Followers of Buddhism are convinced that Gautama attained enlightenment while meditating underneath a sacred Ficus leaf for 49 days.

However, we believe that all people working with a massive number of documents – from electronic tables to monstrous databases are also able to escape to Nirvana.

This is because we are used to losses. We try to be accurate and attentive; however, this is not a panacea. Sooner or later, it will all happen: the program will crash in the most inconvenient time, the file with the project will get broken, the database will fail, and then hours, days or even years of work will vanish forever in the midst of digital disaster.

The bearded system administrator – a symbol of compromise and patience – will start to pull his hair out and vanish into monks order – and we will be left with no choice but to calm down and find peace away from the pressing world.

But the most annoying is when everything is working, and we can’t use it. Like in a children’s riddle, Try to reach a yummy peach.  The story is about a Microsoft product: email and calendar in Outlook.

Just imagine a running computer with correctly configured Outlook. Dozens of networked accounts, hundreds of important letters – and you have to go on a business trip tomorrow. And then in the process of setting the email account on a notebook, in this very moment, there is an awakening:  from tens of passwords, you can only remember one or two, and not even accurately.

To be brief, the challenge comes to the basics; how to restore access to all the accounts connected to Outlook?

The journey of a patient user: boring, long, unpleasant

The solution is as plain as day: and yet as convenient as a suitcase without a handle. In reality, the sequence of events is as follows: from your working Outlook you write down on paper all the electronic addresses, and then with stubbornness that would be better to use somewhere else, undoubtedly you start recovering all the passwords via corresponding web user-software interfaces. It is guaranteed this process will waste a lot of your time, will make your life more complicated and certain problems won’t be resolved at all in this way.

The main inconvenience here has to do with the fact that the password established by the interface is always changing and you will have to enter it again in all the e-mail programs. It is especially tiring if one email address is used by several people on different computers, then the waste of time is guaranteed.

Even worse is corporate email, the system administrator is for some reason away. It is acceptable if he comes back in a few hours, but what if he fell ill or even worse, left his job. The password then can be lost for an open-ended or never-ending amount of time.

And in the end, it might often be useful to have access to *.pst/*.ost files. Actually, these are applicable by Outlook updating precise copies of your email inboxes holding all letters, attachments, and addresses. In any case it’s very helpful – when working with emails, it is not necessary to connect to a server every time, but transfer the whole history of correspondence to a new computer.

What’s more, it’s not difficult to find all the archives. They are archived in Documents – Outlook files (if the Outlook version was updated from version 7 or older, then you have to look in hidden folders: AppData – Local – Microsoft – Outlook). There is only one problem: these folders are often protected by a password. And if this is lost, it can only be recovered by a specialist PO. This is explained below.

The journey of a cunning user: light, fast, graceful

While you are struggling with the manual recovery of passwords, arguing with co-workers because emails are not working, the son of mum’s friend is turning to professionals. It appears there are lots of professional programs on the Internet which can for a small fee hack all passwords and accounts connected with Outlook, and at the same time from *.pst/*ost files.

In our opinion, the most helpful and pleasant is to use Recovery Toolbox: https://outlookpassword.recoverytoolbox/.

IMPORTANT: Note that the application works with all Outlook except Office 365, and password to Microsoft Exchange Server doesn’t allow hacking because it uses Windows Domain Controller.  Secondly, the license for Recovery Toolbox for Outlook Password is as little as $19.


To finish the opus, (to cut a long story short), it might not be perfect from the point of view of confidentiality. However this is a piece of genuine advice, which will enable you to save your time and nerves:

Write down the passwords on a piece of paper, put the paper in a book, and put the book on a shelf. Simple, with taste and hope, the main thing is not to get confused which of Ostrovsky’s books has hidden coded messages and which one hides slush fund.
