I have only saved the UTC file generated from myetherwallet and after losing data from my laptop i lost the document where i had my password and private key. Can i recover my account now ?


No, the file you have contains your private key, but it's encrypted with a password. If you no longer have that password, you can't decrypt it.

  • Is there a program for brute force ? i remember words but not the exact order – Andrew Zacharakis Jan 13 '18 at 23:30
  • There almost certainly are, but I'm not familiar with any, sorry. – user19510 Jan 13 '18 at 23:31

By UTC file, do you mean the JSON keystore file? It should follow roughly this format.

You can attempt to brute force your password with pyethrecover.
