My wish is a way to change an existing backup password. For example, using a command-line command such as "ChangeBackupPassword -OldPassword -NewPassword <BackupFile.mrimg>".

Background: after a password change the "Retention Rules" may not work anymore. Changing the old backup password to the new backup password should solve the Problem.

Just to be precise, as mentioned in your original thread, the element of retention rules that won't work in this scenario is consolidation operations within previous backup sets that used the old password.  The other retention rules, such as purging Diffs and Fulls, would continue to work.  But I can certainly see why having to perform manual consolidations in older sets after a password change in cases where the user doesn't wish to delete the backups that used the old password would be inconvenient.
