Hi there, i am wanting to upload a very confidential file and have used winrar to make a package. I have enabled password protection using numbers and letters, i have locked the file and also encrypted the file.

Can these files be cracked open or am i safe ?

Any file can be opened by an expert. Unless you have the spooks from MI6/CIA/MOSSAD chasing your tail or your name is Mr.O.Bin Laden, you will be OK.
