Editors' Review

+

WinRAR (64-bit) allows you to open, create, and manage various types of compressed files through its intuitive and streamlined interface. This program offers a full set of features for manipulating and managing compressed files, and it works smoothly and efficiently.

Pros

Intuitive interface: When you attempt to open a ZIP or RAR file, this app automatically takes over and presents the contents of the compressed file, so that you can immediately access them. From this main interface window, you can then manage the archive by adding to it, repairing it, or protecting it, all using the tools readily available across the top of the interface. Even novice users will find their way around this program quite quickly.

Quick create or add: In addition to letting you open compressed files, WinRAR also allows you to create new ones or add to existing archives. You can do this either by dragging and dropping the files in, or by adding them using the controls across the top of the interface.

Cons

64-bit systems only: This particular version of WinRAR is for 64-bit systems only. If you have a 32-bit system, you can download a version optimized for that configuration. And if you're not sure, the 32-bit version will work on both 64-bit and 32-bit machines.

Bottom Line

WinRAR is at the top of the list when it comes to programs of this type. It's hard to go too long without having to open some type of compressed file that Windows can't handle, and so it's worth checking this app out. It's free to try for 40 days, but after that, you'll have to purchase a license for $29 to continue using it.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of WinRAR (64-bit) 5.01.

"Does everything needed, except"

December 19, 2015

2015-12-19 16:32:08

 |  Version: WinRAR (64-bit) 5.30

Pros

Why do I have to enter 10 characters of a pro? I suppose they limit bad reviews, because a pro comment is required.

Cons

If you get the password wrong, the program doesn't realize that until after it spends 8min to undo all the rars - then at the end, it says: invalid password.

This thing couldn't figure that out before it wasted my time to realize I put an Oh instead of a Zero.

Summary

Needs improvements, but it's a good start.

"Nightmare to uninstall"

March 03, 2015  |  By Ciderspace

2015-03-03 05:48:58  |  By Ciderspace

 |  Version: WinRAR (64-bit) 5.21

Pros

It opens rar files?

Cons

Program does not show up in Windows uninstall. No uninstall software.

Summary

Very hard to uninstall. Not visible in the normal uninstall control panel.

Next option to delete it. It somehow keeps itself active, then you can not delete the file map. So make sure it is not opened in a file folder or running somewhere. Then permanent delete: shift + del
