Hi Sugs,

We can send you a program that handles some situations. The problem is that it’s really hard to write a general purpose software that can interpret instructions like “a sentence with three or four numbers and special characters in the end“.

The software we have can do it to a certain degree, but it’s not entirely simple to use. We cannot give much support either, so what you should do is to encrypt a new file with a known password, and then try the brute force software out with a suitable pattern and verify that you understand the operation, and that it does find the (known) password as expected.

Then you can do the real search. Be prepared for a long wait if there are many possible combinations to try.

Please send an email to support@axcrypt.net and we can arrange for you to receive the software.
