One of the most common and difficult problems with working with information is the space it occupies. The modern age, technology and the amount of information every individual deals with, can be overwhelming.
WinRAR enables you to compress a large number of files, shrinking the amount of information into a single and much smaller folder. As a result, your computer or a mobile device has more valuable space left, and it gives you, as a user, a sense of more control and efficiency in dealing with your previous information.
Later on, when you need to, you can also use WinRAR to open, extract and work with your files, quickly and conveniently. It also offers many additional functions which include managing your documents, e-mail attachments and different kind of multimedia electronic files, which are known to take up a lot of space. Making your e-mail attachments smaller means you will be able to send and receive them more quickly and password protection will offer extra security when needed.
WinRAR also allows for your multiple files to be archived into smaller folders and saved in either a RAR or a ZIP format. You will be able to split documents or multimedia files that would be too large to save on a USB drive as a whole, and only take with you the single piece of information that you actually need. This function also applies to sharing your information online, making the entire process much easier and simple. WinRAR really makes the difference in the practicality of everyday information sharing.
Furthermore, the WinRAR has an option of self-extracting files. It takes only a double click for your recipient to be able to open the file you sent, without needing a specific software. And the list of possibilities of this great software just goes on and on.
In conclusion, WinRAR really stands out as a very useful compression tool. It offers safety and stability which is crucial when it comes to saving and sharing information. And it keeps adding improvements, creating and extracting multi-volume files without a flaw.
On top of it all, it is important to mention that WinRAR has integrated compression and backup programs as well as a recovery record function which makes it possible for you to repair your files in case of damage or any kind of data loss. WinRAR really is a state of the art compression tool which will soon make all the other programs useless, too complicated and obsolete.
WinRAR 5.50 version brings several improvements as of now the RAR 5.0 archive format becomes the default. RAR 4 archiving format can still be used from archiving dialog or by using a -ma4 command line switch.
The latest release of WinRAR also brings the possibility to use a master password that can be used to encrypt saved password records and protect them from unauthorized access.
The new version uses a new data format for the password organizer, so passwords stored in the “Organize passwords” dialog are not readable by older versions. It does not affect archive encryption formats and encrypted archives are compatible with previous WinRAR version.
In addition, the usability of decompression dialog of password protected archives has been improved. If a wrong password has been entered when unpacking an encrypted RAR5 archive, WinRAR proposes now to enter a valid password for the same file instead of aborting extraction.
Further security enhancements include default AES-256 CTR mode encryption which is significantly more secure than ZIP 2.0 legacy encryption algorithm.
WINRAR 5.50 now supports LZ and ZIPX file formats created by Lzip compressor and those file formats have now be added to the list of supported associations.
The complete list of all improvements and bug fixes can be found HERE.
