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.

What's new in version 5.40
  • "Name encoding" submenu in "Options" menu allows to select encoding for archived file names. This selection affects archive browsing and extraction commands. You can use the Ctrl+E keyboard shortcut to access this menu quickly. It can be useful when unpacking an archive without Unicode file names, for example, unpacking a zip file with Chinese archived names in Windows, with Russian specified as a language for non-Unicode programs.
  • Usability enhancements, like dragging folders from folder tree panel and dropping them to other programs or Desktop to copy or unpack them have been added. You can drag the archive icon in tree panel root to unpack the entire archive.
  • Furthermore, the maximum comment length for RAR archives has been increased from 64 to 256 KB. Since SFX script commands are stored in archive comment, it allows now a longer main and license text in an SFX archive.
  • As you might know you can secure your archives with Recovery Records. If an archive has a Recovery Record, it can be repaired even after having been damaged due to a defect on a disc or other data loss. The ZIP format does not support Recovery Records. Now with the new version WinRAR 5.40 Recovery Records (.rev files) are present in the same folder as usual RAR volumes and archive test command verifies .rev contents after completing the test of .rar files.
  • Previously "Synchronize archive contents" update mode (-as command line switch) aborted if some of archiving folders could not be read. Now WinRAR continues performing the operation and preserves archived files matching unreadable folders.
