    Exclamation I can not recover my own password - Please Help !


    Hi,

    I can not recover a password I put on a folder years ago.

    I have information on something called - rarcrack - but I am not pc savy. I checked repositories and something called - unrar-free - is installed, yet I have no clue how to use this. I can not find a graphical interface.

    I have found these commands which fly, fly real fast right over my head, however , these also don`t work.

    I am on hardy heron 8.04.

    This is the cryptic that lies before me :

    Download RarCrack

    wget http://superb-east.dl.sourceforge.ne...ck-0.2.tar.bz2

    Install RarCrack tar xvjf rarcrack-0.2.tar.bz2
    cd rarcrack-0.2

    sudo apt-get install libxml2-dev

    make ; sudo make install

    Using RarCrack:

    rarcrack your_encrypted_archive.ext [--threads thread_num] [--type rar|zip|7z]

    Please help , really clueless on this!!!!!!!

    Thanks for answering and trying to help out.

    I get error on the very first command after I copy and paste to the terminal.

    I will be a tough nut to crack - ( no pun intended ). I am a baby at linux ,even though I have been using it for 3 years now. However, as I said before I am pretty useless at computers.

    Sorry i can not give you any more info on this subject because of security reasons.
    Reason: Because you could have some else's computer and you need to hack into it.

    I am using and have alway`s used my pc. In any case I have a severe illness which has lasted 12 years and will eventually kill me.

    I`d like to see my loved one`s photos and treasured videos and because when I was younger I used some silly software to put some stupid password.

    Of course this could all be a load of rubbish and from my perspective it surely isn`t.

    Then again guy`s , it`s all freewill in the end that makes or breaks us.

    I do understand . LoL.

    I tried something similar to rarcrack, and after tweaking with a powerfull i7 and a GTX260 + cuda, the soft gave me an average time of crack around 800 years... You'll be quicker digging into your memory to find what kind of password your could have put.

    Though you have my sympathy for your illness, you are on your own with this.
    Please read and follow up with some testing of your own.
    It might work for you, it might not.

    That indicates the site doesn't exist any more or at least isn't being found at the moment. I'm afraid I Know nothing about rarcrack specifically.

    Hi rob,

    My, what a buggeration! Perhaps if you could give a more accurate indication of where on this planet you are, maybe someone more knowledgeable could pop round and try to help you some more. I am in Finland BTW, any help?

    Cheers - VP
