Access Password Retrieval Lite is a small program used to recover passwords to Microsoft Access databases (.MDB). The program is incredibly easy to use thanks to the password recovery wizard that allows you to either choose a single database to recover its password, or to select any partition or folder on your computer so the program searches through it and all possible sub-folders for all .MDB files and shows their passwords on the run. The program is different from many other password recovery programs in that it attempts to try every possible password combination (brute-force attacks) or trying common passwords (dictionary attacks), as it utilizes a special technique to efficiently and immediately recover the database password and it allows you to copy the recovered password to your Microsoft Windows clipboard. One of the weaknesses of this program is that it doesn't work with databases created using recent Microsoft Access versions, starting from 2007. Another weakness is that it also doesn't recover workgroup user level passwords.
