winrar password error


Baseband Member
Aloha I am trying to use winrar 3.93 to compress a few word and excel documents for work but I am having some problems. I when in to options > settings > compression > create default. Once there I set the compression to "storage", set the password, then the file names to be encrypted.

Some files when I try to unrar them do not ask for a password but next to the name of the file is an Astrix showing that there is a password that is needed. Some files give me a "wrong password?" error without ever even asking me for the password.

Any ideas as to what is going on?
