If your memory seems not to be in good shape and you urgently need to decompress that RAR archive containing critical data, you may want to give it another shot, but this time around accompanied by a capable software utility.
Atom TechSoft for RAR Password Recovery claims to fit the description, being able to unlock your RAR files even if you remember chunks of the password or, worse, nothing at all.
First of all, you should know that the program features a simplistic user interface, with all the controls being bundled in the main window.
There is little you are asked to do except for selecting the RAR archive you want to regain access to and opting for one of the two available recovery methods.
In case you have no clues whatsoever as to the password’s character set, the dictionary attack is the way to go since it analyzes all the alternatives without any help. Still, users should expect a rather lengthy process, given the resources the program must allocate to such a task.
On the other hand, if you can remember whether the character set is in lower or upper case and contains digits or special symbols, the program will no longer have to start with a clean slate. In this case, a brute force attack would be more suitable, letting you also indicate a minimum and maximum password length.
At the bottom of the main window, you can see the analysis’ progress in real time, with the possibility of stopping the scan at any point if you change your mind.
All in all, Atom TechSoft for RAR Password Recovery is a lightweight application that can handle your locked archives by putting at your disposal two different retrieval methods. Considering that it can manipulate any kinds of passwords and be of help even though you cannot provide it with hints, the app could come in handy to anyone.
