Editors' Review

This program recovers forgotten passwords for RAR archives. Recovery runs in the background and resumes on the next system start-up. When you have completely forgotten a password, Advanced RAR Password Recovery will run a brute-force attack that applies all possible combinations one by one. In such a case, you can set the minimum and maximum number of characters and the character sets you used (letters, numbers, and non-English characters). If you recall part of the password, you can restrict the search area with a mask such as m***l. If you have used a meaningful word for your password, the dictionary attack helps. You can plug in external dictionaries and check all possible lowercase and uppercase combinations. To decrease recovery time, the program optimizes its code for each type of processor. The trial version limits recovery to three-letter combinations, which doesn't give you the opportunity to fully evaluate performance. If you've forgotten the password for an important archived document, however, Advanced RAR Password Recovery may save you.

"Effective software. The best we could find for now."

March 19, 2014  |  By jason892199

 |  Version: Advanced RAR Password Recovery 1.52

Pros

Simply works. IN CERTAIN CONDITIONS.
See cons.

Cons

Actually this is the common con of all rar decryption software:
The brute force function isn't efficient after the password's length reaches 6 letters.
Don't complain that it should've worked on ur dual-core or whatever PC. No one can.
If the password is long and complicated, u must at least have some clues of the pw to narrow down the range, otherwise it's definitely gonna take quite a few days or months to crack that pw.

All in all don't waste ur money if ur pw is long, complicated and completely forgotten.

Go find a scientist friend and solve the problem on a supercomputer.

"Very good, but doesn't defy space/time to give answer"

June 07, 2010  |  By jortony

 |  Version: Advanced RAR Password Recovery 1.52

Pros

It allows for user input to narrow search

Cons

This would be nice if it used rainbow tables.

Summary

Very useful if there are a large group of possibilities which doesn't exceed you're IQ in bits. Due to the nature of vast possibility, and related improbability, if you are a user who searches for a 10 character password with all alpha + numeric + symbols, you are in for a very long wait, but for the good of humanity if learning is not active, you may wait until it is finished.

January 15, 2008  |  By sunu123

 |  Version: Advanced RAR Password Recovery 1.52

Pros

this program has a simple interface and yet easy to use

dispite the simple interface and easy to use this program was slower than a turtle, it takes years to crack a password ( even with dual core CPU ).

Man, **** happens...
