    Re: What is .rar?

    To quote Wikipedia, "RAR is a proprietary file format for data compression and archiving, developed by Eugene Roshal (hence the name RAR: Roshal ARchive)". RAR achieves greater compression than .zip archives, but less programmes support it.

    WinRAR is the "official" programme to open the files, but it is shareware. On the other hand, 7-Zip can open .rar files just fine and is open source free software.

    Which one is better is a matter of opinion and not worth debating as anyone interested can just try them both out and decide for themselves.

    I've been using the excellent izarc for years.

    It does pretty much every format and is freeware, easy to use.



    Also this topic should be in the general discussion forum.

    Word up on IZArc! Although, don't use the GUI to extract things. It ignores where folders are, usually breaking everything.

    But using it from the right-click menu is fine.

    Usually I install 7zip and IZArc.
