RAR password recovery
Of all formats, passwords to RAR 3.x/5.x archives are one of the toughest nuts to crack. Nonetheless, Passcovery Suite uses both CPU and GPU resources to open these files too.
|Encryption / Version||Password to Access|
|Rar||Previously (RAR - RAR 2.x)||-|
|AES (WinRAR 3.x - 5.x)||G|
|Zip||Classic (ZIP 2.0), Standard (stored, deflate, deflate64)||C/G*|
|Classic (ZIP 2.0), Standard (PPMd, WavPack, etc.)||-|
|AES (WinZip 9+), Standard (stored, deflate, deflate64)||C/G|
|AES (WinZip 9+), Standard (PPMd, WavPack, etc.)||C/G|
|*) Classic ZIP encryption can be accelerated with NVIDIA or AMD 5XXX and above GPUs.|
RAR 2.x encryption
The current version of Passcovery Suite does not support this format because it is used very rarely.
AES encryption (WinRAR 3.x - 5.x)
The new RAR3 / RAR5 archive format is more resilient than previous version. Beginning with WinRAR 3.x, the program now uses AES encryption in tandem with hundreds of hash iterations. This makes brute-forcing passwords much slower. This archive format is now one of the toughest to penetrate.
Passcovery Suite supports the current version of the RAR3/RAR5 format and recovers passwords for opening RAR files with maximum possible performance – both at the CPU level and on NVIDIA and AMD GPUs.
