You will never get that password back if you forgot it. You'll need to make a new backup with a new password.

Apple getting worse I hate them f*cking apple
They make the easiest backup solution of any phone manufacturer. I fail to see where the hate is. Just don't forget your password to an encrypted backup.


You have to download them from iTunes. Since app splitting was introduced they dont sync over anymore.
Well it does restore the apps ... but it re-downloads them. So, at the very least, you don't have to go looking for them again.

I did this and resigned myself that whenever a device failure arose or I got a new phone that I would just have to set it as new and lose stuff (I sync my photos through Dropbox, so wouldn't lose those). Luckily for me about 6 months after this happened I found my password written on a piece of paper when I was cleaning out my desk! So now I'm back in business.

But otherwise, if you've lost the password, you are SOL for unencrypting your backup.

In this country Internet bandwidth very expensive
