Zip Password Tool is an excellent simple utility that was designed to focus in one thing which is to recover a lost or forgotten password from an encrypted zip archive. It doesn't matter whether if it was created using WinZip, PKZip or any other ZIP software or if it's a self-extracting Zip-archives (SFX); all are accepted.

It's easy to forget or to not find a password to one of these zip files becoming a bigger issue if you need files stored in the archive immediately. But Zip Password Tool makes it easier with a simple designed Interface ready to run.

It also supports Zip archives encrypted using these methods: standard Zip 2.0 encryption, 128, 196 and 256-bit AES encryption.

The password search methods used are: Brute-force attack; Dictionary based attack , custom charset support for Brute-force attack ( with the ability to select special characters and national symbols) and additional case changes for dictionary passwords.

An efficient tool that recovers lost or forgotten passwords from zip archives.
