WinRAR beta offers 32-bit and 64-bit Windows versions of RAR Archiver, the powerful archiver and archive manager. RAR files can usually compress content 8 to 15 percent more than ZIP or ARJ files.
WinRAR's main features include strong general and multimedia compression, the ability to process non-RAR archive formats, long filename support, programmable self-extracting archives (SFX), damaged-archive repair, authenticity verification, embedded file comments, and encryption.
Unicode is supported in archive file names, allowing non-English file names to be handled painlessly. You can manipulate the parameters of many archives at once, and view a volume sequence as a single archive. It also features extraction-only support for BZIP2, JAR (Java ARchive), and ACE 2.0 formats. You can use full file paths in the exclude lists.
Version 3.90 beta 5 fixes the bugs "Convert" command could fail if original and resulting archives were multivolume and name of original archive included DBCS characters and WinRAR did not add "Extract to folder\" item to Windows context menus for ZIP archives if Windows Compressed Folders was active.
