    I would like to thank RAR LAB for sponsoring 7 licenses (perpetual) of WinRAR version 5.70 (which includes some minor upgrade to 5.71 and 5.72 etc..) to our forum members and also a big thank to our member and reviewer Tarekma7 for writing this review .
    This giveaway starts from the 25th.March 2019 and will end on 15th. April 2019.

    is the Windows version of RAR Archiver, the powerful archiver and archive manager. WinRAR can create compressed files in both RAR and ZIP formats. It can unpack most known file formats such as RAR, ZIP, ISO, CAB, 7ZIP and many more. The program was first developed by Eugene Roshal (developer) and Alexander Roshal (Distributor) in 1995.

    It is the most popular archiving software with more than 500 million users of the program worldwide. It is an essential archiver software that all users need. Moreover, it is compatible with all platforms including windows, Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS X and Android.

    RAR files can, in most cases, contain content up to 30 percent more effectively compressed than within ZIP files. The most notable functions of WinRAR include very powerful document and multimedia file compression, file encryption, processing of other archive formats, programmable self-extracting (SFX) archives, damaged archive repair and Unicode support.


    In this review I will try to first explain the main features of the program then discuss in more details the important new features in version 5.70

    User Interface:


    List of features and drop-down menus:


    WinRAR has two views available:

    Archive view: WinRAR lets you easily browse all files and folders of all archives present on your computer.

    File view: The files and folders can be easily browsed using the program similar to your explorer

    Change the program UI Look:

    For those who like to change program skin, just download many themes from the official website and open it in WinRAR to install. Installed themes can be selected in the "Options/Themes" WinRAR menu to enjoy using the program in your preferred skin. You can download the themes here:


    You can even create your own theme and use it, follow the guide present here:


    You can also use WinRAR logos created by other users; please visit here:


    What is the formats supported by the program?

    The main formats supported by the program are RAR, RAR4 and ZIP. The program can handle many other formats so that you don’t need to install other applications. These include 7Z, ARJ, BZ2, CAB, GZ, ISO, JAR, LZH, TAR, UUE, XZ, Z files. RAR files offer better compression, better self-extraction multi volume, recovery record and lock mode. ZIP format is more popular, fast and can be opened without external programs


    You can add any files or folders to an archive form. After you select the files or folders, simply right click and choose “add to archive” from the context menu. You can also open WinRAR and browse to the file or folder then select add to archive or use the built-in wizards.

    The archive formats supported include RAR, RAR4 and ZIP. Note that to create archives larger than 4 GB, you need to use NTFS, as older file systems do not support such large files.

    Archive name and Parameters:

    These are grouped under many buttons in the pop-up dialogue. These include general, advanced, options, files, backup, time and comment

    I have used this software earlier.
    I was small and very fast.
    It can handle many file formats, including iso files.

    So, I like to use it again if I get one free license.

    From its introduction, Winrar soon became a classic and trusted program for working with archives. Due to being very efficient in use it makes life easier for all kinds of file and archive operations.

    Over the years more and more useful features have been added to make it even greater. I would very much like the chance to win a licence for the latest version of this mainstay program. Thanks!

    I fount it surprising that RAR5 compression is allot better than LZMA2, also WinRAR is very customizable, loads of great themes out there, I personally like the Windows 10 v2 theme by Simplex Designs

    I like the multi volume split ability which makes large files easier to upload into cloud. RAR5 also has decent compression ratio for many files types.
