    I saw a pdf cracker, Which removes the password ( 256 bit encrypted) within seconds. When a pdf cracker cracks the password in seconds, why don't a RAR password cracker takes hours to crack a file. If we found out where a RAR file stores the password exactly we can easily break that too?? Any ideas?

    I think it's got something to do with the compression algorithm that makes it takes longer.

    Then try a hex editor, maybe you are lucky and see the password.
