- shouldn't have given you write access to his production server
- should have a backup
That are his 2 faults.
Yours are obvious.
So sharing the costs would be reasonable. I'd start with www.lostpassword.com. Their Lite version is $65. That's $32.50 for each of you two.
Please help!! I am taking night classes trying to get a CS degree a friend of mine at work gave me a copy of an excel file to use as an example that he had written for low level project risk management. While I was playing with the code I changed the password. I forgot the password. Wouldn't have been a big deal but without thinking I "gave" him the file back by returning the copy that I had to his production server. With me forgetting the password he is screwed. I asked him if had a development copy, he told me when he has to make revisions he copies down the production copy and works from that. I was the only person he gave access to the file so it?s pretty obvious who screwed it up... I'm a student and don't have the cash to buy one of these password crackers is there anyone who would be able to open it if I emailed them the file? my email is firstname.lastname@example.org
