WinRAR is a really fast and efficient file compressor

Winrar is a free application that offers us the possibility to compress and unpack any file in a very easy and comfortable way and it doesn’t take a long time to do it. The program integrates itself perfectly in the right-button menu, so you will be able to create RAR and ZIP files with no problems, just right-clicking the file -or group of files- and select the ‘Add to archive’ option.

No matter the format of the compressed file, you’ll be able to unpack more than 40 different formats, including CAB, ARJ, LZH, TAR, GZ, ACE, UUE, BZ2, JAR, ISO, RAR, Zip or 7Z, you’ll only have to double-click its icon and the content of the file will appear on the screen, then choose whether to unpack it or run the files without having to unpack it previously. Furthermore, Winrar offers a very good compression ratio above the average, which means the files you compress using it will be smaller than when compressed using other programs. Finally, you can also protect files using Rijndael (AES-128) encryption system, digital signature or protect it against modifications.

Winrar is probably the best compression tool out there. The high quantity of options, as well as its versatility and easiness of use, make it a must-have for any user.

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.

Notes:
 
What’s new:
– Added support for Gz archives with large archive comments Previously the extraction command failed to unpack gz archives if comment size exceeded 16 KB
– Archive comments in gz archives are displayed in the comment window and recognized by “Show information” command Large comments are shown partially Previous versions didn’t display Gzip comments
– Reserved device names followed by file extension, such as auxtxt, are extracted as is in Windows 11 even without “Allow potentially incompatible names” option or -oni command line switch Unlike previous Windows versions, Windows 11 treats such names as usual files Device names without extension, such as aux, still require these options to be unpacked as is regardless of Windows version
– Switch -mes can be also used to suppress the password prompt and abort when adding files to encrypted solid archive
– Additional measures to prevent extracting insecure links are implemented

Fixed:
– if password exceeding 127 characters was entered when unpacking an encrypted archive with console RAR, text after 127th character could be erroneously recognized as user’s input by different prompts issued later;
– wrong archived file time could be displayed in overwrite prompt when extracting a file from ZIP archive It happened if such archive included extended file times and was created in another time zone It didn’t affect the actual file time, which was set properly upon extraction
