WinRAR is possibly the most common name in the industry of Archive Management software alongside WinZip. In my opinion, based on performance and simplicity it supersedes many similar softwares. It offers many functions in a simple interface. WinRAR is the first software to introduce the .rar file which has become very much popular like .zip and .7z. It provides complete support for RAR and ZIP archives and is able to unpack a number of common archive types.
- WinRAR introduces an original compression algorithm. It is highly optimized for multimedia data and provides high compression ratios on executable files, object libraries, large text files, etc.
- WinRAR supports files and archives up to 8 exabytes in size, provided that file and operating system support that too. The number of archived files is unlimited for all practical purposes.
- WinRAR provides complete support for RAR and ZIP archives and is capable of extracting CAB, ARJ, LZH, TAR, GZ, ACE, UUE, BZ2, JAR, ISO, Z, 7Z archives.
- With WinRAR you can encrypt archives with industry standard AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) with a key of 128 bits.
- NTFS file security and data streams are supported in WinRAR.
- WinRAR is capable of creating a ‘solid’ archive, which can raise the compression ratio by 10% – 50% over more common methods, particularly when packing large numbers of small files.
- WinRAR allows you to create and change SFX archives using default and external SFX modules. You can even create a multi-volume archive as SFX.
- Recovery record and recovery volumes in WinRAR allow to reconstruct even physically damaged archives.
- WinRAR offers to add archive comment. Comments are displayed while the archive is being processed. Comment length is limited to 62000 bytes.
- Small installer size (1.57 Mb) which is not digitally signed. The download is available for Windows, Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS X and also localized versions.
- Smooth and clean installation. At the end, it will ask you to set to associate files and set customizations.
- 40 days no nag trial is available. After that you may continue using the software or see a nag screen every time.
- WinRAR offers a classic but graphically interactive interface utilizing mouse and menus as well as the command line interface.
- WinRAR is easier to use than many other archivers with the inclusion of a special “Wizard” mode which allows instant access to the basic archiving functions through a simple question and answer procedure.
- When you purchase WinRAR license you are buying a license to the complete technology, no need to purchase add-ons to create self-extracting files, it’s all included.
- WinRAR features are constantly being developed by a team of experts.
