The biggest compression lab in the world

ZIP and RAR are the most used compression formats in the world. The first is one of the most well-known; even the latest versions of Windows support ZIP. But RAR is the format of choice for WinRAR and, as such, ensure that the files are openable from any PC with a compressed file manager.
WinRAR doesn’t just read RAR files, but can also decompress compressed files in any format. This list of compatible files is endless, but some worthy of note are RAR, ZIMP, TAR, ACE, 7Z, ISO amongst others.
Whether it's to save space on your hard drive or external drives, download using a download manager, make backup copies, or send large files via email, WinRAR fits the bill to perfection.
