I backed up my data using Fbackup with standard compression, to an external disk. My computer crashed and I've reconnected the external disk - The archive is there and I can see the files inside it but when I try to restore it does the file structure then prompts for a password when it starts to do the files. I've put in the password that I used but it says it's incorrect. Have tried other combinations of things, for example, reversing the upper and lower case letters but still nothing. I also tried reinstalling Fbackup to see if I could look at the properties of the .fkc file, which I can. Won't accept the password when I try to change it in the file properties either. Only thing I can see that's out of place is the date of the last backup in Fbackup is shown as 12/30/1899. Any ideas?

Hi,


The password is the one which was set up. You need to remember the correct password.

Well I now have two separate backups which are both not accepting the password I'm putting in - Is it possible that the backup can or the password can get corrupted?

Hi,


That is not possible.
