Microsoft provides a utility called 'pst19upg.exe' that allows you to upgrade your PST of older version to that of later version. As one of the side effects of file conversion, the tool can remove password from a password-protected PST file. Thus, if you forget or lose the PST password, you can simply upgrade the file.
