I am using VPN to connect to my office Network. I remember the Username and password , which is used in Dial-Up, but forgot the IPSec Pre-Shared key, It was provided a long tome ago and I do not remember the key, it is Saved on my Computer and I still use it to Connect VPN. Now I want to Re-Install my Windows. I want to Save or Backup that VPN Connection so that I can use it later on Newly installed Windows.
I have tried SAM, SECURITY, SYSTEM files in Config folder, Asterisk Removers, HEX to ASCII Converter, Backing Up my VPN(L2TP/IPSec) Connection(.pbk file). But could not find my Pre-Shared key. I know it is Stored Somewhere in my PC and probably in Plain Text in Registry, But don't know where and how can I possibly extract it from Registry.
It will me much easier for me to get the pre-shared key in plain text , instead of Exporting in .reg file, as it may probably cause issues, if I Install a different OS.
Please guide me to resolve this issue in as much detail as possible.
If you need further information about my System or Settings, Please do not hesitate to ask me.
