    I need to check if a zip file is password protected before attempting to reveal the contents.    Is there a function that allows me to do that?

    Hi Dan,

     

    You could verify that the ZippedFile was password protected by checking the value of the ZippedFile’s Encrypted property. The documentation on this property is available at: http://doc.xceedsoft.com/products/xceedfilesystem/Xceed.Zip~Xceed.Zip.ZippedFile~Encrypted.html.

    That works!   Thanks.

    As a future enhancement it would be nice to be able to do a password test.

    Hi,

    The Zip file format allows every item that is part of the archive to be individually encrypted or not.

    As such, in the Xceed Zip for .NET component, the ZippedFile object contains a Encrypted property that specifies if the zipped item the object represents is encrypted or not. This is the only property which can be checked in this regard.

    Documentation:
    http://forums.xceed.com/wp-content/documentation/xceed-filesystem-for-net/webframe.html#topic7888.html

    To use the property, if you know the name of a specific file in the archive you are using:

    AbstractFile zipFile = new DiskFile( @”Case165655.zip” );
    ZipArchive zip = new ZipArchive( zipFile );

    // Get your file that is in the archive
    ZippedFile zippedFile = ( ZippedFile ) zip.GetFile( “MyFile.dat” );

    // Get whether it is encrypted or not
    bool encrypted = zippedFile.Encrypted;

    If, however, you do not know the name of a file in the archive:

    // Get the files in the archive
    AbstractFile[] files = zip.GetFiles( true );

    // If we have at least one file
    if( files.Length > 0 )
    {
    // Take the first file and cast it as a ZippedFile
    ZippedFile zippedFile = ( ZippedFile ) files[ 0 ];

    // Get whether it is encrypted or not
    bool encrypted = zippedFile.Encrypted;
    }

    To actually decrypt the items in your archive:

    zip.DefaultDecryptionPassword = “my password”;

    AbstractFolder destinationFolder = new DiskFolder( @”MyFolder” );
    zip.CopyFilesTo( destinationFolder, true, true );
