Could anyone recommend preferrably free tool for this task? Preferrably multi-core optimized.

Only this one free AFAIK:
http://www.crark.net/

Years ago I used this successfully:
http://www.elcomsoft.com/archpr.html

BUT, as evidenced on first link, simply FORGET about recovering a password with brute force unless you can restrict the range considerably (i.e. you know *something* about the actual password), or may be only your great-greatsons will be able to get to the cntents of the archive :ph34r:

Hm, that's promising :D I HOPE the password is less than 7 chars. Other than that... Well I have 8core machine available all the way until next weekenend, so I will give it a shot :P Thanks.

The crark thing looks interesting, but sadly no multicore support, and it doesn't even seem to work. I looked at the syntax of the configuration file and it still can't look for anything over one char long password.

I guess I will not waste time with this :P

Sure, it uses graphic card CPU (which is seemingly faster).
If you have not a machine with one of the supported cards it won't probably work fast enough, but it should work allright.
Possibly you have some issues with the syntax? :unsure:

Nah, the syntax is perfectly fine, but something else stinks. It works if I disable the GPU processing :D
