Advanced Intuit Password Recovery – The new release of the Advanced Intuit Password Recovery tool, developed by Elcomsoft, will now work with versions 4-2004. The software was designed to allow businesses to continue to use their valuable data when documents’ passwords are lost accidentally or intentionally. From the accountant’s standpoint, this tool is invaluable to quickly disclose what version of QuickBooks is being used. In addition, it can be used to eliminate wasted time trying to find the password and/or contact the client to obtain the password. It is also a useful tool when the client forgets, or the bookkeeper leaves without disclosing, the passwords on the QuickBooks files.The tool is available for purchase at $60 and future releases are available at no charge.If you have previously purchased the tool, the new release is available for download.

Editorial Note: The Cost of the software has increased to $99 but updates to work with future QuickBooks versions continue to be free.

QData Viewer – There is a new release for QData Viewer that can be downloaded. If you have a previous version of QData Viewer installed on your computer, uninstall it, delete the folder, then install the new release for best results.
