Lost my Gamertag. Can I recover it?

I haven't been able to play my 360 in 8 months due to an injury. I had my Gamertag on a memory card because I wanted it to be portable. I'm about to start 360 gaming again but now I have a problem: I've lost that memory card that holds my Gamertag. I've no idea what happened to it. I still have the case for the memory card, but the memory card is not with it. I've moved during my 8 month away from my 360, so it's very possible I lost the card during the move.

Is there any way I can recover my Gamertag? Or do I have to start over again?

 

I would greatly appreciate any help remedying this situation or if someone can direct me to some helpful info then that'd be great too. Thanks.

If you know your windows live id and password to your account you should be able to recover it. NOTE: If you have gotten any achievements offline you will not keep them when you recover your tag.

Yeah...all you should have to do is recover it, but if you have forgotten the Live ID and password, then that will further complicate your situation and will call for the now-infamous "account verification" process.

You can go to the Guide button and click Recover Gamertag. Then just follow the easy on-screen directions.
