Without the password, you cannot gain access to the encrypted data, as that is the purpose of encryption.

If you have told no one else your password, you will have to remember it.

Try typing on the keyboard without thinking about it. Sometimes you finger muscles will remember the password ('muscle memory').

Or think up a lot of new passwords. This might jog your memory of the proper password.
