I have a RAR file that I need to recover but I wasn't given the password. Anyone out there, hackers, programmers, do you know how I can recover the RAR file without having to give the password or any other trick that might work? I really need to recover RAR password in a hurry. It takes me four hours to find out this RAR archive and then download it from the Internet and I can't believe that it is password protected. It is not fair! I need to open this encrypted RAR file right now! Please help me. Thanks in advance for your help.
Option 1: Crack RAR password with the help of the owner
If you download the RAR archive from the Internet, you might as well attempt to contact with the original owner of the RAR archive and then if he or she allows, then you can get the correct password from him or her. But I have to say that there is less chance of gaining the RAR password because usually either the owner is offline so you have to wait for a very long time to contact with him or her, or the original owner also forgot the password. Therefore, if you want to find out a free way, this is the last method, but you can also have a try if you want. All the best.
Option 2: Remove RAR password with RAR password recovery
There is no other free way to recover RAR password without any software. You have to make use of a useful RAR password recovery tool and anchor your hope on it if you really forget the password or lose the password and can't remember it any more. That is to say, you had better not forgetting or losing the password; otherwise, you will need to pay for it.
