Hi All,

Up until now I have been using unrarx to extract archive files, then I came across an archive.rar file which is password protected.
The unrarx app doesnt seem to prompt any password dialog so that i can enter the password to extract the files.

My question:
- are there an alternative apps to unrarx that can extract passworded rar files?

"unarchiver" is a good one too.

i think under one of the menu options in either program you can tell the app to use a specific password prior to opening the file.

I have many rars from different archives with the same password. Is there an app that will allow me to enter one password and open up several different archives with it?

OK so very late to the party lol!!!

But unrarX does have a password facility you know.


Just click on the white 'tab' in the upper right of the window when you open the program.

password, test, browse and extract should appear
