How To Unlock Locked WinRAR Archives (SFX/EXE) ?

in Tips 'n' Tricks

WinRAR allows archive creators to lock an .rar archive or SFX executable (.exe) in order to protect the RAR packed or packaged archive from modification and change. When the WinRAR archive is locked, everybody cannot change the content in the archive, be it files, folders, comments, SFX options and modules.

WinRAR Unlock unlocks locked WinRAR archive (including SFX) allowing you to modify the content freely. Through some patching of few bytes, you are able to modify your archive with ease.

WinRAR Unlock is a freeware with no payment required.

i used this software for a winrar file and it got patched and stored as a .bak file. but how do i extract the contacts of the file after this?

Just delete the “.bak” extension and leave just the “.rar” that should solve it.

you guys are a bunch of idiots. this doesn’t take the password off …what this winrar unlock does is this: you download a .rar file with NO password but sometimes theres a bunch of unless stuff inside and you want to delete them before you extract them but you CANT because its been locked .. this takes that lock off and then you are able to extract or delete whatever you want from inside. dumbasses

If you actually understand what this is, and are looking to “UNLOCK” an archive, (as in SFX) this thing is FRIGGIN SWEET!!!! Thank you!!!

To clarify, this is not a password tool. Its the most simple Archive unlock tool I’ve ever seen!!!
