InFixi Excel Password Recovery is a simple little application created to help you unlock protected Excel workbooks. It’s actually a password cracker that uses the two popular password retrieval methods: brute force attack and dictionary attack, to recover lost or forgotten passwords assigned to Excel files.
InFixi Excel Password Recovery is a very easy-to-use application thanks to its simple, neat and intuitive interface. Even complete beginners can use this handy program without any problem.
Another nice thing about this tool is the fact that it can recover passwords for both XLS and XLSX Excel files. It actually supports MS Excel 2010, 2007, 2003, 2002, 2000 and 97 files.
Unfortunately, regardless of the recovery mode selected - “brute force attack” or the “dictionary” one - the recovery speed is dependent on the complexity of the assigned password. Simple passwords may be recovered within a few minutes or hours, but more complex ones can take quite a while. Furthermore, the demo version of this software shows you only the first 3 character of the password.
Anyway, if you really need to recover the password for an Excel file, this tool might be a good choice, at least as a last resort. It eventually gets its job done, but neither quickly, nor cheaply.
