Editors' Review

+
RAR Password Recovery proved to be an effective way to uncover lost or forgotten passwords, but--as its name implies--it only works with one file type. Its straightforward, tabbed interface clearly represents the three main password recovery options: Brute-Force, Booost-Up, and Dictionary. Each approach proved successful in our tests, although the demo limits passwords to three characters. Conveniently, you can save password recovery settings in projects for future use. While it can only handle one file format, users who need to unlock their RAR files will find this application up to the task.

"Complete rubbish. Do not waste time and money"

May 29, 2013  |  By swdl66

 |  Version: RAR Password Recovery 1.1 RC16

Pros

There are no pros

Cons

The CNET downloader installs unwanted toolbars
The program itself takes 8 hours 45 minutes to do nothing - Password not found

Summary

I created a RAR file with a simple 3 character password. nearly 9 hours later I receve a message advising that the password was not found.
Average speed was 25 password/sec. At that rate a 5 character password (7 billion possible combinations) would take up to 10 YEARS to crack!!

"Acts like malware - demo too limited"

June 06, 2011  |  By Maroonandgold

 |  Version: RAR Password Recovery 1.1 RC16

Pros

None that I can see

Cons

This program opens popups, requires admin UAC where it should not, and required revo uninstaller to remove many features. This is a bad trial. The trial itself can only crack passwords up to 3 characters.

Summary

Far too risky to demo. The very limited ability of the demo makes it not even worth trying. I am very disappointed that CNET lets this thing stay in the download library as it exhibits far too many malware traits.

"Don't trust this file either..."

April 27, 2010  |  By dus10r

 |  Version: RAR Password Recovery 1.1 RC16

Pros

Good at being a trojan horse.

Cons

Tried a virus scan on this file after it downloaded and my anti-virus says that this is a password protected archive also....hmmm. SCAM!!! Don't download.

Summary

This files is probably a trojan, it's a password protected archive file too. Don't trust it...

"Great Program!"

March 25, 2009  |  By martt182

 |  Version: RAR Password Recovery 1.1 RC16

Pros

Does exactly what it it says

Cons

Doesn't make my dinner

Summary

This is not a con. Fair enough it takes ages but any good password cracker will. You have to buy the full version to crack every rar file. Based on some user reviews, obviously you can't test the program with downloaded rar files if you have a 3 character limit but did ya ever think to create an encrypted .rar file and use the program to try find the password to test it? Common sense really

"This is a con!"

January 23, 2009  |  By Straylight99

 |  Version: RAR Password Recovery 1.1 RC16

Pros

Nothing, it's a con.

Cons

Unable to test if it does anything as it only allows 3 digit passwords as the maximum. Rubbish!
