Decrypting Lost Document & Zipped File Passwords  - Decrypting Lost Document & Zipped File Passwords
Fri, February 20 2004 | 8:57PM | PermaLink Feedback?
While many operating systems allow users with administrative privileges to set permissions on documents, this method is not always easy or straightforward, and thus not particularly desirable to the average user. If you want to make sure that only you and your compatriots can access certain documents, encrypting and password protecting said documents is the obvious way to go. To this end, many popular software packages provide a method of safeguarding files, generally based on a password. This is fine, but what if you forget the password? You might as well have deleted your work, right? Only this time the 'previous saved document' function will not save you... But not so fast. As we will endeavor to show in this article, a lot of the methods of protection used by common software packages far from invulnerable. With time, the right software and the right instruction, you can crack the protection on your files and reclaim your documents. You can also recover incorrectly deleted documents, even if they have already passed beyond the recycle bin into that digital bit of heaven somewhere between the plug and wall socket.
