I've lost the password to my ZIP archive that i made using combain backup 8. I need the files back, but i cant for the life of me remember what the password was. Is there some kind of program that is free that does a brute force attack, or a dictionary attack to crack the password that is more than 5 characters long... cause all ive been able to find is trail software that only cracks the first 5 characters (how useful is that?).
