    About WinRAR 5.50;
    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 than many other archivers with the inclusion of a special "Wizard" mode which allows instant access to the basic archiving functions through a simple question and answer procedure. This avoids confusion in the early stages of use.

    WinRAR is compatible with all windows versions, ( 32 and 64 bit versions). You can download the free trial version (2 Mb ) from the official website. Installation doesn’t need any skills only you need to specify file associations in the last step. You can try the program for free for 40 days with full features available. After the trial is over, you need to purchase a license to continue using the program. The license key will be sent to you after purchase, simply extract it in the installation folder to activate the program

    The current version is 5.50 (August 14, 2017)

    Key Features:

    Archiving (Compression):

    One of the main features of WinRAR is creating smaller archives from any folders or files in a fast and easy way. This will free much space on your hard disk and save your working time. WinRAR supports all popular compression formats such as RAR, ZIP, CAB, TAR, ISO, 7-Zipand many more. WinRAR supports files and archives more than 4 GB in size especially the 64 bit version. It is ideal for multimedia files and will automatically recognizes and select the best compression method. You can deal with compressed files in many ways including the command line.

    In addition, you can easily split large sized archives into smaller sized files with specified volumes. This helps you to save them on several disks for example. It will also be easier to send via email

    WinRAR has many archiving options which lets you select save location, archive name, split size and encryption with password. In addition, there are many compression methods including normal (default), good, best, fast and fastest. You can also specify the compression profile, update mode, archive format and many advanced options, for example test archive, lock archive, delete after archiving and many more options. Other compression options are categorized under other tabs such as advanced features, backup options, recovery options, add comments to your archive, options, the option to add or exclude files to your archive, and time (for example file time to store and process)

    RAR5 Default Archive format:

    RAR5 is the latest version of RAR format that was added added in WinRAR 5.0. It is characterized by strong AES-256 encryption , more efficient recovery record, in addition to larger dictionary sizes. All WinRAR versions lower than 5.0 (WinRAR 4.2 and lower) can't handle RAR5 format.

    Extraction of compressed files:

    You can decompress any archive format supported by the program. This is done using many ways such as the right context menu items; or use the program main window to open the archive then extract here or extract to specific location.

    SFX tool: The program has a built-in feature which lets you easily create self-extracting archives using SFX tool. This allows you to send compressed files to any user with no archiving software needed to extract the contents.
