Windows Password Recovery - search DPAPI blobs



The DPAPI blob search dialog is rather trivial. All you need to specify is the source folder, which the program would search for DPAPI blobs, and the target folder, where found blobs are to be stored. The program searches for both binary and text blobs.

Looking for DPAPI blobs

Example of a path, where you can find files, containing binary DPAPI blobs:
ะก:\Users\John\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Credentials

Example of a path, where you can find files, containing textual DPAPI blobs:
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Wlansvc
 

Keep in mind that if you want to search for blobs in current user's registry or in the Active Directory database, you should first back up the files to a separate directory.
