Password for Outloook .pst files?

Due to an abortive 1903 Windows 10 update I had to re install a system image from 5 days ago.

Everything appeared to go fine but I have just found out that my contacts list in Outlook has disappeared.

I have a recent copy of the Contacts .pst file but every time I try to import it I get a dialogue box asking for a password, I am 100% certain I never password protected this file and can't find any way apart from 3rd party apps to recover/change/remove it.

Any suggestions?

Jim.

If your email provider is gmail or something like outlook you maybe able to recover your address book from online, this is what i did when i lost mine for gmail.

Another than that try the password or pst repair tool.

Managed to sort it, had to use a password recover app, really annoying that I never password protected the file in the first place and the password I recovered is nothing I would have ever used.

Still, all sorted and a long overdue clean up of the contacts folder done at the same time.

Believe it or not it's called Outlook Password Recovery, from Intelore.
