How to recover password from Password-Protected Excel Workbook

Today, very often we hear cases of phishing scams and data thefts. These issues have set tongues wagging all over the world. Illicit copying or theft of your confidential information by any on-line predator can make you restless and may even give you nightmares. Even when we have so many alternative solutions available to implement data safety and security, people are usually inclined to follow the same old tradition of setting passwords. They set passwords to the important spreadsheets containing company information, power-point presentations, database files etc. But what if they forget these powerpoint or Excel passwords. Perhaps, this is considered as the simplest way of preventing your data from being accidentally or intentionally modified by someone. But people tend to set new passwords every time. As a result, they forget these passwords and make their important files inaccessible.
Suppose, you work on an excel spreadsheet everyday and store all the information related to company, its employees, vendors, customers etc. in that file. To protect it against any unauthorized access, one day you set a password to this file. But the very next day when you try to access it, you come to know that you have forgotten your password. This may prevent you from accessing the valuable information stored in this file. In such circumstances, you need to go for MS Excel password recovery through a reliable third party utility.
Nowadays, a number of password recovery software are available. These software provide various parameters to narrow down the search for the lost or forgotten password. They perform Excel password recovery by employing a brute-force mechanism and maintaining an in-built dictionary that provides more precision in tracking the lost password.
