WinRAR: A solid solution to compressing and archiving: WinRAR is a solid app that is used to compress data so the maximum space of storage is available for the system to run smoothly. The compression frees up the storage space by archiving the files that are not often used by user in a .rar archive. This also helps the users to send the large size of data through the internet. WinRAR comes with highly useful features with the main ones entailing strong compression of multimedia files, protection of archive from any potential damage, processing ZIP files along with archives other than .rar, scanning of archives for potential viruses, verification of authenticity, SFX i-e programmable self-extracting archives, providing support for multivolume archives, providing support for Unicode and NTFS, providing drag and drop facility, support for theme and multi-threads, folder tree panel and shell integration of Windows x64. Some of the features are discussed below for better understanding:
Zip files compatibility:
WinRAR is however primarily designed as an extractor of .rar files but the app also works compatibly with a wide range of file formats in terms of compression including the .zip files. If required, it can also be even set as the default app to be used with a zip file.
