Recovering passwords

If the user needs to recover the password used to generate a Security BOX SmartFILE-encrypted file, this password can be shown in the file properties (via the Stormshield Data Security tab). To run this function, you need:

  • Stormshield Data File and Security BOX SmartFILE,
  • To be logged in to SDS Enterprise using the user account that was used for the file encryption. You cannot recover the password with another SDS Enterprise account (including recovery accounts) or using Security BOX SmartFILE.

  • Click on Show password to see the password.
