Unfortunately, by the time I'd realized this, I'd already zeroed-out the drives on my old computer, so I couldn't go back and see what the password was. I now have a 550GB sparsebundle sitting on the NAS that I cannot open, because I have no idea what the password is (it's nothing I normally use - I imagine the 'hint' i cannot see would've helped). I purchased John Pro for the Mac and cannot figure out how to get the hash from the dmg file and then how to start trying to find the password. I consider myself very computer-saavy but this one's a bit much for me. If anyone has advice on how to get started, I would greatly appreciate it! > > JtR Pro can't crack a dmg afaik.

I did reach out to the guys mentioned in the article (Stricture) but haven't heard back yet. This is sort of the digital version of your house burning down! Hope someone can help out.
