After reading this thredhttps://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=85495.0
there looks to be a way of cracking the password or finding out what I have set it to. Thing is, I don't have linux.
I know what I think the password should be. I've tried every variation. Hell, I am still strying - even though there's only 44 coins in there it's still my money.
Just wondering if anyone can assist me. Thanks
Sorry, I can't help you with any brute force scripts, but hopefully someone that can help will be along shortly.
I just wanted to mention that if you entered the password by copying and pasting from notepad when you first encrypted the wallet, and you haven't modified the entry in notepad since, then the most common cause of a "mis-typed" password in that particular situation is that you didn't realize that you didn't have the entire
password selected when you did your copy. Possibly you were missing the first few (or last few, or both) characters of the password in your selection.
If you haven't done so yet, I'd try leaving off the first character, then try again leaving off the first 2 characters, and so on until you've left off most of the password. If none of those work, start over leaving off the last character, etc.
Unfortunately, the next most common cause would be that you had something else in your clipboard at the time and didn't realize it. (i.e. you had recently copied something then selected your password in notepad and forgot to hit "copy", so what you pasted into the password isn't what you thought.) Guessing that password would involve trying to remember what else you might have been copy/pasting around that time. Unless what was in your clipboard was pretty small or you could come up with a pretty close guess, brute forcing that password would be unlikely.
