is a trialware file archiver utility for Windows. It can create and view archives in RAR or ZIP file formats, and unpack numerous archive file formats. To enable the user to test the integrity of archives, WinRAR embeds CRC32 or BLAKE2 checksums for each file in each archive. WinRAR supports creating encrypted, multi-part and self-extracting archives.
WinRAR is a Windows-only app. The author has also released an Android app called “RAR for Android”, and command-line utilities called “RAR” and “UNRAR” (widely released since autumn of 1993), available for macOS, Linux, FreeBSD, Windows, and MS-DOS.
WinRAR can backup your data and reduce size of email attachments, decompress RAR, ZIP and other files downloaded from Internet and create new archives in RAR and ZIP file format. The archiver puts you ahead of the crowd when it comes to compression. By consistently creating smaller archives, WinRAR is often faster than the competition. This will save you disc space, transmission costs AND valuable working time as well.
WinRAR is ideal for multimedia files. It automatically recognizes and selects the best compression method. Because of all these great features there is no better way to compress files for efficient and secure file transfer, faster e-mail transmission and well organized data storage.
