Remove an Archive Files Password

Specs: Windows
How do I remove the password to a .zip or .rar file? Ive tried brute force attack programs that recover passwords but they dont work. Since the computer would know when I get the password right, the password must be stored SOMEWHERE. Anyone know where that somewhere is or know another way to recover the password? Thanks.

Can't assist with hacking on here - we've no way to know who's file it is anyhow.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

There is certainly no need to store the password anywhere. Any decent method of protecting a file would not allow a password to be recovered so easily.

The password is of course stored, but not on your computer. It is part of the archived file(s).

Here is something to consider: there is a reason why those files are pwd-protected. You.

From the original post:
"Since the computer would know when I get the password right, the password must be stored SOMEWHERE"

As the poster is trying passwords surely that means that the password is not known.
