Forget about having to learn the quirks of a separate archive management utility. MagicRAR offers you the convenience of obviousness! Look inside all of your archives as if they were ordinary folders in Windows Explorer. It doesn’t get any easier than this.
Use your favorite habits to manage archives: Copy and paste, or drag and drop to seamlessly extract/compress all plug-in supported formats. Double-clicking any file inside an archive opens it. You may even update the archive with the new file when you save your changes!
Safely Triples Windows Compression
MagicRAR Drive Press 4.0 safely compresses your entire disk using proven NTFS compression. Unlike built-in Windows compression, which is buggy and fails to compress a majority of your hard disk, MagicRAR Drive Press 4.0 compresses three times smaller and faster. All your files and settings are preserved and can be accessed normally, on-the-fly. Of course, MagicRAR Drive Press 4.0 safely decompresses your drive if you want to go back for any reason.
Secure E-mail Compression, Attachment Preview
MagicRAR’s Outlook Add-In integrates with every version of Microsoft(R) Outlook(TM) to auto-magically compress your email attachments when you click the “Send” button. Toggle compression on/off with the single click of the mouse, choose a different compression format, and even tweak compression algorithm parameters right within Outlook. Encrypt your data with 256 bit AES secure encryption and protect your sensitive data from prying eyes.
MagicRAR’s Outlook Integration does not stop with just attachment compression. Up to 61 different types of archive formats may be previewed when received as email attachments in Outlook. Double-click any file inside an archive preview to open it!
Intelligent Software That Works For You
Does your archive management utility create two levels of subfolders when you choose the “Extract to Subfolders” option? MagicRAR is smarter, creating a parent folder only when it determines the archive doesn’t already contain all of its files inside a master folder. Do you need to ensure no compressed files are left behind after extracting? Choose the “Recursive Extract” option and watch MagicRAR sift through all archives nested inside one another for you.

Intelligent “Extract to Subfolder”:
Skips Unneeded Folder Creation
Ever noticed how other archive utilities keep on creating extra folders when extracting, forcing you to repeatedly clean up after themselves?
MagicRAR’s “Extract to Subfolders” refuses to create redundant folders when the files you’re extracting are already located inside a single archive subfolder. That’s the magic of intelligent design.
Extract Multiple Nested Archives in a Single Pass
Some archives you download can be really complex. Save yourself the acrobatics of countless mouse right-clicks and the challenge of sifting through a puzzle of files and folders.
