Will password reset make encrypted libraries unaccessible for ever?

A user has some libraries encrypted and lost his password. Will he still be able to access the encrypted libraries when I reset his password or are the encrypted libraries lost forever?

Did he lost the password for the encrypted library or for his account? Resetting the account pw has no effect to the encrypted library, so it’s save to do.

He lost the account pwd and used the same pwd for encryption.

I understand now he still we be able to access the encrypted data when the account pwd is reset. BUT - in order to get access he has to remember the encryption pwd - which he actually lost :frowning:

Bad luck for him …

Yes he needs to use the old password to reset the password. If he didn’t sync the files anywhere else, the data would not be recovered… He should use something like keepass to keep the password…
