These days most websites and applications use salt based SHA256 hash generation to prevent it from being cracked easily using precomputed hash tables such as Rainbow Crack. In such cases, 'SHA256 Salted Hash Kracker' will help you to recover your lost password from salted SHA256 hash.
It uses dictionary based cracking method which makes the cracking operation simple and easier. By default small dictionary file is included but you can find good collection of password dictionaries (also called wordlist) here & here.
