ZIP RAR ACE Password Recovery
ZIP RAR ACE Password Recovery is an application with a pretty self-explanatory title - it can retrieve lost or forgotten passwords on archives of the ZIP, RAR and ACE formats (plus EXE).
The interface of the program is clean and intuitive. You can add an archive by using the file browser or the "drag and drop" method.
So, you can select the charset (small letters, caps letters, space, digits, other symbols, custom) and save it for further projects.
But you can also set the priority level (low, normal or high), as well as specify the recovery type (brute force, mask or dictionary) and start options (minimal length, start from).
In addition, you can select a dictionary for ZIP RAR ACE Password Recovery to use, as well as set the tool to minimize to system tray.
If the task is successful, you can view the revealed password, file path and format, as well as copy or save the password in a text document.
In the "Settings" menu, you can set the program to automatically save projects at a specific time interval, restore default options after restarting it, to always show the icon in the system tray and to automatically check for updates online.
The program takes up a low-to-moderate amount of system resources and has a well-written user documentation. It manages to successfully complete a task without popping up any errors (evidently, this can take a while).
Unfortunately, the demo version only allows you to retrieve passwords up to three characters in length, so we cannot accurately evaluate the tool. But the demo software showed us promising features. We recommend ZIP RAR ACE Password Recovery to all users.
