We would like to thank WinRAR Marketing 
for sponsoring us the giveaway prizes


Overview


WinRAR is the Windows version of RAR archiver -- a powerful compression tool allowing the user to create, manage and control archive files. This compression software offers a full list of quality ZIP features and supports a host of extraction formats. The user can compress files into RAR 5, RAR 4, and ZIP archive formats and can extract a number of different archives. WinRAR supports the extraction of several archive formats which in addition to RAR and ZIP, includes RAR, ZIP, 7Z,  ARJ, BZ2, CAB, GZ, ISO, JAR, LZ, LZH, TAR, UUE, XZ, Z, ZIPX and 001. WinRAR's most user-friendly aspects are the drag-and-drop feature and the Archive Wizard. WinRAR automatically detects the type of files you are compressing and adjusts the compression rate accordingly. WinRAR uses a traditional display involving menu trees that lets you go to your archive folder and drag the files or folder into WinRAR. WinRAR is officially distributed by win.rar GmbH

There are several versions of RAR, for a number of operating environments: Windows, Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS X.

There are two (2) versions of RAR for Windows: 

(1) Version with graphical user interface - WinRAR.exe; 
This is the RAR archiver version for Windows with full graphical interface. See "The WinRAR Interface below". 
 
(2) Command line console (text mode) version - Rar.exe.
This is also RAR version for Windows, but it only supports the command line text mode interface. This console RAR version is convenient, when the user needs to call RAR from BAT and CMD files or to use it at the command prompt. The console RAR version supports a larger number of command line switches and commands comparing to WinRAR. 

Note: WinRAR and WinRAR self-extracting modules require Windows XP SP3 or later.

ARCHIVING FILES

Archiving file/s in Windows Explorer 
The fastest way to archive files/folders in Windows Explorer is via WinRAR shell integration. User can enable this function via "Options > Settings > Integration > Shell Integration -- (check) "Integrate WinRAR into shell". With this enabled user just needs to select whatever he needs to archive and right-click. The context menu items will show the WinRAR shell integration. Items given are: (a) "Add to archive…” (2) "Add to <archive name>, (3) Compress and Email..., and (4) Compress to <archive name> and email. The context menu items can be added to or removed via "Options > Settings > Integration > Shell Integration -- (click) "Context menu items...” See images below.

Drag and drop support

"Drag and Drop" function is only applicable "if" "Integrate WinRAR into shell" is enabled (checked). Dropping files is available only into RAR and ZIP archives. There are several ways to use "drag and drop" feature in WinRAR. See example images below.

SFX archives

An SFX or SelF-eXtracting archive is an archive, merged with an "executable module". Extraction of contents is triggered by executing the SFX archive file. Thus no external program is necessary to extract the contents of an SFX archive, (the SFX archive is enough to execute itself). Nevertheless WinRAR can work with SFX archives as with any other archives, so if the user does not want to run a received SFX archive (for safety purposes), he may use WinRAR to view or extract its contents. All SFX archives usually have ".exe" extension as any other executable file. There are several ways to create an SFX archives in WinRAR. See example images below.

EXTRACTING FILES

Extracting file/s in Windows Explorer 
Extracting files in Windows Explorer will be far easier with WinRAR shell integration enabled. Thus it is advisable that the user enable this function via "Options > Settings > Integration > Shell Integration -- (check) "Integrate WinRAR into shell". There are several ways to extract contents of an archive in WinRAR. See examples below.

TEST ARCHIVE FILE

To test an existing archive inside Windows Explorer, the user just needs to right-click on the archive and select the "Test archive" in the context menu. If no errors are detected, WinRAR will display a corresponding message. If there are errors found, WinRAR displays the data via a "Diagnostic message" window.

VIEW CONTENTS OF AN ARCHIVE

To "view" the files/contents inside an archive you can either use Main menu > Command > View File, or click on the "View" button in the WinRAR window or via keyboard shortcut -- Alt+V. 

In the "View file" command, WinRAR shows the contents of the file under the cursor in the "internal viewer" window regardless of the file contents or configuration settings, but if the user were to press "Enter" on a file name, several different results are possible. If the file under the cursor is an archive, WinRAR will open it and display its contents, otherwise further actions depend upon them settings specified in "Viewer settings dialog box".

