Export Froze, now asks for password

I was exporting/backing up my database and my machine froze. I had to force quit. Now the database will not open without a password, which I do not remember ever enabling. How an either find out my password or access my database, again? Thank you.

It’s likely that the database and/or a .plist file was damaged during the process of writing data to disk, perhaps as a result of the force quit.

Please send a message to Support, including some more information. What kind of export/backup? Which version of the application are you running? How much free hard drive space do you have? Which version of OS X?

If there’s a crash log at ~/Library/Logs/CrashReporter/ please attach it.

We can walk you through recovery of at least the state of the database as of the most recent good internal backup.
