Hello Flint.

Unfortunately, if you do not know the password you cannot open an encrypted file. That is what AxCrypt is made for!

Please check the FAQ at https://www.axcrypt.net/support/faq/ for more information.

That being said, as you say, if you know most of the password you might actually be able to find it by searching for variants. We have a software that does this to a limited extent, limited in the sense that the richness of expression for describing the variations to try is limited.

You can download the most recent version here: https://account.axcrypt.net/Download/AxBruteForce.exe and there is a description of how to use it here: https://www.axcrypt.net/axcrypt-brute-force/ .

Please note that we cannot provide support beyond this.
