Password Keeper - Forgotten Password

I have forgotten my password for "Password Keeper".  I have used 7 of my 10 tries at this point and have made a backup copy.  If can't figure it out prior to the 10th try and wipe out the data, can I restore the backup and continue to try and figure out the password?   Is there a way that RIM Support can extract the information from the application?

 

Thank you

Yes, you can restore the PK data to your device, from the PC backup:  How to use BlackBerry Desktop Software to restore data to a BlackBerry smartphone from a backup file...  and you will use the "select data" to restore to specifically only restore the PK data.

Nope, that would somewhat defeat the purpose of security of the device if there were a seekrit backdoor to the information.
