Hi mth2020,

Rar passwords are the most difficult to be cracked.However there are some software that claims they can do so, I tried elecom but it gives me huge estimated time required, give them a try

If it's archived with WinRAR earlier than version 3.1 the password can be recovered, after that it's brute force I'm afraid

I remember trying a RAR password recovery crack some time ago, I left a system running for 3 days, and it still did not get the password.  I would recommend you try EVERY imaginable password that you might have used, either waking or asleep.  It will be less hassle than running the PW recovery software.

I agreew tih scratchboy regarding cracking the password via software that's why I declared it most difficult cost it can take upto years cracking a password of 10 digits.
anyhow, you can still use the software with dictionary attack.
