Free RAR Password Unlocker helps you recover passwords, especially those you don't use very often -- such as RAR archives. Free RAR Password Unlocker employs three methods to crack your password, so you can extract the archive: Brute Force All, Brute Force Masked, and Dictionary. They vary in speed and power, and which method works best depends on factors like the strength of your lost password.

Pros

Brute Force options: We could set the pass length under the Brute Force options to keep Free RAR Password Unlocker from spending too much time trying to crack tough passwords.

Dictionary options: If you tend to use the same password elements or think you remember part of a password, entering it in the Dictionary options tab could help the software do its job.

Logs: Activity is recorded in a text log you can review (and, who knows, possibly jog your memory of a forgotten password).

Cons

No guarantees: It can take a long time to plow through every combination, and some passwords may be unrecoverable (or practically so).

Confusing options: The layout could be clearer. For example, the Recovery menu lists three methods, yet the Recovery Method tab only lists two.

Help button: The software's description promises instructions, but the Help button does nothing, and the Web link leads to a list of other freeware.

Bottom Line

Your choices are limited when you can't remember an archive's password. Free RAR Password Unlocker gives you several choices to help you retrieve that lost password.
