Whenever I need to use these files, I use the password to extract data from Zip folder and after usage I used to delete the extracted files. I am not able to follow the same procedure now as the zip files are missing from my computer. I do not know what went wrong, I am unable to find my password protected Zip file anymore at the location where it was stored on my computer. Please let me know if there is any solution to get back my password protected Zip file.”
