Winrar is one of the most popular programs on the software market which allows you to compress data significantly and greatly reduce its size thanks to using the most advanced compression technologies and algorithms. In addition, the program offers a huge amount of integrated functions. With the help of WinRar you can not only compress and decompress data but also perform a lot of other operations. The program allows you, for example, to split archive into several smaller parts, set a password to the archive, create a self-extracting archive, and a lot of others.

The program is very intuitive and extremely easy to use. Its interface is very convenient and handy. You can use the program by using its user interface or the right click of the mouse because it integrates itself into the Windows explorer. With the help of this explorer, you can compress and decompress files, send files via emails, and so on.

The Main Features of the Program- Winrar currently supports all well-known and popular compression and decompression formats, for example, RAR, RAR 5, ZIP, 7-ZIP, ACE, ARJ, BZ2, CAB, GZIP, JAR, LZH, TAR, UUE, XZ and Z. The first three formats are specially designed for compressing data and the rest for decompressing it.

Compression and Decompression- Winrar offers three different formats to compress files- RAR, RAR5 and ZIP. You can select any of them and use any of compression methods offered by the program, for example, normal, good, best, and so on.

It is a very easy task to add files to archive. All you need to do is to choose files for compressing and select the desired compression method. Unexperienced users can take full advantage of a special Wizard which will help them to archive files quickly and reliably.

Before compressing files, you can apply a lot of different options, for example, you have the possibility to select the desired compression method and dictionary size, split a very large archive into several smaller parts by using special predefined parameters (for example, 5 MB, 700 MB, 4,481 MB, and so on), set a password to your archive by using the most advanced encryption algorithms (for example, AES-128, AES-256, and so on), specify the update mode settings (for example, you can add new files to the archive and replace old ones, synchronize archive content, and so on) and archiving options (for example, you can create a self-extracting or solid archive, test archived files or lock archive, and so on). Shortly saying, Winrar offers everything (and I can say without any exaggeration, more than everything) for convenient and reliable working with archives.

WinRar supports a lot of different formats for decompressing files so you will be able any compressed files easily using the program.

Additional Tools- WinRar also offers a lot of useful tools, for example, Virus Scan (with the help of this tool you can scan archived files before opening them. All you need to do is to specify the path to your installed antivirus application and define some scanner parameters. That is all.

The program will scan archives for viruses and disinfect them before they harm your computer); Convert Archives (if you want to convert your archives from one compression format to another, you can take full advantage of this tool. With the help of it, you will be able to convert, for example, RAR archive to ZIP one, and so on. Additionally, you can also specify the desired compression and conversion methods); Repair Archive (with the help of this module you have the possibility to repair damaged RAR and ZIP archives. WinRar will try to fix damaged area in the archive. Of course, the chance of repairing archive is not very high but it is recommended to use this tool and try to recover the archive); Convert Archive to SFX (i.e. you can convert standard archives to self-extracting ones); Find Files (this tool allows you to find any files on your computer quickly. All you need to do is to specify what to find and where to find and WinRar will find all needed files fast); Test Archived Files 9this tool allows you to test archives after creation for integrity. All you need is to select the archive to test and click on the “Test” button on the toolbar. WinRar will display all found errors in the diagnostic message if they are found); Repair Archive (with the help of this module you have the possibility to repair damaged RAR and ZIP archives. WinRar will try to fix damaged area in the archive.

Of course, the chance of repairing archive is not very high but it is recommended to use this tool and try to recover the archive), Protect Archive from Damage (this tool allows you to add a recovery record to the archive which will help you to repair it if it is damaged).

In conclusion, it should be said that WinrRar was, is, and, I think that it will be the best archiver on the software market. And there are a lot reasons why it is so popular. Firstly, it is very compact and versatile and it offers a wide range of compression settings parameters; secondly, it has got the best and the most efficient compression algorithms; thirdly, it contains a lot of additional useful tools, and so on.
