How to open password protected rar files

If you download a rar file either through an email attachment or through some file sharing service and are not able to open it because it is password protected, you can still open it with few softwares. Internet is full of winrar password recovery program though unfortunately a very good number of them are not that effective as they work on dictionary based attacks and most of the rar files don’t have dictionary based passwords, either thy will have website names who uploaded them on file sharing websites like rapidshare/megaupload or the uploader’s name or forum id.

Anyway Here is the list of popular softwares which can open password protected rar files -

1. Rar Password Cracker is one fhe most downloaded and popular software but its reviews are not that good in download.com. The trial version only recovers 3 digit passwords and the full version costs $30. I am also pretty sure it works on dictionary/brute force attack.

2. RAR Password Cracker, though I haven’t used it, is considered to be good. The only problem is, its little outdated and not available for vista. Its also been reported as been buggy and not working all the time. Anyway its free so we really can’t complaint.

3. You can see many password recovery softwares here for winrar. I have not tested them but you can give it a try.

    Thanks for the list of all these password recovery softwares but unfortunately most of them are not that great. And then people are charging like $30-$40 for them when most of time, you are not even sure if they work or not ?

    Well I personally have never used these softwares other then the trial versions so I can’t comment on them, on there success rate or whether the price is justified.
