    Is there anyway of cracking open passworded .rar and .zip files? Please let me know if there is a software to do that.
    Thanks in advance! :)

    From my understanding of the rules this topic is allowed. Zenspeaks is not asking about serials, keys, or ways to bypass software licensing. Am I misreading that rule?

    as much as I don't liek the idea of being able to do that, or cracking software for that matter, I'd have to agree that this is allowed by the forum rules

    In that case; feel free to offer your advice to the original poster.

    However, my personal view is that if the file is passworded, it was not intended to be opened by anybody to whom the password was not provided.

    But I suppose that's just me.

    I agree and would ask the OP for further clarification as to what this file is and how they came to have it.

    Yes, you certainly wouldn't want to help anyone without first doing a full background check. It might turn out that they have an unpaid traffic ticket, a bad credit rating, or lost passwords.

    Submitting his tax records, bank account and credit card numbers, a list of known associates and the length and girth of his penis, should get the process off the ground.

    Please stand by so that MacRumors can help you further.

    There's no decent Mac software for password recovery. It's a glaring hole in the market. There are dozens of programs for Windows, have your buddies run them for you.
