If you can remember some characters of your password (or exclude some chars for sure) and its not too long, you can try to bruteforce with btcrecover (https://github.com/gurnec/btcrecover).
You'll find more information about the token file, which is used to generate possible passwords, here: https://github.com/gurnec/btcrecover/blob/master/TUTORIAL.md#quick-start.
To run this script you will need to install python (https://www.python.org/downloads/).

Unfortunately no one knows why you sent coins to yourself.
This might be a child-pays-for-parent. But since you didn't touch your wallet for quite a long time i don't think thats the case because there weren't any fee problems in the early stage of BTC.

Thanks I have looked into this program And installed python But This is way over my head. I have found this

https://walletdatrecovery.com/

Do you think this is legitimate

I do now what my password should be. I only wanted acess so I could trade in a few other coins


Years ago I mined PPC , Freicoin And a coin that scammed me royally Benjamins . The only thing that is worth something is btc I have 0.049 So very little but Its all i have. And if wallet unlocked that should give me bitcoin gold and cash

Thanks for your help

It's hard to say if anything is legit, but I don't know this one. Which means I would for sure not trust it.

If you're looking for a trusted site, see https://walletrecoveryservices.com/ , but they're also overwhelmed with work at the moment.
