This practical software tool specializes in locating password-protected documents around your drives, for whatever reason you need them. It can analyze many types of file formats, such as Microsoft Word, Excel, Access, PowerPoint, Zip archives, as well as OpenOffice, WordPerfect and QuattroPro files.
It also allows you to select where exactly to look for these files.
The program is very easy to use and intuitive. On the first screen you need to select the location where you want the program to look for protected files. You can choose among several predefined frequent locations, such as the entire C drive, the My Documents folder, all local hard drives, or you can also specify a custom location. Additionally, you can select the types of documents to look for among all the supported formats. Once you have provided that information, you can start the search process.
When the lookup finishes, the program displays the results window, where you can see the list of all the password-protected documents found, complete with their document type, password type, file size, full path, etc. From here you can copy these results to your clipboard, open the documents directly, or export them to another file. This last option is done in a separate window, where you can select the file format (plain text, CSV, HTML, and XML are available) and the name and location for the new file.
To sum up, this program will be very helpful to you whenever you need to locate one or all of your password-protected documents in a specific folder or on an entire disk, as it will save you a lot of time.
