Click the ADD Icon
ADVANCED | Push the SET PASSWORD Button
Check the SHOW PASSWORD box, so U can see what U typed and also copy/paste it to wherever U need it, such as on yer post. Now only one box will be open to enter the password. COPY/PASTE it to a txt file. I call mine WinRAR_Password.txt. Do this IMMEDIATELY afer entering it, before closing that window, or U may be very sorry later.
Enter the password. It is CASE SENSITIVE. If the password is 8 or more alpha-numeric characters, no one will be able to hack it. Unless they own a super-computer. Avoid using words that are found in dictionaries.
Check the encrypt file names box. That way, even if some nasty person obtains yer Rar file, they won’t know what is in it, especially if the name U give the rar file is “Grandma_pix.rar” or whatever.
Back to GENERAL tab | PROFILES button | Save Current Settings to a New Profile
Enter the name of this profile. For example if the passwd is ht*p://www.tool-tricks.blogspot.com, U might name the profile tool-trick. Only U will see this profile name. It does not go into the rar files made from it.
Do NOTHING more, do NOT set this as default profile.
Click OK | Click OK again.
Now U have a Passworded Profile.
