Question WinRAR Password Recovery

Is there a safe/easy way to recover files which have been zipped & password protected using WinRAR ? I did a quick Google but that mostly returned links to software that I'm not sure I want to risk installing
If not I'm not bothered as I've managed to survive without them for 10+ years, I'm not even sure what the documents are now

It it a RAR file or a ZIP file created with WinRAR?

Not sure, but I think it was a RAR file created & compressed with WinRAR

ZIP files are dead easy to unlock if you have an unencrypted version of one of the files in the archive. I don't know about RAR files though.

I think all the rar crackers are brute force based.

Still. It's like when you lose you house
or car keys: this is when you find out how
secure it is.

I think it's probably a letter & number combination so I doubt I'll ever remember or guess it.
