ZIP Password Recovery software program will help recover lost passwords from Zip, Winzip and 7z archive files. All versions of these programs are compatible with the tool. So, you do not have to worry as about version compatibility at all. This tool uses four different attack types. The brute force method, of course, is the process where the program will simply try all possible combinations of characters. Brute force with mask, dictionary and smart attack are three other methods available. Brute force with mask masks out some character positions so the search is faster. These would be characters which have been correctly guessed. Dictionary attack uses well known and common passwords and tries those highly probable combinations. Smart attack uses some smart algorithms of the publishers to optimize the speed of recovery. Beyond the basic issue that you need to correctly find all the characters used in the password, main attention needs to be provided to how fast the search can be done.
