RAR Password Cracker 4.12
An intuitive and user-friendly software solution for all those who want to retrieve the password of their RAR archives using either bruteforce or dictionary methods
The application provides two different password recovery modes, namely BruteForce and Dictionary, each of them taking up to several hours depending on the password complexity and size of the RAR file.
Although we've seen similar programs in the past, RAR Password Cracker adopts a different approach, relying on a well-organized wizard to guide users throughout the whole process.
First of all, you are prompted to select the encrypted RAR archive and pick one of the two password recovery methods mentioned above. In case you go for the Dictionary method, you also need to provide a dictionary file, and that may really be a problem since the application doesn't come with a built-in one.
There are multiple options in the dictionary attack mode, such as the possibility to check for all uppercase or lowercase passwords.
The BruteForce attack, on the other hand, needs you to define a charset, but that only takes a few seconds because the app not only includes three different pre-defined settings (digits, lowercase and uppercase latin), but it also allows you to load another one.
Again, you should pick the minimal and the maximal length of the password and, if you remember, the first and the last characters.
Recovering a password could take up to a few hours, but RAR Password Cracker remains light on computer resources all the time, without affecting performance at all.
Overall, RAR Password Cracker comes as a more affordable choice to the already famous solutions in this particular category. And since it’s easier to use than similar solutions, it's really worth a shot.
