WinRAR Archiver is software used for compressing and extracting ZIP files of many formats like .rar. WinRAR Archiver is available as free download in full version and it's very easy to use with a simple interface. WinRAR is supported on Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows Vista operating systems. Support for Android was also released in 2015 when the use of RAR files started to increase so they decided to move to smartphone areas by also introducing it to iPhone and Linux. WinRAR also developed different format extensions called RAR4 and RAR5 which are more stable and have extended compatibility.
File archive's like WinRAR are very useful as many computers do not have sufficient space store big files so they are compressed and are reliable as they are safe and are not damaged or corrupted for future use. RAR files are really easy to create and takes less than 2 minutes depending on your CPU processing speed a quad core processor will do the work fast. There are no limits in archiving files it can be any big file from 10 to 50 gigabytes. Winrar does some of the same functions as PowerISO and Daemon Tools except it does not support burning and mounting of virtual discs onto the hard drive.
Extracting Files with WinRAR:
The latest version of Winrar has a new feature called 256-bit encryption to the files which uses a strong combination of passwords to protect a file by someone who does not have access to it. Unpacking ACE, ARJ, ZIP, 7Z, and ISO are possible now. The self-extracting file option comes in very handy when the other user does not know how to unzip a .rar folder. Later on it also released a stable release for MAC OS X because lots of users were demanding it because there is no such other software that can do this process simpler and faster like WinRAR does. UTF-8 is used for some files as so they are human readable.

Overall a great peace of software which saves all the files in NTFS instead of FAT 32 so modern day hard drives can read and edit it. There is an option in the software which can show a list of the recently processed files.
