I have a .RAR file that is password protected. When I try to access it, it prompts me for the password. I want to know how to extract the file without the password?

      when you try to extract the exe file it asks for password then just close the password bpx it will get extracted

    I use an application on blacberry which allows you to extract rar files, even password protected ones withou even knowing the password.
    The app is Rock File Manager. Brilliant app!!!

    I had same problem with one rar file, and i know cracking it without password is a long shot. All the crack or recovery softwares indeed work, but they are all based on exhaustive method, that means if the password is short and simple, you can get it in minutes, but if it is relatively long, it will take forever literally. I don't see how other than that.

    i have same issues, and crawling all the web n found at least 10 freeware n shareware n trialware. but none give result no matter what i chose. i think all this sofware just a scam or need to buy or i dontwaht to said. i also found crack version n nothing also in result for first 3 word. n the long u set the longger u must wait. that was so fraud when u wait for a long time n nothing come accross. i wonder if this software is legit ot not. if it legit n have success story, i maybe will spent a buck to buy it(but maybe just let data bygone n start new) so, in this story, i think the .rar is not yours, secondly u download it from internet. so if u download it from internet, just visit the provider u download and they always put the passwd at the download section of the file. if the file is not yours, dont try any method unless u willing to pay the price for it then just find expert.

    You download the RAR files from the internet? The WinRAR password sometimes is the URL from where the file was downloaded. Another possibility is the password could be within the filename. If these tips can’t get a help, recovering the RAR password with a third party software is highly recommended. I have used the RAR password unlocker to remove the password. It's proved to be helpful. You can also have a try!

    There are lots of password crack on the net, but i don't think it will success. Actually, there is no other way you can extract the true data from the file if you don't have a password, even you try to extract and success, it will give you unreadable ddata, so it is useless.

    You will need to get the password from somewhere, either by asking whoever created it, checking the website that had the link you downloaded it from or by using a password cracking application. There are cracking tools for RAR files on the net. Trial version generally work for passwords that are 3 characters or less. The fastest and best tools will cost you hundreds of dollars, so you need to ask yourself if it is worth it in both $$$ and time. Unless you have a VERY powerful computer, cracking the password could take an extremely long time.

      Agreed. You have Bad luck.

      You'd better give up because in many cases, it would spend more than 1,000 years to crack a decent rar password.

      If you are feeling lucky, you can try some rar password crackers on internet. Just google it. You can try a free one:

      It supports dictionary and brute-force, that's enough.

      Don't waste too much time. If it could not get password in a few hours, then you should give up and move on.

      By the way, I don't know whether is is legal to crack a rar file which is not owned by you.
