Forgot a password to that RAR archive? Look no further.

RAR is not merely a popular tool for compressing files. It also does passwords. Unfortunately, humans only do passwords some of the time, and your data is not much use to you hidden beneath a security protocol. Fortunately, help is at hand with these RAR password crackers.

Password recovery for RAR files tends to take the form of brute force attacks, in which the computer tries every possible password within a given parameter until it finds the correct one. This can take the form of going through an entire dictionary, or include strings of numbers. If users are given the option of a mask they can filter the guesses based on password length as well.

All the software in the list below does roughly the same thing - the best bet is to find one that works for you and stick with it.
