Editors' Review

+

WinRAR is a lightweight, flexible, and easy-to-use archiving utility that can unpack most archive formats, as well as compress to both RAR and ZIP. Free to try for 40 days ($29 for single license), WinRAR is a top dog in the compression category.

WinRAR's interface is about as simple as it gets. Start creating (or add to) an archive by dragging and dropping your files into the interface or by browsing through the Folder Tree side panel (when enabled). From there, the most common functions are laid out in the form of colorful, mostly intuitive icons along the top, which can all be customized by downloading themes from the company's Web site. You can Add files to, Extract, Test, Delete, or even Repair archives right from the main interface. Drop-down menus house the program's more advanced features, including self-extracting archives, archive locking, benchmarking, and autodeletion of temp files.

With WinRAR, both creating and unpacking archives is blazingly fast. And according to WinRAR's developers, the most recent version of the program takes advantage of multicore processors to achieve even faster compressions rates, depending on your hardware profile. It is worth noting, however, that these speed boosts do use up a significant chunk of RAM (approximately 120 MB). Compression ratios vary depending on file type, but in general seem on par with or better than other archiving programs.

Overall, WinRAR is a winner because of its speed, simple interface, flexibility with file formats, and powerful advanced features. If you're looking for a one-stop archiving shop, look no further.

"De selected the garbage, still installed, never loaded!"

February 08, 2013  |  By gmcjetpilot

 |  Version: WinRAR (64-bit) 5.0

Pros

NONE it is a bloated piece of junk. It will install a TON of tool bars and garbage add-on's, even if you deselect it. THEN it never loads the program, hangs. I have a Lenovo i7, Window 7 64 bit OS.... so it's not my computer.

Cons

This is NOT rocket science to compress and extract files in RAR. There are too many FREE options to deal with this garbage filled software.

Summary

Don't waste your time..... I could put up with some of this for shareware but this is NOT share ware. I have sent $100's to shareware vendors of software I like and use... These folks are trying to go for the GOLD... greedy.

What's new in version 5.0
With WinRAR 5.0 we have implemented a variety of innovations further boosting the performance of WinRAR. The new RAR5 archive format includes many improvements of existing features of WinRAR and creates RAR5 files with a higher compression ratio and significant speed gain relative to the competition. Furthermore the RAR algortythm RAR algorithm has been upgraded to include 256-bit AES encryption - further ensuring that all saved data is fully protected. WinRAR 5.0 can now create larger dictionaries of up to 1 GB in the 64-bit version of WinRAR which leads to an even higher compression ratio than in previous versions. Decompression speed has also been increased due to the introduction of a number of advanced algorithms optimizing the process. The increased of speed derives primarily from the use of multithreaded decompression on multi-core systems.
