    1) You posted this in the OSX 10.3 and earlier forum.  If you are using a MacBook Air you need to post in the correct forum for your operating system.

     

    2) This is a Filevault style protection?  If so, there is no way short of a supercomputer to recover your password.  It is secure so nobody can recover it, not even you.
