Прошлой ночью я пытался открыть свой файл Outlook PST, но этот файл PST не открывался и показывал некоторую ошибку в пароле. Мой друг предлагает сбросить свой пароль, а также рекомендовать приложение для восстановления пароля PST файла. Я обнаружил, что этот инструмент дает отличные результаты для сброса и восстановления пароля моего файла PST.

Тем не менее, не существует ручного метода для восстановления пароля файла PST. Вы можете использовать инструмент восстановления пароля PST и восстановить пароль, чтобы разблокировать PST. Существует множество инструментов для восстановления пароля PST, которые легко удаляют пароль из зашифрованного файла PST.
