iFolder 1.0.3 and Passphrase Recovery

We are running NetWare 6.0 SP5 and are running the default install of iFolder, version 1.0.3. We have a machine that was reformatted recently and the intern figured all the information was stored safely in the iFolder account since the user was good about logging in every day.

The problem is that the data is too safely stored. At some point the user enabled encryption on the iFolder (Blowfish) and now we can't re-download the data without a passphrase, which he of course cannot remember.

Everything I'm reading looks like you cannot do passphrase recovery unless you are on 2.x, and even then only if you have it enabled before a user sets a passphrase.

Can someone confirm this? Are we out of luck or are there any secret tricks to getting this data back?

As far as I remember is that passphrase recovery got introduced in 2.x
for the reason you describe. If you don't know the passphrase its time
to cry
