From Rixler Software:
Whenever a password protected document becomes unavailable to you just because you don't remember the password, the whole situation may seem disastrous at first. A password to open an Excel file, or a password to edit it are often lost, so recovering them and retrieving access to crucial data again is a task of the highest priority.
Excel Password Recovery Master works like a universal "recall-my-password" tool - it either restores or removes if restoration isn't possible all passwords from Microsoft Excel documents. The program supports all Excel formats including XLS, XLT, XLA, XLSX, XLSM, XLTX, XLTM, XLAM, XLSB and equally easily cracks passwords of any length and complexity.
With Excel Password Recovery Master you can hack a password to open an Excel file, a password to modify it, a workbook password and a shared workbook password; VBA project passwords and passwords of individual worksheets are crackable too.
Thanks to a straightforward and absolutely plain interface the recovery process is as easy as it possibly can be. You merely run the program, open a document, click the Crack button and grab your hacked Excel passwords. And you can copy them to the clipboard right there to open the protected documents directly from Recovery Master. Depending on MS Excel document version some passwords are recovered by the program, while others are removed instead making the document unprotected.
Excel Password Recovery Master enables virtually instant Excel password recovery thanks to the special password cracking server. At the same time you can protect the tool itself with a master password so only authorized user would be able to recover passwords from your Excel documents.
A balanced blend of functionality and friendliness, Excel Password Recovery Master saves your work while not affecting your privacy. Can't remember what that password was? Remember Excel Password Recovery Master instead.
Connects to the developer's server to remove passwords, hence the removal is pretty quick
Does NOT support Excel 2007+ files locked with the open-file password
Cannot recover any passwords to open; removal is the only option if your file type is supported
As mentioned above, this program uploads protected documents to the remote servers and fulfills password removal in the cloud. This approach is pretty effective, however, the list of the file formats the software can unlock is pretty limited and dated. The newly established online services (Password-find.com and so on) that also instantly unlock files in the cloud, support Excel 2013 files and can recover the "open" passwords remotely currently seem to be far superior to this outdated tool.
