Dear visitors,

We have a special giveaway offer for October. RARLAB company generously gave us 5 licenses for their latest version of super popular archiving software WinRAR v5.0

WinRAR is a 32-bit and 64-bit Windows version of the RAR Archiver, the powerful archiver and archives manager, which now supports multi-core-processors.

RAR files can usually compress content up to 30% faster than the ZIP files. The most important functions of WinRAR include extremely powerful document and multimedia file compression, damaged archive repair, authenticity verification, Unicode support and archive encryption.

WinRAR is available in over 40 different languages and runs on Windows 2003/XP/Vista/2008/Windows 7/Windows 8. Latest version of WinRAR archiver has numerous improvments over its predecessor that include better compatibility with Quad Core CPU's and better RAM utilization which result in super fast archiving speed.

What's new in version 5.0

RAR5

There is a new archive format. When using WinRAR 5.0, the user will not only have the existing RAR and ZIP compression options but also the new RAR5 archive format. An assortment of advanced algorithms has been implemented in addition to further optimization for use with modern software and hardware configurations. In summary, there is no better option for file compression than RAR5.

Security

“It's never been more important to feel confident your sensitive data is safe from unwanted access and tampering,” says Öncül Kaya, managing director of win.rar GmbH. WinRAR has always set the standard for quick and easy encryption and that's not going to seize anytime soon. With WinRAR 5.0, the RAR algorithm has been upgraded to include 256-bit AES encryption - further ensuring that the user’s data is fully protected. With RAR encryption, data is safe and sound. 

Compression

RAR archives have always provided a higher compression ratio than the competition. WinRAR 5.0 can now create larger dictionaries of up to 1 GB in the 64-bit version of WinRAR which leads to an even higher compression ratio than in previous versions.

Speed

Decompression speed has also been increased due to the introduction of a number of advanced algorithms optimizing the process. The increased of speed derives primarily from the use of multithreaded decompression on multi-core systems.

Further Additions to WinRAR 5.0

Based on the demand of many users the limitation of maximum archived file path length in RAR archive is changed from 260 to 2048 characters. Another major improvement is the new recovery record function which is based upon the Reed-Solomon error correction codes making archive recovery stronger and more efficient. In test scenarios with a 1 GB archive, WinRAR was able to fix 9 times more damages relative to the previous version. The file identification within RAR archives has been additionally enhanced by using BLAKE2sp hash as a file checksum. With BLAKE2 inclusion, one may definitively detect whether files are different or the same. While using CRC32, two different files may share the same value. This is not the case with BLAKE2.

Another tip: for all Windows-64-bit users, it is highly recommended to install the WinRAR 64-bit version. It is faster and offers the best available integration.

WinRAR’s compression speed in Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 and on any multi-core-system has been increased considerably.
