Where are Dreamweaver Server Connections

Ok odd question.

Where does Dreamweaver store Hosting server passwords and usernames?

What has happened: I have a really old site I built. The hard drive it was stored/built on crashed. However I do have an image of that old drive backed up.
I no longer have the Username and Password to the Hosting company.

I know the Connections folder holds DB connections but I need the actual "Server Connections" that I created within the Dreamweaver site setup servers tab.

Thanks Jason. However not really what I was looking for. Doing some more research I did find this out for anyone else looking:

On Windows, Dreamweaver site definitions are stored in the Windows Registry. It's unlikely that you'll be able to extract data from the Registry.

So back those site defs up regularly or suffer what has happened to me and have to spend time going thru the long website ownership confirmations/verifications with the hosting company.

But for those willing to try:
password.php
