RAR is a general purpose archiving and compression program competing with/replacing programs such as PKZip, ARJ, and others. It offers significantly improved compression ratios, easier use and a cheaper price as well as supporting long file names, disk spanning, and self-extracting file creation.

WinRAR has an option for file recovery records to protect against bit rot and transmission errors, unlike ZIP and 7z (7-zip) file formats.
Yes, a person can use MultiPAR to create PAR2 recovery files, but they aren't integrated into the archive file like RAR file format.
WinRAR works great. I purchased a licence over 10 years ago and it still works for the latest version of WinRAR.
Reviewing 5.11 Beta 1 (Aug 7, 2014)
Great app, fast, solid. I go through my phases where I switch between this and 7zip. 7zip is equally good, and not as ugly. Giving it 4 stars because of the hideous UI, but as far as pure functionality and resource consumption, it's among the best.
Reviewing 5.00 Beta 7 (Jul 15, 2013)
For me, five stars to the excellent winrar 5!
Reviewing 5.00 Beta 4 (Jun 3, 2013)
It's the same Winrar with new 'file format 5' and 'new recovery record' - secure and stable ever!
Reviewing 4.20 (Jul 20, 2012)
