Windows 7: How to recover my .rar file password on windows OS?

How to recover my .rar file password on windows OS?

Hi everyone,

I have a book about C++ Programming that two years ago solved all of its chapters exercises successfully. Then saved all of these source codes into a folder, added it to a .rar file by WinRAR tool with a specific password and saved that file into my USB flash.

Now unfortunately I forgot the password, I remember that password was something like "The C++ Resolvents" or "The resolvents of C++ exercises" or ...with upper or lower cases.
I know there are some tools to recover .rar file passwords such as RAR_Password_Unlocker and so on, but:

1- It takes too long time (days or perhaps months!) to recover that long password and my machine should be On during this time!!!
2- I think they do not support spaces between password, while I'm sure there are at least two or three spaces in my password.

Does any one know is there a quick(er) way to recover my password?
Thanks in advance!

No way I know of. The password crackers use either a dictionary or brute force attack and a 8 character password can take years to discover.

I don't know what effort you have put forth in attempting to find a solution, but a Google search for "winrar password lost" appears to have some promising results.

The following link is one example;

Yeah, I know such kind of recovery of password encrypted .rar files, but look please:
1- my forgotten password is not a word but a sentence (e.g., The Resolvents of C++ Exercises)
2- It has space between its words.
Any chosen tool should surely support that above two specifications and result in the less than 24 hours.
My first goal of posting this issue here was to finding a way to use the distributed systems! When many machines work on that password, logically they result in very sooner than only one machine. But how to use such systems!?

If I count right that is a 30 character password, decades to recover. Spaces make it even more difficult.

No, unfortunately. Only in my weak mind. And you see the result of remembering this mind

Just a suggestion for the future. Because I only have 3 working brain cells I keep all my passwords in a rotary index and stored in a safe place.
