what windows you running? if you have say vista it's a doddle to go find your mt4 folders and rescue the files, I know not how easy it is on windows 7?

windows 8 is a bit of a faf but navigation goes something like -

C:\Users\"you"\AppData\Roaming\MetaQuotes\Terminal

if you get to the terminal folder, click on each folder in there and see what you have left to save, once you have a new account set up just drop the saved files into your new mt4, example template files go into the new account templates folder.
appreciate the effort. but like it says in the title the only thing i lost is my account password which embodies over a year long hard work and while not real - it has some badass swing trades open where prices has not returned in months. and it is older than my real account where i am far from repeating similar success. It was an oversight that i did not change the master password while i had the chance.

Ok, one more go...follow the steps that i listed above until you get to the screenshot below. scroll down until you see metatrader, then click on it, then click on "show"...This will show your password !!

P.S. Thats a generic screenshot, dont click on the cross that the arrow points to, that will delete your password, ( the arrow was already on )
