Choosing the right attack: Choose the attack as per your requirement. If you don’t remember anything in the password, try Brute-force attack. If you know a little bit about your forgotten password such as length, first char, last char, lower letters, upper letter, and symbols then try Brute-force with Mask attack. Dictionary attack in the sense it can check for the combination of words from the dictionary which uploaded by you.
- It will now start recovering your password and wait for the complete recovery.
- Once it is done, you’ll get a new window by showing your password. Note down and use it.
- That’s it.
2. Rar Password Cracker (RPC 4.21 )
The RPC works differently from the above tool that removes the password instead of recovering it. It would be great if you extract the files without entering the password at all. It works with brute force and dictionary attacks.
This tool doesn’t need extra system requirements such as RAM, CPU, etc. Compatible with any Windows versions.
Let’s see how…

The RPR is yet another premium password recovery program, much like RPU. It is the most downloaded program, almost 500K+ downloads and got positive reviews. The Tenoshare is trusted software development company and their products are highly-rated and awarded.
It is completely different than the two password unlocker programs above listed so if you have any issues with them then try the RPR program.

How does it work? Drag and drop your RAR archive file to the tool. Using advanced dictionary attack with “mistypes” and user dictionaries can help to resolve the password.
