Outlook Accounts Password Viewer

You can extract the Outlook accounts information of the current user, from external hard drive plugged to your computer, and from remote computer on your network.

You can use this tool on any version of Windows, starting from Windows XP and up to Windows 11, with any version of Outlook starting from Outlook 2007 and up to Outlook 2019.

You can download the new OutlookAccountsView tool from this Web page.

Some of the password-recovery tool on NirSoft Web site allows you to decrypt passwords stored on external hard drive plugged to your computer.
If the passwords are encrypted with the DPAPI (Data Protection API) system, you may need to type your login password, because the login password is used
to decrypt the encryption key, and without the login password it’s impossible to recover the passwords instantly.

However, if you login with your Microsoft account (On Windows 10 and Windows 11), the login password is not used anymore.
Instead of the login password, Microsoft generates a random 44-characters password for your Microsoft account, and this password is used in the DPAPI encryption process instead of the login password.

So if you want to recover from external drive the DPAPI passwords created under Microsoft account , you have to provide the random password generated for your Microsoft account instead of the login password.
You can get this random password by using the new MadPassExt tool.

MadPassExt  - Microsoft Account DPAPI Password Extractor

The new MadPassExt tool

The MadPassExt tool decrypts the cache file of your Microsoft account, located under C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\CloudAPCache\MicrosoftAccount ,
and extracts the randomly generated password needed to decrypt DPAPI-encrypted passwords stored on external drive.
This cache file is created when you login into Windows 10 and Windows 11 with your Microsoft account.

In order to decrypt the Microsoft account cache file, you have to provide the actual login password of your Microsoft account.

The new MadPassExt tool is available to download from this Web page.

The new version of the SearchMyFiles tool (v3.15) allows you to easily search empty folders on your system.
In order to search empty folders with the SearchMyFiles tool, follow the instructions below:

  1. Click the ‘Reset To Default’ button to ensure that all files are scanned.
  2. Type the base folder to search.
  3. Choose ‘Summary Mode’ in the Search Mode combo-box, and then in the nearby combo-box choose one of the following options: ‘Only folders with zero files and subfolders’ or ‘Only folders with zero files’. If you choose the first option, only completely empty folders without files or folders will be displayed. If you choose the second option, SearchMyFiles will also display folders with subfolders, as long as the folder and all its subfolders are empty from files.

Search Options: Empty Folders

After the search of empty folders is completed, you can optionally delete these empty folders by using the ‘Delete Selected Empty Folders’ option.
But before you start to use the delete feature, read this warning: Although deleting an empty folder is relatively a safe action, it’s possible that delete of empty folders will cause a significant problem (For example: a software that expects a specific directory structure, and doesn’t work properly without it).
So when you choose to delete empty folders, it’s your responsibility to check every empty folder you want to delete and ensure it’s ok to delete. It’s also recommended to export the empty directories list to a file, so if there is a problem after the empty folders deletion, you’ll be able to create again the deleted empty folders.
