Hello Apple community,

The .DMG was created and encrypted by disk utility on Mac OS El Capitan, I don't have access to previous Mac, and now when I'm trying to open the file on MacOS Mojave the system replies with wrong password.

Also gave the read/write permissions to connected drive (and .dmg)

That's not about keyboard settings, caps lock, another language, etc , the file was working well all time, it's not also corrupted, I have another (same) backup files and getting this issue.

Also checked on Windows 10 by DMG Extractor software.

After the small research I found:

Allan Eckert: 10.7 uses a different encryption method then 10.6. So the Mac running 10.7 is unable to decrypt the .dmg for you.

Is this a real reason?

Do I need to find same model Mac with El Capitan OS to have it finally decrypted?

Please help me find a solution, the file contains very important information for me.

Thank you in advance

DMG files contain compressed software installers that are used in the distribution and installation of applications in macOS. The files replaced IMG files when Mac OS X was released in 2001 and are still commonly used today. macOS users download DMG files from the Internet, then double-click them to begin the installation of a program. When a DMG file is opened, it mounts a virtual disk on the desktop to install the program.

Typically, Windows users won't encounter DMG files since they are specific to Macs. However, File Viewer Plus can be used to extract the contents of a DMG file, much like a ZIP archive. This feature is especially useful for anyone looking to examine or modify the contents of a DMG file.
