Default I forgot iPod backup password, how to restore my lost data?

My iPod deleted everything!!!? I forgot iPod backup password, how to restore my lost data?
I was editing/cropping a photo from my photo album and then my iPod crashed and turned off. This is a normal thing for my ipod. So I turned it back on and decide to delete that photo like I usually do. I unlocked my iPod and went to photos and it said that I had no photos or videos. I tried to see my photos through an app but it still wouldn't work.

So then I turned off my iPod and tried to turn it back on but then on my screen it came up with "connect to iTunes".

So I plugged it into my computer and then it came up with "You have no backup plan" which I don't. My silly mistake and I have learnt from that. BUT, it won't let me restart it either. I can't restore it or restart it or anything.

What do I do? Is it possible for me to use my iPod again? Is there another way to rescue my iPod? It would mean so much if someone could help me out.

I consult all my friends that own iPhone/iPod, they did not support me answers but I fortunately got solution from an IT friend. He recommended me use software iPhone backup password recovery to unlock iPod and get precious photo, music, videos, etc.

The step-to-step to use the tool:

Step one: Import your encrypted file

Download Tenorshare iPhone Backup Unlocker, install it and run it. Then start with importing the encrypted file stored on your pc by clicking "Open" and navigating for this file you. Usually, this file is stored automatically in the bellowing folder of computer's main system.
in XP, the file is stored as path: \Documents and Settings\(username)\Application Data\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup\
in Vista/Windows 7, the file path is stored as: \Users\(username)\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup\

Step two: Get the Attack Mode and set for chosen mode

Select the most suitable attacking type from three types that the tool provides: Brute-force Attack, Brute-force with Mask Attack, and Dictionary Attack. The Brute-force Attack tries all possible character combination randomly. It will require relatively reasonable length of time to get the password; the Brute-force with Mask Attack shortens attacking time by giving any clue concerning the password it is possible to remember in contrast to reduce time costs; the Dictionary Attack tries every one of the words in an exhaustive list called a dictionary that you supported.

Step three: Begin to Reset
Forgotten iPhone Backup Password

Click "Start" to begin unlock the password. Any time varies with respect to the attacking type you decide on in the previous step. During the process, it is possible to stop the method and save this work for later usage: importing the prior attacking brings about resume recovery without re-attacking.

Well, it is so magic for me to get the forgotten iPod backup password for my precious files!
