Password-protecting all your sensitive information is always a good idea, especially when you are dealing with archives that contain personal files.

ZIP Password Cracker Expert can come to your rescue when you happen to forget the password you used to protect a certain archive, thus allowing you to access its contents without too much trouble.

The main window of the application might not look like much, yet the app's strength lies in its features, not its appearance.

You simply need to select an archive (via drag and drop, or manual browsing), choose the type of recovery you prefer, then wait until your password is found.

The supported archives are ZIP, 7z, Gzip, TAR, Bz2, Bzip2 and SFX archives (with the extension EXE).

There are multiple attack types you can choose from when it comes to recovering your password: brute force, dictionary, smart dictionary and mask.

You can select the smart dictionary option when you are looking to get various mutations of potential passwords from your dictionary files.

If you are unsure which attack method would be better suited, you can simply choose all of them. However, you need to keep in mind that it might take a long time to complete.

ZIP Password Cracker Expert offers you the possibility to change the priority level for the app to ensure it does not interfere with your other programs. More specifically, you can set it to be highest, above normal, normal, below normal, and lowest.

All in all, the application offers a flurry of customization options to help you retrieve your forgotten or lost archive password. It also stores all the detected passwords in a file, so you no longer forget about them again.
