This is ideal for installing Linux distros. Has worked flawlessly so far. Can't say the same for similar apps.

I used this program successfully to get Ubuntu set up on an old Mac.

WebBrowserPassView v1.86

  • 394KB (uncompressed)

  • Suggested by guinness

WebBrowserPassView is a password recovery tool that reveals the passwords stored by Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, SeaMonkey, Chromium, Google Chrome, Safari, Vivaldi and Yandex Web browser. This tool can be used to recover your lost/forgotten password of any website, including popular Web sites, like Facebook, Yahoo, Google, and GMail, as long as the password is stored by your Web Browser.

Currently, WebBrowserPassView cannot retrieve the passwords if they are encrypted with a master password.

To work with Chrome and Opera portable versions, go to 'options' and set the location of the portable browser folder. Select the user data folder in Chrome, and wand.dat for Opera. (Thanks to user "deer".)

System Requirements: Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10

  • Added 'Quick Filter' feature (View -> Use Quick Filter or Ctrl+Q). When it's turned on, you can type a string in the text-box added under the toolbar and WebBrowserPassView will instantly filter the passwords table, showing only lines that contain the string you typed.

Portable browser e.g. Firefox's passwords can be viewed by manually setting Options->Advanced Options:
For example,
Firefox Profile=D:\Firefox\Data\profile
Firefox Installation=D:\Firefox\App\Firefox

PasswordFox v1.58 Updated

billon on 6 Nov 2017
  • 123KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 5 Nov 2017
  • Suggested by JohnW

PasswordFox is a small password recovery tool that allows you to view user names and passwords stored by the Mozilla Firefox Web browser. By default, PasswordFox displays the passwords stored in your current profile, but you can easily look at the passwords of any other Firefox profile. For each password entry, the following information is displayed: Record Index, Web Site, User Name, Password, User Name Field, Password Field and the Signons filename.

If a "master" password has been set, this must be entered before information can be viewed.

A 64-bit version is available (for use with Firefox 64-bit and Waterfox).

This has been flagged as malware by AVG and other programs.

AdrianK_IT on 2012-05-05 13:30

This is one of the NirSoft utilities, and trustworthy. It is flagged as malware as it clearly can be used for malicious reasons ie extract passwords for nefarious purposes. However, it can also be used for good reasons ie extract passwords for recovery purposes etc!
I have learnt to temporarily disable 'real time protection' in AV software when downloading/moving/using these utilities.
I also use them as a simple test of AV software effectiveness; if it doesn't pick up these utilities as potentially malicious, then the AV software is clearly useless!

anyone got this working together with firefox portable? i read that it is possible when pointing to the profile folder but it just fails here.

TestDisk is a powerful drive and data recovery software that is designed to help recover lost partitions and/or make non-booting disks bootable again. This can be caused by faulty software, certain types of viruses, or of course human error (such as accidentally deleting your partition table).

The program is cross-platform with recovery tools for a long list file systems and includes the also-portable recovery software PhotoRec.

Note: Use with caution; it's recommended that you read the documentation and take your time. The software can easily made dramatic and difficult-to-reverse system modifications.

How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch testdisk_win.exe.

@bzl333: TestDisk is a multi-platform tool, so it has to speak some kind of computing Esperanto -- Linux users would be as puzzled as you are if it was the other way around... so you're right, it's an expert tool, as noted above.

I'm sure this program is fantastic, if I can only figure out how to use it.

CyberShredder v1.12

webfork on 20 Dec 2016
  • 490KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 20 Sep 2008
  • Suggested by M. Maltbia

CyberShredder is an easy to use, drag-and-drop way to delete files and folders from your computer permanently. While normal file deletion remove a file's directory entry and allocation table information, the actual disk clusters that contained the file's data remains intact on your hard disk and can be recovered. CyberShredder overwrites the space occupied from a file with random data and then erases the file, so recovery tools cannot recover it.

Although the "very quick" shred should be more than adequate for most users, there are multi-pass methods available that overwrite the file multiple times.

Warning: Some users have reported issues when wiping directories with non-English characters in them.

System Requirements: Win95 / Win98 / WinME / WinNT / Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: No
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch CyberShredder.exe.
What's new?
  • Quicker abort, abandons operation even at the end of a file operation.
  • File operation progress gauge, shows progress of each file operation (pass).
  • Renames file multiple (26) times, not just once.
  • Remembers form position.

@webfork. Sorry, only just saw this post. I don`t have a copy of that folder anymore as I`ve moved to a new laptop. Sorry.

Herki on 2014-06-18 12:57

I had precisely the same issue as hamasaki above - tried to drag and drop a folder that contained asian characters in its name and, to my horror, found Cybershredder began a rampage through a completely unrelated area of my hard drive.

From what I can tell, and this tallies with hamasaki's experience *if* he had placed the cybershredder.exe in 'program files', the glitch redirects the shred request to contents of the the folder one level above the folder in which cybershredder.exe is placed.

No idea why this happens, but be warned!
