Alternatively, you can define your own character set (charset). Just mark the "User-defined" checkbox and click on "Custom charset…" (at the right of the option). In the input window, enter all chars of your password range; for example: if you remember that your password was entered in the bottom keyboard row ("zxcv...") - your password range should be "zxcvbnm,./" (or in caps: "ZXCVBNM<>?"). You can also define both of these: "zxcvbnm,./ZXCVBNM<>?". In addition, you can load and save custom charsets, or combine them using the "Add charset from file..." button.


Just a note about "Convert to OEM encoding" option in the "User Defined Charset" option. Be sure to select it if the password contains any non-English characters, and the archive has been created by a DOS-based compression utility (like PKZIP, for example). Otherwise, the password will not be found.
