Passwod help for Money 2006 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I recently purchased a new computer and had the data transferred. What didn't transfer was the stored password for my Money 2006 files. I do not have the password written down. Is there any way to recover/change the password so that I can access my files?

  • If you remember nothing about the password, no. If you remembered the password was Pfeiffer followed by a number, or some such, maybe.

  • If you still have your old computer you can open your Money file on it and then remove the password.  Then save your Money.mny file on a flash drive, CD or DVD and copy it over to your new computer.  Then just double click on it to open it.

    If you don't have that option, then you will need to remember that password to get into your file.  Was it similar to other passwords that you have used?  Maybe a pet name?  Name plus zip code? etc.  Keep a pencil and paper by your bed in case you have an inspiration in the middle of the night.
