WinRAR is a data compression utility that completely supports RAR and ZIP archives and is able to unpack CAB, ARJ, LZH, TAR, GZ, ACE, UEE, BZ2, JAR, ISO, 7Z, Z archives. It consistently makes smaller archives than its competitors, hence saving more disk space and transmission costs.
WinRAR is an easy to use lightweight and flexible archiving utility that can unpack most archive formats. It can also compress to both RAR and ZIP. WinRAR offers a graphic interactive interface utilizing mouse and menus as well as the command line interface. WinRAR is easier to use than many other archives with the inclusion of a special “Wizard” mode which allows instant access to the basic archiving functions.
WinRAR’s interface has a simple interface. You can 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, bench marking and auto deletion of temp files.
