Passwords With Zipped Files

  Robotic_Rob 23:22 28 Jun 2004

Being the lad i am i have put a password on a zipped file. And i cant remember what the password is at all. Is they any chance anyone can crack the password for me(If i send them the file) or tell me a program that can crack a zipped file with the character limits being from about 1-15.

It is all my own work, so its all legal.(For FE before he wants to delete the topic for being illegal)

I would be really greatful.

As you are aware this is against the site policy. However from the way you have worded your question, I guess that this is a legitimate request. Was this password protected using WinZip, or what?

That is why i said it is all my own work, as it is. If they was a way i cud verify that i made the document on my pc then i would certainly show the proof.

I used Winrar, but i selected it to be a zip file. As i cant seem to get the password to work properly saving it as a Rar(*.rar)

As far as i can remember the password was either all letters or all numbers. Not a mixed password with all sorts of characters in it.

Also the file is only a Exel file being 73kb in size. So surly that would prove it cant be out important to anyone but me.

Cheers Vog + Dan The Confused.

But Vog its a zip file, so it wont work with that rar one you gave. And Dan The Confused, i dont know how to use that "Advanced ZIP Password Recovery v3.54" properly so it dunt do it.

Either of you two, if i send you the file may you find out the password for me. And email with password. ???

Id be Greatfull
