Account Password

I primarily use FileMaker Pro at work as a better spreadsheet tool.  Where my co-workers use Excel, I use FMP.  I have 5 files I open every morning.  At the end of each day I trigger a script in one file, that runs a backup of each file then closes them.  Twenty minutes after I walk out the files are copied to a secondary folder and closed down. 

 

This morning when I ran the opening script, one of the files came up prompting for a password.  These are stored on my local harddrive and I do not use passwords.  I have NEVER assigned these files to a password. "BLANK" password did not work. 

 

I tried the backup file, it opened properly.  However, I am wondering what happened.  If I had not had the backup, would I have been hosed?  Very disconcerting.  Especially since I had not used the file (although opened daily) for more than a week.
