    On a serious note, I'm guessing you made an encrypted backup and now it's asking for your password. Keep in mind this will be a separate password from the one you typically use for iTunes. If this is the case then you will definitely need the password and there is no way to restore without it.

    Not the best way out but try changing your password and try again.

    And why I don't use encryption. Just something else to go wrong.
