    FM 6 Data Base Password Lost



      FM 6 Data Base Password Lost


      We use FM Server 5.5 and FM Pro 6.0 and are looking to upgrade but our consultant can't access the databases because we lost/forgot our password. How do we reset or get our password.

          Thank you for your post.


          FileMaker, Inc. does not reset passwords.  You will need to find the password, or go back to an older copy where the password wasn't set and import the data from the password protected file.

               There is a company that sells a product that allows you to recover FileMaker passwords. I have used it on several files where the employee / developer left and never recorded the password.  It is a PC application from Password-Service.com and is called "Filemaker Password Recovery".
