Editors' Review

Free RAR to ZIP Converter switches your file's format quickly, but it doesn't do itself any favors with its layout. In addition to looking and feeling incredibly dated, it's bogged down with add-on programs. However, if you can avoid those, it does its job flawlessly.

This program only converts RAR archives to ZIP files, so don't expect to turn them back if you need to. When you're trying to install the program, it sends four different toolbars and add-on programs at you. If you don't opt out, these programs can take over your browser, change your homepage, and add obnoxious toolbars, so be careful. The program, itself, looks very blocky and dated, kind of like it was made for Windows XP and never updated. That helps it move quickly, though, as conversions never took more than a minute during testing -- even conversions of larger files. You can even increase the level of compression on your files to save more space on your hard drive. Even when you up the compression to "Best," Free RAR to ZIP Converter still doesn't take very long to finish.

Free RAR to ZIP Converter isn't much to look at and its installation is loaded with traps, but it does a perfectly fine job with your files at the end of the day. If you know how to dodge add-on programs and don't care about how a program looks, you won't find many better performers when it comes to switching compression styles. This converter is impressively quick and powerful where it matters most.

"Tool that saved my time"

March 11, 2014  |  By Skyeryland

 |  Version: Free RAR to ZIP Converter 1.0

Pros

I call this tool a time saving tool. I had to convert multiple RAR files to ZIP files. I found this tool online and downloaded it to try it. And it really helped me. With just a few clicks here and there I could finish the conversion process in minutes. I had huge files also to be converted and to my surprise this tool converted them extremely fast. The advanced options such as altering the level of compression also helped me save some space.

Cons

Nice tool but wish it had multiple conversions at once. It would be more helpful for people like me who have large conversions to handle.

"Very quick RAR to ZIP Converter"

March 07, 2014  |  By Caitlynmcconnan

 |  Version: Free RAR to ZIP Converter 1.0

Pros

This is an incredibly fast RAR to ZIP Converter. It converts single files or multiple files at the same fast pace; just takes a minute or two for it to complete the conversion. Another interesting and convenient feature is the built-in guide. This is especially helpful to those who are not that comfortable using a PC. And finally, it is possible to compress the rar files more before conversion and this saves a lot of place, especially for people like me has lots of junk saved. In short, a program that is quick and can be used by anybody

Cons

No problems with it

"A nice to use tool"

February 26, 2014  |  By AucoinJulie

 |  Version: Free RAR to ZIP Converter 1.0

Pros

A simple tool to use, it is okay to have this tool on your home PC or laptop. The Free RAR to ZIP converter allows you to change the format of your files. The conversion takes place extremely fast irrespective of the file(s) size. The more compressed the files are, the more users save space on their systems.

Since it is a free to download too, there is no harm in trying it.

Cons

It would have been better if there were no unnecessary installations of programs along with the tool.

"Different software + Adware"

February 21, 2014  |  By ankmiike

 |  Version: Free RAR to ZIP Converter 1.0

Pros

None whatsoever.

Cons

(I cant even believe that I'm writing such a con, since cnet is supposed to be a reputable service)
I got a PDF to JPG converter instead of a RAR to ZIP converter.
+Hell a lot of Adware.

Summary

The page says "Free RAR to ZIP Converter", the exe file downloaded says "rartozip_setup.exe", but the software installed is "PDF to JPG Converter" with more than a handful of Adware.
Save your computer, and save yourself some headache and close this tab at once.
