    Okay, I've got a bit of a problem. Whenever I get ideas for films/scenes whatever, I write them down and save them as Appleworks files. About a year ago I started writing a film. It was just a load of scene ideas/characters etc and so was all written in seperate files. I then encrited these files because I was embaressed that somebody might read them!
    Okay now, about a year later I've stumbled back acrss these files but can't remember the password to decript them! Is there anything I can do to open these files again?
    Please, please, please somebody say there is!!!
    Thanks!

    What program did you use to encrypt them?

    I'm assuming he used the native utility in OS 9.

    And the bad news is that there is no way to decrypt them without the password. That's the point. [​IMG]

    Isn't there some way he can access it through "terminal?"

    Nope. Good luck earl, but I think they're stuck.

    I had a feeling that would be the case! I'll keep looking around though cause there's got to be something!
    Thanks for the replies BTW!
