I'm in a mess here because I seem to have acquired a password and I don't know what it is. I can open this file but I can't change the password to something I know. What's happened and how can I fix it? Thanks!
try admin with no password
loggin' in automatically with admin account is looking for trouble.
Before doing anything make sure you have a backup copy of the file in case you end up wiping out the default password in the file options.
Yes, went back to an earlier Time Machine backup. Thank goodness for that! All sorted. Thanks to all.
Two things you could have done is check the Keychain option and then pull the password out of the keychain or go into the Security settings and change the password to whatever you want.
