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!!!!!!!

Welcome to LinuxQuestions.

Even though this is your own system asking how to crack it is against the rules.

And therefore I am closing this thread. If you have any questions please contact a moderator
