This may be useful for those who have lost the password to their zip files or who have zip files that are password protected.

*Assume the zip file you want to crack is named CrackMe.zip and it is located in your desktop
1. Download fcrackzip from http://blog.rubypdf.com/wp-download/crack/fcrackzip-1.0-win32.zip
2. Extract the downloaded fcrackzip to your desktop after downloading
3. Start your command prompt or type cmd in your computer search bar and click on the command prompt.
4. Once your command prompt opens, change the directory to desktop. For example, on my system I would simply type the following: cd C:\Users\Martins\Desktop\
5. After changing the directory to desktop, type the following in your command prompt: fcrackzip -b C:\Users\Martins\Desktop\CrackMe.zip
6. The program will immediately start attempting to crack the password of the zip file. The

lenght of time it takes to crack a particular password depends on the type of password. It can

take a few minutes, hours, days or even weeks.
7. Goodluck and feel free to drop your comments or questions.
