Password recovery from backup file in 6.xx versions

Tue Jun 30, 2015 7:48 am

How can I recover password from my backup file (taken from ROS 6.28). Most of the sites which can show password from backup file donot work any more with these new backup files.

Is there any way I can get the password back from my backup file ?

The new RouterOS versions encrypt the backup file. Without RouterOS password, it is impossible to decrypt it.

Hi Normis,

My backup file was not encrypted. How can I extract admin password?

I am afraid that mikrotik will not provide such information.
