Once a password has been set for a backup archive, it can not be retrieved if lost or forgotten

This article applies to:

  • All Acronis products


If a password has been set for a backup archive and is now lost or forgotten, then there is no way to retrieve or disable it.

It is not possible to restore such backup archive or extract files from it.
