Ok here is the issue. When we had our daughter I took pretty intimate pictures of her being delivered and videos. When I put them on my computer I password locked the pics in winrar archive. Well now me and my wife can not remember the password and can not access these pics. Shes pretty peeved and I have tried everything i know and cant get into them. Has anyone ever done this and know how I can get into them again? Please let me know. This is very important to us. Thanks.

You can google for programs that can get into it for you although you might have to pay for it. Other than that, I dont think there is any other way. What I usually do with these sensitive files is hide them within other folders which I will easily remember where they are yet difficult for anyone else to find. Either that or write down the password somewhere.

Be very careful with what you download, as there are many sites that use this to introduce a trojan into your system. You would be surprised how many people look for password cracker.
They do exist, from legitimate sources, for legitimate reasons.

I suggest next time you use PGP to encrypt your pictures.

I tried the first and third one. I ll give the 2nd one a try.
I even told the wife what the password was and we both forgot. But I ll give the second one a shot and see if it works. Thanks.
