The speed of password tries could differ radically depending on the OS you use. There was an old forum post I read, I think concerning rarcrack, where they said the password tries varied from 100s of tries per second, to thousands depending on the OS.

John worked great, but unfortunately it won't work out in my case. I remembered the files I rar-ed had a strong password, so it would probably take years to brute force them. But I do have some older backups so it wasn't a disaster.
