I'm doing a little spring cleaning on old PCs and hard drives. When I was a kid I made a bunch of different "EA", Steam, Xbox GFW, Amazon, and newegg accounts over the years, often with their own matching Roadrunner (!!!) email addy.
Of course over time I've forgotten my passwords, or the email used, or even the screen name of some of these accounts. Not too much worry, thanks to how MSRPs of games tank, I've rebought or received (PS+, XBLGold) most of the game purchases I lost.
But it would be nice to recover some ones, to get access to no longer for sale items, or things like my achievement score.
So, I have an old hard drive. On it I had installed things like Steam, EA (pre origin rebranding) DM, and Games For Windows, all logged in with those emails and passes I forgot.
By plugging in the external HDD via USB, I was able to recover things like my Mass Effect 2 save, my Elder Scrolls characters and installed mods, screenshots, in addition to my old MP3 rips and vacation photos.
As a Mac user nowadays, I know that apple stores logins for Apps/Programs in the same sort of chart it stores Safari web logins.
I'm wondering if there's an .ini file somewhere, either made by the program itself, or a mass one Windows makes for all your software, that I could open and read what my email and passes were for stuff like Steam and "Origin".
Muchos thanks for any help!
