    is there anyway to recover a rar password without doing a dictionary attack on it? and whats the difference between that and a bruteforce attack?

    Assuming it's something you rar'd up and password protected and forgot your own password, a dictionary attack will go through the dictionary, which is great if the password is dog or baseball or something like that, but if it's some other language or has special characters or is spelt B@$eBaL1, you need a brute force attack.

    wonderful, and will probably kill your processor?
