I m trying to extract a zipped file through DotNetZip . The file is encrypted with a password and needs to be either reset or removed. I used ExtractAll method but received exception:
BadPasswordException was unhandled, the password didnot match.

What I have tried:

My code is below:
using (Ionic.Zip.ZipFile zip = Ionic.Zip.ZipFile.Read(source_file))
    zip.Password = "1234";
    zip.ExtractAll(dest_path, Ionic.Zip.ExtractExistingFileAction.OverwriteSilently);

Hopes For suggestion

I guess the error message is clear. You need to know the password to unzip.

If you do not know the password, then you will get this error.
And there is no way to extract the data without the correct password - that is the whole idea of applying a password to zip data.
If you don't have it, go back to the person who sent you the file, and ask them - we cannot help you, and would not if we could: We do not condone, support, or assist in the production of malicious code in any way, form, or manner. This is a professional site for professional developers.
