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.

"Nightmare to uninstall"

March 03, 2015  |  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

What's new in version 5.21
  • "Drag and drop context menu" options in "Settings/Integration/ Context menu items" dialog allow to disable WinRAR archiving and extraction commands in context menu displayed after dragging and dropping files with right mouse button.
  • If winrar.ini file is present in the same folder as WinRAR installer, winrar.ini will be copied to WinRAR program folder after completing installation.
  • While previous versions could produce RAR5 volumes of slightly smaller than requested size sometimes, such situation is less likely now. In most cases volume size equals to specified by user.
  • Now by default WinRAR skips symbolic links with absolute paths in link target when extracting. You can enable creating such links with "Allow absolute paths in symbolic links" option on "Advanced" page of extraction dialog or with -ola command line switch.
