Among the many passwords that we have to remember, those we attach to files we don’t open frequently are the easiest to forget or lose. Free RAR Password Recovery is a tool specialized in retrieving any lost or forgotten password assigned to a RAR archive. Using brute-force attacks and your own hints about how the password was built, this free utility is capable of decrypting any RAR file in time.
The program comes in a lame but functional tabbed interface that goes straight to the point. Actually, whenever you forget the password required to unblock a sensitive file, an unattractive interface is the least of your worries. Thus, you are asked to select the encrypted RAR archive and to provide as much information as you can remember about how it was created. The more details you can provide, the shorter the search will be.
You can tell the program the character set(s) used to create the password – Latin, Caps Latin, Digits, Other Symbols, and even a specific charset designed by you if that was the case. You can help the program by defining the number of characters you used to build the password, or at least a minimal length. If you happen to remember some of the first characters you used, the program can also use that information to start its attacks from a more advantageous position. Though masks and dictionaries appear also as other possible recovery types, these are reserved for those purchasing the Pro edition. more
