Occasionally, when distributing WinRAR archives, users might choose to lock them and prevent other people from modifying their contents. When you want to be able to edit these archives, you can rely on Winrar Unlock, a simple tool designed solely for this purpose.
The application comes with a very intuitive simplistic interface and you simply need to browse to the RAR file you want to unlock. Alternatively, you can drag and drop the file onto the main window of the software solution.
On the other hand, you can also select any SFX and remove its restrictions, so as to have the liberty to modify the assigned comment and modify its contents. Regardless of the type of file you settle on, the app offers you the possibility to create a backup file before starting the unlocking process.
It needs to be mentioned that Winrar Unlock does not affect the integrity of the processed files in any way, as the application acts like a patch that simply determines if the archive is indeed locked or not. The next step is to change its properties so that restrictions are lifted.
Even though it is extremely user-friendly and novices can easily unlock their RAR and SFX files using this software utility, this tool should only be used with the consent of the archives’ owners, as unlocking a confidential file is deemed as illegal.
