Re: Best Free .rar converter

WinRAR is a 32-bit Windows version of RAR Archiver, an archiver and archive manager. RAR files can usually compress content by 8 percent to 15 percent more than ZIP files can. WinRAR's main features include strong general and multimedia compression, the ability to process non-RAR archive formats, ZIP compression and decompression, support for long filenames, programmable self-extracting archives (SFX), repair of damaged archives, authenticity verification, embedded file comments, and encryption. Unicode is supported in archive filenames, allowing non-English filenames to be handled painlessly. You can manipulate the parameters of many archives at once and view a volume sequence as a single archive. WinRAR can convert other archive formats to RAR and search for specified text and files in archives.

ZipWave is an easy to use visual archive utility with support for 15-plus popular formats (ZIP, CAB, ARJ, RAR, LHA, TAR, GZ, ACE, JAR, ZOO, UUE, and so on). It features functions such as an archive explorer (arborescence), the option to browse archives displaying a preview of graphics files (in 30-plus well-known formats), an archive converter, a search engine, support for batch processing (great to extract and install patchs or games for examples), advanced manipulations (create, move, delete, add, rename, and so on), content printing, multidisk spanning, self-extracting archive creation, installation of the content of an archive, content exporting (TXT, HTML, and CSV formats are supported), image and HTML integrated viewers, password encryption, support for antivirus programs, Windows shell integration, MAPI support (send archive via email), complete documentation, the option to edit multiple archives at the same time, and drag-and-drop technology. ZipWave is fine for beginners but advanced enough for pros to use, as well. (screen interface and documentation are available in both English and French). "ZipWave is a compression utility that blows the socks off WinZip". "ZipWave is an exceptional archiving tool" (RocketDownload) more user-friendly than Winzip better than WinZip".

You can now handle archives directly from Windows Explorer due to the shell integration including drag-and-drop facility and cascaded context menus. WinRAR features wizards for beginners and command line interface for advanced users. It can handle non RAR archives (7-Zip, ACE, ARJ, BZ2, CAB, GZ, ISO, JAR, LZH, TAR, UUE, Z, GZip) management, solid archiving which can raise compression ratio by 10% - 50% over more common methods, particularly when packing a large number of small, similar files.

Using WinRAR you can create multivolume archives, self-extracting archives (also multivolume) using the default or optional SFX modules. You can use a lot of service functions, such as encryption, archive comments, error logging, etc. The program has an inbuilt viewer for viewing the content of text files within archives.
