Windows 7: Need a program that searches through large zips

Need a program that searches through large zips

I have a back up and somewhere in that back up is a small text file that I need which I have no idea where it is in 150 gb of zip files so I don't wanna extract the whole thing but I need to search through it. I don't think windows search is powerful enough or is even able to search through zip files but I need some program/utility that can do this job. Please link me to the program. I need it urgently.

IZarc (free) will do it with no fuss
IZArc - Download

Filelocator Lite pro (paid - cheap) will also search for contents within the zip file I believe!

I believe Free Commander can also search through ZIP and other archives with no problem.

Very highly recommended for general purpose and super-convenenient drag/drop file management (instead of Windows Explorer) with multi-pane presentation and customizable toolbar, etc., etc..
