RAR files are compressed archive files containing one or more other files. These files also support password-protection, encrypting the files for greater security. While there is no method to extract the password from a RAR file, many programs are designed to automatically try a large amount of possible passwords on the RAR file until one works. Recover a rar password by downloading and running a third-party password-recovery tool.
one of best choice is RAR Password recovery 5.0 which proved to be an effective way to recover lost or forgotten rar file passwords.for more info:
