WinRAR is a shareware file archiver and data compression utility developed by Eugene Roshal, and first released in autumn of 1993. It is one of the few applications that is able tocreate RAR archives natively, because the encoding method is held to be proprietary.
WinRAR supports the following features:
- Complete support for RAR (WinRAR native conversion format) and ZIP archives, and unpacking of ARJ, LZH, TAR, GZ, ACE, UUE, BZ2, JAR, ISO, EXE, 7z, and Z archives.
- Multithreaded compression
- The ability to create self-extracting and multi-volume (split) archives.
- Data redundancy is provided via recovery records and recovery volumes, allowingreconstruction of damaged archives.
- Support for advanced NTFS file system options and Unicode in file names.
- Optional archive encryption using AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) with a 128-bit key.
- WinRAR did not store NTFS “Compressed” attribute, when creating RAR archives
- WinRAR crashed in command line mode if @filelist parameter was present and ‘filelist’ did not exist. This bug affected only WinRAR.exe, not RAR.exe
- if -x*\somefolder\* exclusion mask was specified when archiving and if name of current folder contained ‘somefolder’, WinRAR excluded all files and stopped creating an archive
- GUI self-extracting archives did not work in Windows Preinstallation Environment (Windows PE).
