RAR password recovery character by character?

Specs: Windows XP
Trying to recover the password for a WinRAR-file is nearly impossible. I understand that it takes forever, especially if the PW is quite long, an abstract word, and contains symbols. My question: Is there any method of going character by character? I don't know much about decryption, unfortunately. Such a method would help especially those people, who have some sort of idea of what their PW could be.
I created my RAR-file that I need the PW for only a year ago and have tried every PW I use that comes to my mind - nothing. If only I knew the first or first two character of it, I'm almost certain to solve the rest of it.

A password is a security feature, one that is very important to many people. Since this is an open forum that can be read by anyone, including those who wish to obtain illegal access to files, providing such advice here would be irresponsible.
