WinRAR Review

WinRAR is one of the best file compression and decompression programs. Its basic work format is RAR but it can also compress into ZIP and decompress the CAB, ARJ, LZH, TAR, GZ, ACE, UUE, BZ2, JAR, ISO, 7Z and Z files. WinRAR is capable of creating auto-extractable files and compressing separately in different parts. ¡Is the rar file opener par excellence!

With a simple and attractive graphic interface, which makes the management of the program easier to carry out the compression and decompression of files, WinRar download lets us directly add the files and folders we would like to have compressed and create the archive .rar or of other format you want. Moreover, one of the useful features is its auto-extractable files creation system which allows to create an executable .EXE file with automatic extraction of the compressed content into our hard drive. In addition, we will be able to configure the file so that once it is decompressed it will execute any of the files included in the compressed file directly. This feature is ideal in case we want to simplify the installation process of some program or simply for the convenience of having everything in one executable archive.

Another interesting option of this rar opener program is the possibility of dividing of a compressed file into various smaller parts what will make the process of sending archives through Internet much easier, as services like emails or on-line storage web pages use to have limitations of file size. The only we will need to do is download all the parts of the file and the program will decompress all the content from them.

Furthermore, thanks to its integration with the Windows explorer's system, after the installation some options of the contextual drop-down menu are added (right click over a file) what makes the manipulation of files considerably easier as there will be no need to run the program directly any more.

One of the most highlighted features of WinRAR, especially in the latest versions, is that it is prepared for taking the maximum out of the multi-core and multi-threaded operating systems, considering the actual implantation of the processors with 2-4-6 and including 8 and 12 threads of executing, and use all its power for compressing and decompressing, making the speed of the process dramatically higher.
