Restoring data from backup that has a forgotten pin

I foolishly changed my pin and did not write it down and overnight I did not remeber what it was.

I followed all the reset directions and have the phone back in order but my emails and pics are not back

I have a backup in Google but it wants the old pin that I cannot remeber and it only gives so many attempts before it deletes the information.

Where too from here?

Thank you

I went to Verizon and Geek Squad and niether were any help.

I was able to see my old account on Google takeout and downloaded all the pics, so I have those and when I installed an email client all my mail came back as I do not erase from the server, and messageing was retrieved also.

Everything such as apps and setings I had to start all fresh, so it's all good now.
