We have an application that extracts data from .dat files using TOPSCAN and loads the data into a warehouse. The programmer responsible for that application got...upset and changed the owner password for those files and then left. Obviously we now have a problem. We have about three years of history in those files that I am afraid we cannot recover. Our backup cycle is 14 days and we only extract data once a month. So you can see the situation. Is there a utility to reset/recover those passwords for someone with full administrator access to the system? The server base is W2K. We did get the passwords straight for the TPS files.
