Editors' Review

Recover forgotten or lost passwords for encrypted archive files effectively with Advanced Archive Password Recovery. Packed with neatly organized options, the application's compact GUI is a bit congested but still proves fairly easy to follow. You can choose brute-force, mask, dictionary, or plain-text algorithms to retrieve passwords from several archive types, including ZIP and RAR, although some features will only work with certain formats. To narrow the scope of the recovery process, you can select beginning and ending characters and specify range options such as numbers, letters, or symbols. We were impressed watching Advanced Archive Password Recovery swiftly arrange and rearrange words to decipher passwords during our dictionary algorithm tests, and results were quickly returned. It supports multiple languages and can easily recognize non-English symbols. To safeguard the retrieval process, the program autosaves a backup to make sure your information won't be lost. The trial version only reveals passwords of five characters or less, and the price tag for the registered version may deter the casual user. That said, this feature-rich utility had a 100 percent recovery rate in our tests, and users who absolutely need access to protected archive files will certainly appreciate its capabilities.

"It's crap, plain & simple."

August 14, 2013  |  By bonniesilkie

 |  Version: Advanced Archive Password Recovery 4.54

Pros

The only thing that could remotely be called a pro is that it uninstalled easily.

Cons

Abridged version: It doesn't work. Took 2+ DAYS of constant running and massive CPU hogging to let me know it would be another *106* days/x hrs/xx minutes before it could crack the password. What a colossal waste of time.

Summary

Don't even bother giving it a try.

"Doesn't work well-don't bother"

July 23, 2008  |  By barkbarkwoof

 |  Version: Advanced Archive Password Recovery 4

Cons

As downloaded in shareware format this program doesn't recover anything. No one uses a three character password so it's useless.

It also seems to slow down the PC after install and even after uninstall. I suspect that the uninstall is not clean and utilities need to be run to get the remnants out.

"ALLOT of LIMITATIONS.."

"A quick scam !"

November 15, 2003

 |  Version: Advanced Archive Password Recovery 2.2

Summary

It only perform 3 passwords per second on my 1 Giga-Hz computer. For this speed I don't think it ever going to find it. After I calculated all the possibility of a 49 keys on the keyboard plus accounting for the uppercase and a space bar, it would take my computer at least 700 thousand years if my password is just only 8 character long (yes, seven hundred thousand years). So if you happen to own a 100 GigaHz computer (maybe in 2010) it would take you only 7 thousand years.

Summary
