When I download my database from a website (refworks.com) to backup on my computer, it saves the database as a password protected zip file although I have not set a password. So, I cannot access my backup file even though its there. Does anyone know whay this is happening and what the solution could be. Any help is highly appreciated.

Didn't type password still asking password?

In that case, there must be default password to unlock zip file. Please read instruction from downloaded file. Normally this should be their name or domain name. I tried to find from their website but I had to login there so I give up.

By the way, why don't try same password that you use to login to their site?

Thanks Puter. I emailed the helpline, and apparently they put a default password so that I can upload my file to their website again if the database gets lost but I can't make any changes in it on my computer. Ridiculous!!
