Title basically says it all really I have an archive made using 7zip which is password protected and I used to open it and edit it almost everyday and so I didn't think i'd need to write the password down since I used the password thats different to all my other passwords but the thing is a few weeks later i've forgotten the password and the stuff in there isn't super important but I spent a lot of time and effort making it so I would like to have it back so if there is a way to get through the password please help out because I wasn't able to find anything online.

The archives are encrypted using 256bit AES encryption. You won't be able to brute force it until quantum computers come around, and thats not for another 20 years.
