    There is no way to restore the files unless you input the right password. You have no choice but try the passwords you could think up. Or use password breaker programs to do that. However, it will take time.

    Hello, what password breaker software will you recommend? I tried many tools to unlock my iTunes but not succeed.

    When you search online, there is a couple of them and those programs look almost the same. However, the original one is this:

    Yes, once you forget the iTunes backup password, you can only unlock it by entering the correct password. Have you checked the Keychain? Like this, on your Mac, open Applications > Utilities > Keychain Access.
