Editors' Review

Mediafreeware's Free ZIP to RAR Converter is a great choice for users who want to convert zipped files into the RAR format with minimal fuss. It has few options and no Help file, but this program does one thing only: Convert files compressed in the standard ZIP format into WinRAR's proprietary RAR format. It's not only free but also fast and essentially foolproof.

Free ZIP to RAR's compact user interface is pared down to the essentials, and the program, itself, could hardly be easier to use: Browse to a zipped file you want to convert and select it. Then browse to a Destination folder and select it. The only option is Compression Method, explained in normal language: Store, which doesn't compress files; Normal, the default compression method; and Best, which uses the best compression method but is slowest. We browsed to a zipped program folder, selected it, and then created a Destination folder. We kept the default Normal compression level. We barely had time to wonder how the conversion would go because Free ZIP to RAR worked so fast. We successfully extracted our converted RAR files with our usual zip tool: Job well done.

If you need to convert ZIP files to RAR but don't have the time or patience for a full-featured archive solution, why go there? Free ZIP to RAR Converter does the job in less time than it takes to search through that all-in-one program's menus.
