    Most of the time there is software out there that can crack the password in a short amount of time if you know the length and perhaps some parts of the password. If it is a longer password and your computer isn't the fastest out there you may have to leave it running overnight, so it can try all the different combinations.

    I would try this one: … isting;pop

    It has the highest user ratings and the most user downloads.

      I use "Rar Password Recovery Magic" software to recover the password. The funny thing is that it says that the password is "nmu" of one rar file but the file could not open with that. Isn't it a fun!

      Is there any real way to recover password?

      To my knowledge the only thing you can do is brute force the password. There may be other solutions out there, but that Is the only way I have run across.
      Doing a more indepth search, it doesn't look like there are many good programs out there. hmm

    It also depends on WHAT is supposedly inside the RAR file you are trying to access. Many "free" download sites offer RAR files that require you to complete some task or sign up for some "free" service in order to obtain the password. Many of these are unfortunately big time scams. You never actually get a password, the file inside the RAR is just a beefed up .TXT document and you've given your personal information to some spam site, or worse, an identity thief. Some of these files are even trojan horse viruses. If the RAR is password protected, as a rule of thumb, delete it.
