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.
- Fixed a crash and security vulnerability when unpacking corrupt RAR4 archives
- "Extract to a specified folder" command was missing in context menu in WinRAR file list when right clicking an archive

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)
After deleted the most useful function "delete archive after extract" 1 star uptill we get back this fuct again
