Zip format has now become the world standard for archiving. Zip archives have long been known and successfully used to archive various types of files. Many people know that the zip archives can be encrypted. Unfortunately, the passwords to files sometimes get lost. If the user forgets the password to the zip file, you should use the program for the recovery, zip password, for example Manyprog Zip Password Recovery. This program can be run fairly quickly remove password to zip, especially if you narrow down your search by specifying the intended type of characters, which are part of the password.
It is believed that the encrypted zip archives is much weaker than rar archives. When you encrypt encrypted zip archives only those files that are included in it. And in the case of rar archives are encrypted even data files included in the archive, such as size, name, comments and so on. For a long time we used the zip archives as simple encryption, which was created by a huge number of programs that can decrypt the password within minutes. With the release of the ninth version of WinZip archiver situation has changed. Archiver started using 128-and 256-bit encryption using the algorithm Rijndael. Rijndael - is the encryption standard AES. The standard has three types of keys - 128, 192 and 256 bits. Rijndael has many advantages, in particular, very high speed encryption and minimal resource requirements. At the present time - it is one of the most secure encryption algorithms.
At the same time, we should not forget that the strength of the password is entirely dependent on the user. Do not use as a password the word or phrase, as there are a lot of programs that are selected passwords using dictionaries. To ensure maximum reliability, the password must contain at least 8 characters, should not be a word that can be found in the dictionary, and must include both letters and numbers or special characters. Do not forget that the password is case-sensitive. Under these conditions, a zip information will be protected. True, it will be harder to recover if you lose it.
