    "It save my archives."

    February 21, 2010  |   By gtgene


    Repairs corrupt zip and rar archives. works well with archives that have foreign character filenames and paths. These results have been well worth the price of the license,which is just one time.


    If there is a downside,I have not found it. Has worked well all these years.


    I had downloaded an rar archive that could not be opened. No way to contact the original owner. Since winrar had a way to repair this archive,I gave it a try and the repaired archive opened. Turned out it was one bad file holding things up,and I was happy to get the others. That alone was worth the license. I'll mention it can also repair zip archives. I have not come across anymore corrupted archives,but the ability to handle character sets like Japanese is also a good feature. Since then many good archive utilities have come down the pike,but until I have a need for something better I'll stick with a proven winrar :)
