Editors' Review

Ultimate ZIP Cracker can help you recover password-protected files that you have forgotten the password for. All you have to do is tell the program as much as you know about the password you're trying to recover, and then let it do the rest.

Pros

Flexibility: This program works on ZIP, Word, and Excel files, and its straightforward interface walks you through the process of selecting the file and entering information about the password. The program also uses multiple methods as it attempts to crack the password, giving it a better chance of succeeding, overall.

Cons

Trial limits: The trial version of this program only allows you to test it on a password that's less than five characters. This type of limitation doesn't really let you get a good sense of what the program can do and how well it would perform when faced with the challenge of longer and more complex passwords.

Effectiveness: Even in the trial mode against basic passwords, the program did not perform well. When it did manage to find the password, it took a long time, sometimes even a few hours.

Bottom Line

Ultimate ZIP Cracker can be a useful tool if you can give it enough information about the password it's attempting to reveal. But our tests did not indicate that this program would perform well against passwords that you have little information about, and as we noted, the trial limitations make it hard to see what the app can really do. The full version of the software costs $59.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Ultimate ZIP Cracker 8.0.2.10.
