    Default Playbook restore encrypted file... Forgot password

    Backing up I stupidly encrypted the file and didn't write down the password. I was gone all day and now I can't remember the password. Am I just up poops creek??

    I had some irreplaceable photos... About 1000. I'm sick right now.

    Please help

    And again, the internet is not something you just dump something on. It's not a truck.

    It's a series of tubes.

    Knowing BB's security inclination, I think you may be screwed. Search those gray cells and figure out what you might have logically or illogically assigned as a password. Pet, wife, husband, girl/boyfriend, kid, address, anything.....

    Good luck

    No way to sideload it as you need the password to install it, so without it your out of luck, so try and rememebrr it.

    so after two hours+ with blackberry, it wasn't the password. the whole file was corrupted. 1000 photos and 25+ videos - gone. long story short, back up manually. dont use the DM. Open up the pb's drive and manually remove the files. don't trust the software!!!!

    Sorry about that. I generally back up UNIQUE files such as photos, video, voice notes and other stuff unique to the pb MANUALLY. Rarely has DM worked for a full backup anyway.

    I'm guessing you can't. What's the point of a password if you could? You should be able to back up any media before you have to wipe, though. Just connect to your PB through wifi from your PC while the PB is on the password screen, and manually copy any files you want to keep to your PC.
