PicoZip Recovery Tool
PicoZip Recovery Tool is an application which allows you to retrieve ZIP file password that you may have forgotten.
The program has a user-friendly interface in which you can select the source file by using the file browser (the "drag and drop" method is not supported).
So, you can specify the recovery method (brute force or dictionary-based), as well as the range (e.g. lowercase alphabets, numbers, all ASCII characters).
But you can also write the first part of the password (if you remember it), along with the minimum and maximum length.
Obviously, the more details you know about the respective password, the less time it will take PicoZip Recovery Tool to perform a search.
Once you have initiated the scanning process, you can view the current password and length, as well as the total number of tested passwords, elapsed time and a progress bar.
The results can be copied to the clipboard or saved as a TXT file. The program takes up a very low amount of memory, doesn't have an available help file and can take from several seconds to several hours to complete a task. No errors have occurred during our tests and PicoZip Recovery Tool seems to be accurate.
Since PicoZip Recovery Tool is very simple to work with, we strongly recommend this application to individuals of any level of experience.
