    The open source solution to batch extraction and password recovery of RAR compressed archives. Handles password protected, multi-part and encrypted archives with ease. Portable, no installation required,no registry polluting,minimal memory footprint.

    It' s purpose is threefold :
    • 1. Extracts .RAR archives and can list information embedded inside the archives
    • 2. Using multiple passwords to protect your files? It frees you from having to remember each individual password by keeping a single password depository so letting you choose as many passwords as needed.
    • 3. Have you forgotten the password of a password protected archive? Can retrieve the password by using the dictionary approach. Give it a wordlist and it will attempt all words against the archive. Once it retrieves the password it continues with extracting the archive

    Advantages:

    Unrar Extract and Recover does not reinvent the wheel since protecting the file with a password and unlocking the file by using a password is built-in functionality of the WinRar software. The difference is that Unrar Extract and Recover uses this functionality to introduce batch job capabilities. Instead of going through every file and typing your password to unlock it, the application does that for you by retrieving and using your password from within a plain text file. It even goes one step beyond since after unlocking the file it continues with extraction of its contents.

    It is portable, requires no installation; just requires unrar.dll to be in the System directory, no Windows registry polluting, interacts with raw Win32 API, lightweight, minimal memory footprint, batch extraction

    Rationale behind this software release
    • Do you compress your files to save storage space? Then, when about to extract your files you don' t want or have time to go through one by one manually?
    • Use fire-and-forget functionality. Just point to the directory holding the archives and the software will automatically extract them each one in its own subdirectory (it also handles multipart archives gracefully), with no user intervention. Thus it saves you the time from the dull task of going through the files manually so you can use your precious time productively.
    • Furthermore you compress and protect your valuable data/files by using a password?
    • Unrar Extract and Recover frees you from having to remember each individual password and its correlation to the file(s) , by keeping a single password depository so letting you choose as many passwords as needed. All you have to do is keep your passwords into one file (password_file.txt), essentially called a pass-wordlist, and when about to extract just feed the program this wordlist and it will go through each password one by one against all files until it finds the correct one; then it continues with extraction as expected.
    • Another use of this software is that of the password recovery. Have you forgotten the password of a password protected archive?
    • Can retrieve the password by using the dictionary approach. Give it a wordlist with your common passwords and it will attempt all words against the archive. Once it retrieves the password it continues with extracting the archive

    Aimed at businesses/individuals who compress their valuable data by using RAR compression to save space and are concerned with security thus they also protect those compressed archives with passwords.
    This software allows them to use multiple passwords by not having to remember each password individually and saves them the personal time required for extracting that data by utilizing just CPU time.
