SQL Password is quite easy to use.
- SQL Server may be configured in the "Windows Authentication" mode. In this case standard Windows security accounts are used and this program will not help you. SQL Password is able to recover passwords if SQL Server uses SQL authentication.
- If you decide to reset the password to a known one, SQL Password will modify the master.mdf file to change the password. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you backup master.mdf first!
