More about WinRAR

WinRAR provides the following features:

  • creating archives in RAR, RAR5 or ZIP format;
  • compressing documents before archiving, reducing their size with full preservation of their contents (the degree of compression can be set in the settings);
  • full unpacking and extraction of the selected items (with or without saving a copy in the archive - you may choose in the settings);
  • view data without their preliminary unpacking;
  • encrypt files in order to secure them, set passwords for unpacking or viewing;
  • work with large files (many other archivers have size limitations);
  • create multivolume files that can be self-extracting even on devices that do not have any archivers installed);
  • recover damaged files;
  • use the automatic separation into volumes (convenient for large volumes);
  • using the function of removing the original file after archiving (it allows you to save space and not to leave unnecessary waste on your computer);
  • working with the files inside the archive (renaming, moving by folders, deleting, etc.);
  • customize the archives to use them by default.

Winrar offers a free trial during the first 40 days of use, then offers to pay a subscription, but continues to work without it. It is considered one of the most popular archivers because of its ease of use, many variable settings, and wide range of features.
