It's gone forever. That's the idea of wiping clean.

Always make a note of passwords and logoncodes and keep them somewhere safe. Or backup the cookies, if you don't want to lose them when a disk breaks down or is wiped clean

But restoring cookies might be difficult, because there's a hidden index.dat file also. Same story for transferring them to a new computer. The good old 'write it down' is best.
