The default password for the archive is 1234. If you've set something else and forgot it, then there is no way you could recover it since no applications are created for this procedure. Instead of spending high amounts of money on applications that don't work, I recommend contacting Apple Support. The problem with the backup is that's encrypted, and it's quite possible that even Apple can't crack it.
