Recovering a WinRAR Password

I wanted to extract a old file that I some how decided at the time to password protect (no it’s not porn):eek::. I’ve tried one WinRAR password recovery tool it found the password, but it wasn’t the right password.:nono: I was hoping someone could help ?:slight_smile:

I need to install Linux to crack a password, is there not a way I can do this in windows that is guaranteed to work ?

Solved - As in stupid me can’t recovery it so I had to delete it :frowning:

you need ubuntu or debian but you can easily install them on a VM
