WinRAR is a powerful archive manager. It can backup your data and reduce the size of email attachments, decompress RAR, ZIP and other files downloaded from Internet and create new archives in RAR and ZIP file format. You can try WinRAR before buy, its trial version is available in downloads. Older software including older WinRAR versions is not able to decompress RAR 5.0 archives, so if you plan to send an archive to other people, it is necessary to take the compatibility issue into consideration. You can select “RAR” instead of “RAR5″ option in archiving dialog to create RAR 4.x archives compatible with previous WinRAR versions.

WinRAR benefits
• Using WinRAR puts you ahead of the crowd when it comes to compression by consistently making smaller archives than the competition, saving disk space and transmission costs.

• WinRAR offers a graphic interactive interface utilizing mouse and menus as well as the command line interface.
• When you purchase WinRAR license you are buying a license to the complete technology, no need to purchase add-ons to create self-extracting files, it’s all included.

WinRAR ~ What’s new in Version 5.60
   1. We updated WinRAR graphics.

      We are grateful to and
      designers participated in this endeavor and proud to announce that
      WinRAR uses the new icon set prepared by Aditya Nugraha Putra

      Previous WinRAR icons are available as interface theme here:
   2. "Repair" command efficiency is improved for recovery record protected
      RAR5 archives. Now it can detect deletions and insertions of unlimited
      size also as shuffled data including data taken from several recovery
      record protected archives and merged into a single file in arbitrary
   3. "Turn PC off when done" archiving option is changed to "When done"
      drop down list, so you can turn off, hibernate or sleep your PC
      after completing archiving.

   4. Use -ioff or -ioff1 command line switch to turn PC off,
      -ioff2 to hibernate and -ioff3 to sleep your PC after completing
      an operation.

   5. If encoding of comment file specified in -z switch is not
      defined with -sc switch, RAR attempts to detect UTF-8, UTF-16LE
      and UTF-16BE encodings based on the byte order mask and data
      validity tests.

   6. WinRAR attempts to detect ANSI, OEM and UTF-8 encodings of
      ZIP archive comments automatically.
   7. "Internal viewer/Use DOS encoding" option in "Settings/Viewer"
      is replaced with "Internal viewer/Autodetect encoding".
      If "Autodetect encoding" is enabled, the internal viewer attempts
      to detect ANSI (Windows), OEM (DOS), UTF-8 and UTF-16 encodings.

   8. Normally Windows Explorer context menu contains only extraction
      commands if single archive has been right clicked. You can override
      this by specifying one or more space separated masks in "Always display
      archiving items for" option in Settings/Integration/Context menu items",
      so archiving commands are always displayed for these file types
      even if file was recognized as archive. If you wish both archiving
      and extraction commands present for all archives, place "*" here.
   9. SFX module "SetupCode" command accepts an optional integer parameter
      allowing to control mapping of setup program and SFX own error codes.
      It is also accessible as "Exit code adjustment" option
      in "Advanced SFX options/Setup" dialog.
  10. New "Show more information" WinRAR command line -im switch.
      It can be used with "t" command to issue a message also in case of
      successful archive test result. Without this switch "t" command
      completes silently if no errors are found.

      This switch is applicable only to WinRAR.exe and ignored by console

  11. If a wrong password is entered when unpacking an encrypted file
      in ZIP archive, WinRAR proposes to enter a valid password
      for same file again instead of aborting extraction.

  12. If a wrong password is entered when opening or unpacking RAR archive
      with encrypted file names, WinRAR proposes to enter a valid password
      again instead of aborting the operation. Previous versions already
      did so for RAR archives with encrypted file data, but aborted
      for archives with file name encryption.

  13. WinRAR recognizes GZIP files with arbitrary data preceding
      an actual GZIP archive, such as .scexe firmware files.

  14. @filelist parameter can be specified in "Files to add" field of
      archiving dialog. In this case WinRAR will attempt the list of archiving
      files from 'filelist' file, which should be the plain text, one file
      name per line.

  15. Info dialog:
      a) compression ratio graph is updated;

      b) "Names and data" is displayed in "Encryption" field for
         archives with encrypted file names.

  16. Full archive name is displayed if mouse pointer is placed over
      an archive name in the operation progress window. It can be useful
      if archive name is lengthy and does not fit to available window space.

  17. If -ts1 switch is used with -u or -f, file time comparison is performed
      with 1 second precision. Previosuly in such case we could wrongly treat
      an adding file as newer than archived just because we compared the high
      precision adding file time against the low precision archived file time.

  18. "Update" and "Fresh" commands ('u' and 'f' in the command line mode)
      quit immediately if no files are to be updated. Previously they created
      a temporary archive before quitting when updating archives with recovery
      record or quick open information.

  19. Prompt is issued after creating 500 volumes from WinRAR GUI shell,
      so user can continue or quit further archiving. It is done to prevent
      creating many thousands of volumes in case of wrongly entered
      volume size.

  20. WinRAR uses megabytes instead of bytes as default units for volume size
      field in the archiving dialog.

  21. "Repair" command issues "Recovery record is corrupt" message
      after repairing RAR5 archive containing a broken recovery record.
      Previously such message was issued only by "Test" command
      and "Repair" handled most of recovery record damages silently.

  22. Bugs fixed:

      a) fixed potential security issues when processing corrupt
         RAR archives;
      b) non-English characters in TAR files with PAX extended headers
         were not displayed correctly;

      c) "rar x arcname.rar .." command unpacked files to current folder
         instead of its parent;

      d) pasting files from Windows Explorer to archive opened in WinRAR
         blocked further copy and paste operations in Explorer until
         archiving was finished;

      e) SFX module issued "The specified password is incorrect" message
         infinitely not prompting for correct password once a wrong password
         was entered;

      f) folders time was always set when extracting ZIP archives even if
         "File time" options in the extraction dialog were turned off;

      g) if "Delete archive: Always" was selected when extracting
         and user pressed "Cancel" in the file overwrite or password prompt,
         an archive could be deleted even after cancelling extraction
         for .zip and .7z formats.
