    WinRAR is a powerful windows archiver software that can create compressed files in both RAR and ZIP formats. It can also unpack most known file formats such as RAR, ZIP, ISO, CAB, 7ZIP and many more.

    WinRAR is easier to use when compared to other archivers available on the web. You can do many operations using the right context menu. You can also select the context menu options you need to add.

    The built-in special "Wizard" mode uses a simple question and answer procedure to allow instant access to the basic archiving functions. WinRAR offers you the benefit of archive encryption using AES with a key of 256 bits. This adds to the security of your data and archives

    You can use the program in your own language and change the user interface using many themes available.



    The current version is 6.00 final, released on 07/12/2020


    System Requirements:

    Love Winrar. Being using it for years. I mainly use the command line to automate archiving. The use of profiles (which not all other archivers have) is a huge plus.
    The new "ignore" option is certainly useful. Before this I had to manually copy over whatever had been already decompressed, save it, and cancel the whole operation while not being able to access whatever was left.

    I'm in. Best balance between speed and compression ratio as compared to 7-zip and other compressors. Plus, it can do AES256 encryption which I use to safeguard my TurboTax archives each year.

    Also, if you are in the "scene", when you try to extract the split archives you know WinRAR is the only one that can do it without a hassle

    I've found WinRAR very useful in file de/compression processes, and it's important to keep up with the latest versions. I'm using an earlier version, and this one is 'hot off the press', so I'd like to try and get this copy; thanks for the opportunity!

    I love WinRAR, best looking and best preforming archiver (I love the Windows 10v2 theme.) I also love the fact that you can use it without registering, yes you have to close a window every time you open, but it will never stop working after a per-determined trial period.

    Hi, thanks for the giveaway, I need WINRAR to create self-extracting multi-volume archives.
    //WinRAR can work with Unicode (exclusive feature) & supports Unicode file names.
    //Supports drag-and-drop functionality (Drag a folder/file from File explorer and drop it into WinRAR to add it to archive)
    //WinRAR can show encrypted or compressed NTFS files in color.
    //WinRAR shows and allows to compress hidden folders/files easily without changing any system settings.
