Protecting zip files have always been very important because there are too many documents and details that cannot be kept simply or unprotected and thus it is necessary to make sure that the documents and the data is compressed so that they can be organised and most importantly kept safe from all the third intervention. Now it is quite common that you are going to forget the password, with so many of them at hand. Thus it is imperative to make sure that you have all the tools at hand to be able to gain access to the file.

However one thing must be kept in mind that unlocking and recovering has a difference and this is important to understand because recovering means trying to connect to the original password that you had provided and unlocking may refer to trying to gain access to a protected file that is owned by someone else. Even though the preferences are different, the method of gaining access to the file is still the same and this is what has been provided by iSeePassword Studio. But my first suggestion is that try to recall the ZIP password you set before, try to keep clam and think of all possible combinations you use in the password, including your birthday, phone number, lucky number, license plate number and others that you often use. This is not ideal, although in some cases it may be acceptable to recover your forgotten ZIP password, but I still suggest you to give it a try, because in many cases, you might forgot password temporarily.

If this doesn't work, it seems to be a best choice to try an advanced ZIP password recovery program - Password Recovery Bundle. Which used the dynamic decryption techniques and unique data search algorithm, it offers  3 powerful attack types that ensure high success recovery rate and perform automatic and unattended recovery. You can directly download the trail version below and follow the guide to recover your ZIP password.
