Opening a Password protected sit. file?

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
Is there a way to unstuff this file, and use it? It says "TheFile.sit has been protected by a password. Enter the password to unstuff, or something. How can I open this?

    Enter the password at the prompt.

    Let me be a little more clear.

    I don't have the password.

    Then what business do you have opening it?

    Did you forget, or lose it?

    Well, the whole idea of a password protected file is that it can't be opened unless you have the password.

    Depending on the strength of the encryption, it could take you anywhere from a few months to a few centuries to crack it.

    Basically, the answer is no, you can't open it!

    (unless you want to get the RC5 teams of the world involved!)
