What is unclear to me is--and as mentioned in the subject, I know nothing about this stuff--if I am pretty sure I know part of the password, can the rules be made to accommodate that? I know for instance that likely the e's are 3's and that it starts with "c" and may contain a specific word as well I noticed there are tools listed for cracking email accounts etc. I am not yet clear if John is even the right app for me. I have some cloud-based records that are in a password-protected site. I can get in but the records are 256-bit encrypted. I need to try to crack THAT second password but I know kind of where to start (so I don't need "as much" of a dictionary attack, if that makes sense). This is stuff related to my divorce, by the way so it is quite important. I had too much wine when I last accessed them and despite having a hint, which helps, I can't quote get there. Yes, I know I am a dumbass. I have learned a lesson here. I would really appreciate any advice. I will continue to read about it and see if I gain a better understanding. Thanks very much.
