2 RAR Password Recovery Method

Choose an offensive strategy, then press the Next button to proceed. Before using the Brute-force attack approach, it is advised to use the Dictionary attack method first. The Mask attack is the most effective option if you can remember a portion of the password.
For a successful recovery if you choose a dictionary assault, you must specify a decent dictionary. Dictionary attacks typically succeed because a lot of individuals tend to select passwords that are brief, comprise only one word from a dictionary, or contain predictable word variations. You can use the built-in dictionary or one of your choosing.
Set the minimum and maximum length of the password as well as the symbols that will be searched if you choose a brute-force assault. To keep the necessary time reasonable, start by trying short passwords that use the entire character set. Then, you can lengthen the password while reducing the character set.

If you already know some of the symbols or characters in the password, the Mask attack is frequently utilised. To reduce the number of password combinations that must be checked, you can define a mask. For instance, you are aware that the password has six characters and begins with “qwer.” Therefore, “qwer?” should be entered as the Password mask.
To begin the recovery procedure, click Next. When your password has been found, the application makes it plain what happened.
