I locked zipped folder few months ago. Now I forgot the password of it. Only I can remember few letters. Is there any way I can retrieve data in zip file? [file about 130mb]

It has to be brute forced, the protected ZIP file has it's data encoded with the password as the key. There is no way AT ALL to just get the password since no-one know it and the only way of knowing it is by entering the right password in the encoding.
Try searching on Google for ZIP brute forcers or password unlockers (variations are always good)
