There's programs that will search for lost passwords. You would definitely

have to use brute force to find the password. But for RAR or WinRAR I wouldn't even waste my time. The algorithm is to tough! So if your still interested in trying. Good luck... You'll need it!

As Hawk said, the RAR file encryption is very strong. Your average desktop computer will only brute force about 20 passes a second for a RAR file (compared to about 1.2 million for a zip).

Sorry to say this but if you don't know the pass, you're not likely to find it if its beyond 4 or 5 chars. Even thats going to take a while!

also it helps to know which kind of file it is...if its say a torrent file just do a google search based on the site it was d/l'd from...

some sites make you reg with them to view passwords,etc but theres also some sites that will list the pass's so you dont have to reg...

good luck

thank u all for your help with this problem i did manage to find a program to try and crack the password but it could not do it so i think it best to just forget about it but once again thank u all for your help
