    If I've already made an RAR archive, but didn't set a password on it,
    can I go back and add one? Can't see how to do it.

    Using v.3.70

    Bundle it in a folder & re-RAR it.

    OK, put the password onto a "notepad", make a folder called RAR2,
    place your zipped RAR & password note into your RAR2 folder & RAR it.
    (far too many "RAR"'s here) Now you have it all together in one
    bundled RAR. :)
