According to the screenshots, it supports only English letters.
This is a very big minus. The World is full of languages, on which passwords can be typed. For example, from German: ü ö ä, in Spanish there is the letter Ñ, Greek, Turkish: Ç ç Ğ ğ Ö ö Ş ş.
In the given case, I exclude the Russian language (it does not count).

Such paid programs should also be online.
Many do not is no possibility to buy a very powerful computer, there is no possibility to wait a whole month (after all, a person does not remember in which language he wrote the password in his native language or in English).

Dimma, to provide an online server or farm of servers that could be used by subscribers to brute-force passwords on anything would likely result in SLOWER try rate than using your own dedicated PC since it could be shared by thousands of people grinding the whole process to a near halt! First things first, maximize the local processing capabilities of the local machine, include multi-core AND simultaneous GPU multicore processing. If you then want to rent/lease a server and dedicate it solely to your own brute forcing of a password then you might manage a slightly better speed.

Another optimization would be segmented brute forcing where different machines are dynamically allocated different passphrase search ranges and each machine subdivides their allotted passphrase ranges for each processing core to maximize possible processing available.

I can't install the program on my Windows 7 computer.

The installation crashes with the following information:

C:\Users\Bob\AppData\Local\Temp\WERE5C3.tmp.WERInternalMetadata.xml
C:\Users\Bob\AppData\Local\Temp\WER120.tmp.appcompat.txt
C:\Users\Bob\AppData\Local\Temp\WER21B.tmp.mdmp

Bob, they are filenames *containing* information regarding the crash, and no information regarding why the crash occurred can be gleemed simply from posting the filenames.

I have used PDFKey Pro for five years. It has never failed to unlock a password-protected pdf file, leaving the original file intact and producing an _unlocked.pdf copy. For me it has been worth its $25 price.

I did protect a PDF:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/72olbp07sw5ohh9/Protected-Short_FixingAFlatTire.pdf?dl=0
To find a user password it took 1 minute:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/rm7hmvqbiyxj4jo/KortWW.png?dl=0
The owner password will take much longer.
The the folder came a new file PdfPasswordStorage.txt with the found passwords

This is just a glorified brute force password cracker. The limitations are your machine. The more complex the password, the longer it will take, including YEARS.

from my point of view it would be better if this could load all the pdf files in a folder and pre-scan them to show which have ANY form of password protection... It's taking ages finding ANY pdf files that have any form of protection all, including downloaded utility bills, official terms and conditions etc, one file at a time!

Its easy to create your own PDF with a password though. Why would you want to scan a folder to find password-ed ones?

Reply   |   Comment by Chris Locke (CS Computer Services)  –  11 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Chris Locke (CS Computer Services), why ? because I wanted to test it in a real life situation with a real password protected file. The program is not intended to play with files you just created...

Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  11 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Aah, it sounded like you were struggling to test the program with a password-protected PDF and you couldn't find one.

.
Why TWO buttons at the bottom of the user interface that pop ups [ Start decryption process ]?

Fist button says [ Remove PDF ] ( does this really just take a highlighted PDF file out of the list above ? )

The second says [ Decrypt ]

Also, rather than 'decrypt', please change to 'find password' or 'remove password'.

So, does this save a password-free file, or just tell you the password for you to try?

Then change to [ Find password(s) ].

Thanks.

Does it work with accented letters like æ or β?

Man, the captcha makes me sick...

Reply   |   Comment by papin  –  11 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+11)

papin, not from the selections shown in the program. There is no custom character input box that would allow accented letters or other odd characters that might still be legal password characters.

I ran the program on a pdf, the password I know is 8 capital letters, after 3 hours nothing, I turned it off

George James Ducas, theoretically, this application is capable of calculating the only and correct password. The most important thing I should boost is the speed of calculation.

Reply   |   Comment by support@pdfpasswordrecover.com  –  11 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-10)

support@pdfpasswordrecover.com, I am running a new computer with i7 and 64 bit, you are right, needs a faster calculating approach, perhaps running several sequences simultaneously? i wish i could help, but it would help to be faster

Reply   |   Comment by George James Ducas  –  11 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+6)

support@pdfpasswordrecover.com, may i suggest you optimise the decryption testing routines in processor specific assembly language, wheither CPU or GPU and try and engineer it so the code loops and data segment that is test decrypted should reside within the level 1 caches for as long as possible and if that fails then level 2 cache, do not code the grunt work using any .NET framework, use .NET for the GUI if you must but not for any number crunching!

If your password is one character, then there are 26 possible combinations. If your password is two characters, then there are 26x26 combinations - 676. This goes up exponentially, so for a ten character password, thats 26x26x26x26x26x26x26x26x26x26... 141,167,095,653,376 combinations. Yes, its going to take a while to test all those. Thats assuming you use just upper or lower case. If you used both, then its 52x52x52x52.... etc. With 15 'additional' symbols (£$%&, etc) thats 67x67x67x67x67.... etc. 1.822e+18 - so 1 with 18 zeroes. Thats gonna take a while.

Reply   |   Comment by Chris Locke (CS Computer Services)  –  11 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+19)

Chris Locke (CS Computer Services), Correct. This application will try all combinations of passwords and get the correct one.

Reply   |   Comment by support@pdfpasswordrecover.com  –  11 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

But can you resume from a point? If the program has been running for 3 weeks, then Windows 10 decides to reboot to install necessary updates, would you have to start at the beginning? That would be a pain...

Unless your user password is 5 characters or less and has no special characters, brute force recovery will take forever on a typical user machine.

Owner password defeat is quite simple, as it doesn't even require guessing since the password mechanism is flawed, it is easily broken.

Of course this is just for when you forget your own password.

Of course. :)

And of course- if the password is short. If you're password is about 10 signs or more, and if it includes capital letters, numbers, spaces and special signs- the password could be recovered for your grandkids, or some of the other generations...

rww, this application won't remove the password of your PDF files, but it enables you recover or find the password of any PDF file.

Reply   |   Comment by support@pdfpasswordrecover.com  –  11 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

rww,

I have used another of those programs, Wow Tron PDF Restriction Remover (obtained here) for a legitimate application. I own software books with CD-ROMs. Big fat books, complete with screenshots, tables and notes. The pdf of the book is on the CD, and I read alternatively the paper books and the ebook.

However, some of those pdfs are write-protected. This means I cannot annotate the ebook with my own comments and links. Imagine buying a paper book and not being allowed to write in the margins ! This is unacceptable for a technical book. It dramatically reduces its learning ability.

Wow Tron PDF Restriction Remover allowed me full legitimate use of those books I have bought. And it does not try to brute-force the passwords : it just removes them. Instantly.

Reply   |   Comment by Clairvaux  –  11 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+16)

Josef, not the program itself. What I was trying to say is that if the password is long and strong enough- there will be so many possible combinations, so on regular (home) computer it will take years to check all the possible combinations. Not the progra, the process could be slow.

Of course- if the password is "1234", or "abcd"- it is possible. But if the password is "i*&&8VbJiw@d8y0g00h4"- good luck to your grandson, if you are young enough and if your computer can last enough to wait for your grandson. :)
