !#$!#? is this?

How can I get rid of the "pst" password, so I can get to my data?

The instructions for setting up the password said words-to-the-effect that

"This is not very secure; just an informal protection among people you trust

like family, etc."

Well, how can I REMOVE the password on my own "pst" file?

(I'll never do this again!) Cripes.

check to see if your caps lock is on, also, are you sure it is not asking for

some kind of network or isp password instead?

No, the caps are not on.

It is asking for the "pst" password . . . the one I just created!

But it does not accept it.

Howdy,

You might want to check this:

http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/pst_password.html

It will give you the password.

Then, either you can eliminate its use, or you will have

some important diagnostic information.

All the best,

Kenneth
