It happened several days ago, when I bought this my new laptop and moved all my files from my old one. Some of my friends suggested me to pack things up and archive in .RAR format. At that time, I was thinking I should encrypt my RAR file with password. So, I did it. But a few days later, when I started to open the encrypted file, I failed to remember the password. Now I am not able to open it, but it is really important for me. Anyone who could help me hack my forgotten RAR password would be greatly appreciated.

Option 3: Dictionary Attack
Applicable Condition: Nowadays, there are many powerful dictionaries for password crack, not only includes the English words, but also the common password combinations with an amount of tens of thousands. But you should know that the larger the dictionary is, the longer the cracking time is.
What is more, you can set your own dictionary, if you are the one tend to use a limited range of symbols in the password, such as nickname, birthday, telephone numbers, important days or anything similar. Input them in text document as each line, and save it.
Operation: Check the third option - Dictionary Attack in the first tab, import the dictionary in txt format in third dictionary tab, the default dictionary is also available, and then start password cracking.
