1.lost password to password-protected personal folder

My assistant sent me a password-protected .pst file that opens without 
requiring entry of a password on her computer. However, a password is 
required to open the file on my computer. Is there a way for her to retrieve 
the lost password on her computer? If not, is there a way to transfer the 
data to another, non-password protected .pst file?

Thanks in advance for any recommendations.

5.Outlook Password Protected PST Folder

I created my first PST folder over a year ago, I must have 
thought it was asking for my network password, because it 
is password protected and I do not know the password. 

This folder has all my emails that I have been saving for 
projects with customers. I really need it, and have no 
idea how to get it back without that password. It is 
impossisble to open now?

All suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!
