So first of all I've a software which basically locks/encrypts a folder with a given password. Afterwards it's almost impossible to open the folder without entering the password through the software.
I locked some of my much needed files and accidently forgot the password.
So my question is, is it possible to retrive the hash from the encrypted folder? I'm planning to brute-force if it's possible.
If it's not, then should I reverse engineer the software to open the encrypted folder without entering the password?
What other possible options do I have?
