ZIP Password Recovery Magic
As the name implies, ZIP Password Recovery Magic is capable of recovering lost or forgotten passwords to your ZIP archives. It bundles a few useful features and it is simple to work with, regardless of the user's skill level.
After a brief and uneventful setup operation, you are greeted by a regular window with a plain layout, where you can submit a ZIP file for evaluation using the file browser.
It is possible to set up some password recovery parameters before initializing the task. ZIP Password Recovery Magic provides two attack modes: brute force and dictionary-based.
The first mode is able to process letters, numbers and symbols, depending on your selection. Furthermore, you can establish the password minimal and maximum length. The more details you know about the password in question, the less time it will take the program to finish the task.
As far as the dictionary attack method is concerned, you can use ZIP Password Recovery Magic's preset text document or point out to another one. Settings may be restored to their factory values at any time.
The application may take a long while to finish a task, depending on the complexity of the key. It has a good response time and runs on low CPU and RAM, so it doesn't interrupt user activity or slow down overall performance. It can be minimized to the taskbar while you're working in other tools.
However, ZIP Password Recovery Magic has not been updated for a very long time, and it is not supported by newer OS platforms.
