Advanced Archive Password Recovery
An ultimate tool to recover lost or forgotten passwords for ZIP (PKZip/WinZip), ARJ, RAR (WinRAR) and ACE archives.
Supports the customizable "brute-force" attack,
effectively optimized for speed (for ZIP, up to 15 million passwords per second on
Pentium III); dictionary-based attack, and very fast and effective known-plaintext attack.
For WinZip archives with 5 or more encrypted files, guaranteed decryption is available.
Multilanguage interface is provided.

Advanced Archive Password Recovery Features:
Please note, however, that for the password is not stored anywhere in the archive (ZIP/RAR/ARJ/ACE file),
and so it cannot be just extracted or decrypted. Instead, ARCHPR can recover it by trying different passwords:
all possible combinations in a given range, or from a wordlist, etc. ARCHPR can test as many as fifteen
million passwords per second (for ZIP archives), and so the likelihood of finding a valid one is very high.
There is still no guarantee that the password will be recovered, but here the human factor plays its role:
most people use short and/or easy to remember passwords. We estimate the success rate as 90-95%.
- Guaranteed decryption (usually, within the hour) of most WinZip archives (with 5+ encrypted files) is available; it works regardless the password complexity and length.
- The program has a convenient user interface.
- The program is very fast: on 1GHz CPU, it tests about fifteen million passwords per second (or about a billion passwords per minute) -- according to independent reviewers and experts, the fastest ZIP cracker in the world!
- Known plainext attack is available.
- The program can work with archives containing only one encrypted file only (at the same speed).
- Self-extracting archives are supported.
- The program is customizable: you can set the password length (or length range), the character set to be used to generate the passwords, and a lot of other options.
- You can select the custom character set for brute-force attack (non-English characters are supported).
- Dictionary-based attack is available.
- The "brute-force with mask" attack is available.
- The maximum password length is not limited (there are some practical limitations, though).
- No special virtual memory requirements.
- You can interrupt the program at any time, and restart from the same point later.
- The program can work in the background, using the CPU only when it is in idle state.
