If you contact FileMaker Support they can give you a guided tour on the steps you can take. You can also send the file to FileMaker and for a fee they will try to repair the damaged file more then we can do with the function Recover in FileMaker Pro
I would suggest going back to a backup of the file first before doing anything that may damage the file. There is no way a FM pw can be retrieved by those software tools you mention. What they do is brute force/wipe out sections of the file to try and clear out the pw. That's not an exact science and can damage your file.
If you have a backup that you can still get access to, use that and export the data from the damaged file into your good backup.
As a next step you need to scrutinize your deployment. Very often this kind of damage comes from interference from other processes on your FileMaker Server, things like OS-level file sharing, indexing, Anti-Virus scanning,...
Thanks for your answer, i tried to contact FileMaker support, they tried to recover the data unsuccesfuly, the only thing they offer now is to sent the damaged file and they can try to repair it for 500 $ with no garenty at all...
The question is how can i export data from the damaged file? I got the clean backup from september but i cant open/repair/extract anything from the corrupted one...
FMI have tools that we developers do not have. If your backup is corrupt to, I would send it to FMI.
Have you tried to use the database as a ODBC to try to extract data out of it?
ODBC? How can i do that?
I have a clean backup i am looking to extract data from corrupted file and sent them in it.
If you install the FileMaker ODBC driver you might be able to extract data out of your database
I still dont know if you will be able to get into your data, but you can always try it out. Still recommend you to send your file to FileMaker
