    Lost Password



      Lost Password


      I took over a Filemaker vs 8.5 from a terminated employee (running on Mac). The power went off and now I cannot open the database. The previous employee doesn't remember the password.


      Is there anything I can do?

          Thank you for your post.


          Do you have a backup of the file?  If so, try using the backup and accessing the account.


          If you don't have a backup, try recovering the file (File menu -> Recover).  Then, try opening the recovered file.


          Some files have the default password still available.  That is, enter the account name "Admin" with no password. 


          Any other information you can provide may be helpful in opening the file.
