I've lost my electrum wallet password and the seed. It would be nice if I would get half of the amount back. You could keep the rest.

Regenerate wallet with seed, it will not ask for password.

If you have seed, rename your electrum.dat file (for eg. Electrum.dat1) and open your client, then it will allow you to create a unencrypted wallet from seed.

If you still need help, PM me.
You'll need a rough idea about the password you used (which character set, approximate length, special characters, rough idea of the password).
Search for Revalins posts in this forum to get an idea how to do it yourself.
Otherwise it is a waste of time and not possible to brute-force an electrum wallet with a password longer than 6 characters in a reasonable time.
