RAR Password Recovery User Guide

WinRAR is used widely in our daily life and work. But what can we do if we forget the password of encrypted Office files? You know it happens a lot, because so many files need to be protected. So, how to recover RAR lost password? Here, we will give you a demonstration about recovering lost WinRAR password with RAR Password Recovery.

Overview of the steps
  1. 1. Click Open to import the RAR file you want to decompress
  2. 2. Choose an attack type to recover lost RAR password
  3. 3. Choosing password search settings (displayed only if the Brute-Force with Mask or Dictionary Attack mode is set)
  4. 4. Click "Start" button and then you will get your lost password
Step1: Click Open to import the RAR file you want to decompress:

import the RAR file

Select your WinRAR/RAR file in the Open File window, and click "Open".

select RAR file



Step2: Choose an attack type to recover lost RAR password:

There are three attack types in our program for you to recover your password. They are Brute-force attack, Brute-force with Mask attack and Dictionary attack.

Select RAR attack type

1. Brute-Force Attack. This Attack will try all possible characters combinations in the specified Range. The Range is defined by Password Length and Brute-Force Range Options.

2. Brute-Force with Mask Attack. This Attack is useful when you remeber a part of Password. For example if you remember that length of your password was 6 characters and password begins from "M", you can define the mask "M????" and save the time by trying 5 symbols instead of 6.M Password Mask must be defined to use this Attack.

3. Dictionary Attack. This Attack verifies the words stored in the specified Dictionary File. The dictionary is just the text (ASCII file) with one work at a line; the lines are separated with line breaks. You can set additional Dictionary Options for this Attack. A Dictionary Attack is much more faster than Brute-Force so we recommend to run it first.



Step3: Choosing password search settings (displayed only if the Brute-Force with Mask or Dictionary Attack mode is set):

Take Brute-force with Mask Attack as example, you should offer some password symbols which you can remember.

Choose Brute-force with Mask Attack, then click "Brute-force" on the taskbar.

Brute-force Attack

Please choose the research area of the password including length, uppercase, lowercase, numbers, symbols, prefix and suffix.

1. Password length: the choosing of minimal and maximal password length. (In some cases the program may determine the exact length of the password and this selection is grayed-out).

2. Brute-force range options:The Predefined Passwords Ranges contain the following Characters:

a) "a - z": abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz
b) "A - Z": ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ
c) "0 - 9": 0123456789
d) " !@...." !@#$%^&*()_+-=<>,./?[]{}~:;`'|"\
e) "All Printable": contains all Ranges defined above

3. Password mask: If you already know some characters in the Password, you can specify the Mask to decrease the total number of passwords to be verified. At the moment, you can set the Mask only for fixed-length Passwords, but doing this can still help. For example, you know that the Password contains 7 characters, starts with 'W', and ends with 'R8'; the other symbols are small or capital letters. So, the Mask to be set is "W????R8".

On this stage you can monitor the program's work and get the final report. During the program work the information of time spent and approximate search time left for password finding (according to the parameters set) is displayed on the monitor. If the program is successfully done, the passwords for your RAR archive is displayed in Password fields. Click "Copy" and paste (CTRL+v) it to the password-required blank to open the archive.
