  • Ctrl+A keyboard shortcut selects the entire text in WinRAR comment window.
  • If -idn switch is used together with -t or -df in console RAR when archiving, it additionally disables 'Deleting <filename>' or 'Testing <filename>' messages, normally issued by these switches. Also -idn disables folder creation messages when extracting a file to non-existing folder.
  • WinRAR and ZIP SFX module refuse to extract contents of ZIP SFX archives if ZIP central directory is resided after beginning of Authenticode digital signature. It is done to prevent possible attacks with inclusion of ZIP archive into signature body.

WinRAR is an advanced data compression utility that supports a wide array of formats, including RAR, ZIP, CAB, ARJ, LZH, ACE, TAR, GZip, UUE, ISO, BZIP2, Z, and 7-Zip. It enables you to create, organize, and manage archives in a comfortable and quick manner.

Quality compression and multiple disk spanning

The application proposes an advanced approach to compression, which entails creating small archives to save disk space as well as to enable faster file sharing. Audio and graphics files benefit from a special archiving algorithm that doesn't sacrifice quality.

It's also possible to split archives into several smaller volumes to spread them across multiple devices and easily transfer them onto other computers, which is particularly practical when attempting to compress very large files.

Advanced features for compression and decompression

The available security tools are designed to password-protect archives and optionally encrypt file names to add an extra layer of safety. Meanwhile, the application can be asked to verify archive integrity as well as attempt repairing damaged or corrupt archives.

Expert users can configure settings concerning the preferred compression method, dictionary size, file update mode, self-extracting archives, recovery records in case of data loss, archive locking, NTFS symbolic and hard links, and many other aspects.

Files can be backed up before compiling them into archives while virus scans can be executed before extracting files from the archives so that you don’t expose your computer to any risks whatsoever.

The industry-standard in compression

During our tests, WinRAR delivered excellent results on file compression and archive extraction regarding speed and file size. On the other hand, it is likely to hamper system resources usage when dealing with time-consuming tasks carried out on very large files, especially if you are relying on weaker hardware configurations.

To wrap it up, WinRAR remains the industry-standard in the compression category. It tackles popular compression formats via an approachable interface and a complex engine that can easily be accessed from the context menu.
