Recovers lost passwords for encrypted ZIP archives

editor's review






As the name of this utility says, Free ZIP Password Recovery gives you the possibility of retrieving lost or forgotten passwords of your ZIP archives. It integrates options which are primarily oriented toward advanced users.

The interface of the app is not out of the ordinary but fairly simple to work with. Once you load the encrypted ZIP archive into the workspace using either the file browser or "drag and drop" function, you can start configuring settings.

The unregistered edition of the app lets you use only the brute-force recovery type, while the mask and dictionary-based modes are available only in the professional version of  Free ZIP Password Recovery.

It is possible to select the character set (e.g. Latin, space, digits, other symbols), specify the minimum length and write the beginning of the password to start with, if you know it.

Options concerning the program's behavior are available through the Settings screen. Therefore, you can enable automatic project saves at a specific time interval, restore the default options after restart, show a Free ZIP Password Recovery icon in the system tray area, and check for app updates online.

Free ZIP Password Recovery offers multilingual support and may take a long while to find out the ZIP's password, according to its length and charset diversity. It has a good response time and includes a help file for less experienced users. We have not come across any issues in our tests, as the utility did not hang, crash or show error dialogs. Aside from some needed improvements in the visual department of the UI, Free ZIP Password Recovery should please the entire audience.