DELETING CONTENTS OF AN ARCHIVE

The "Delete" command in WinRAR shell state is accessible in both "file management mode" and "archive management mode" but the user should be wary of the differences between deleting in both states.

FIND FILES

The "Find" command in WinRAR shell is accessible in both states (file management mode and archive management mode). User can execute "Find files" via the toolbar button > "Find", or "Tools > Find files". Using "Find files" dialog it is possible to search for files contained the specified string either in the opened archive or in selected folders or disks.

INFO / SHOW INFORMATION OF AN ARCHIVE

The "Info" button is the "show information" command and can also be accessed via the Main menu > Tools > Show Information, or via the "Info" button in the toolbar of WinRAR window.

VirusScan

Although you’re main security setup should be configured to scan all files to be safe. There are instances that you may need to scan within WinRAR shell “archive management mode". To scan an archive for viruses user can either click "VirusScan" via the toolbar button of WinRAR window or via "Tools > Scan archive for viruses"

REPAIR AN ARCHIVE

WinRAR is able to repair only RAR and ZIP archives. WinRAR tries to detect the type of the archive automatically using archive data and extension, but user also may set an archive type manually. The source archive is not changed and result of operation is stored into a new archive, which is named "fixed.arcname.rar" or "rebuilt.arcname.rar", where 'arcname' is the original archive name. Success of "Repair" operation depends on the archive type and type and size of damaged area. Chance of successful RAR archive repair is significantly higher if it has the recovery record. If archive does not contain the recovery record, chances are lower for solid archives and no repair is possible for archives with encrypted file names. See images below.

Latest stable version is WinRAR version 5.71 (April 29, 2019)

What's New:
Quote: 
  • 1. "Convert archives" command:
    a) improved performance when processing a lot of small archives in Windows 10

    b) fixed memory leaks which could lead to excessive memory use when converting to ZIP format.

    2. Corrupt ZIP archive processing:
    a) "Repair" command replaces packed and unpacked file sizes stored in local file header with sizes from central directory if local header sizes look invalid;

    b) file extraction is stopped at unpacked size stored in ZIP headers even if available packed data allows further extraction. It is done to prevent unexpected hard drive space usage.

    3. Ctrl+C allows to abort RAR "l" command quickly.
    In previous versions it could take several seconds until list command stopped.

"Share a fond memory of your Dad/Father (that you’ll never forget) and WHY do you want to win a WinRAR lifetime license?"

My fond/beloved memory of my father's promise to me:

My father, born in the Smokey Mountains of East Tennessee, came from utter poverty. ...His alcoholic "hobo" father deserted him, along with his mother and younger sister, when he was a small boy. ...My father dropped out of school in the 8th grade to work in a chair factory loading trucks in order to feed his mother and sister. When he was 18 he married my mother and I was born a year later in 1952. When I was 6 years old, he ruptured a disk in his lower back loading the trucks where he worked. He could no longer work but he got a $3000 settlement from the company. He took this small amount of money and built a small garage in a tiny cornfield his mother owned.  He taught himself to fix any kind of automobile and began a used car business with the $600 he had left from the settlement. 

I saw him work 12-18 hour days for many years to develop his business, build a four-room house for my mother, me, and my siblings ...and put food on the table.  ...He had grown up knowing the feeling of true hunger and going to bed many nights afraid for his safety, but I never went to bed hungry or scared of intruders because of him.  ...He once said to me, "You will never be hungry or need a safe place to sleep as long as I am alive." ...And I never did.  He was the "work ethic" of western civilization personified. 
Rest in Peace, Dad. Heart


Why do I want to win a WinRAR license? 
WinRAR software is a time proven and top-rated compression software by computer users across the world. One only has to google its name to discover this. ...WinRAR is the most popular archiver software. It has many features and tools that can create compressed files in both RAR and ZIP formats. It can unpack most known file formats such as RAR, ZIP, ISO, CAB, 7ZIP and many more.

*I followed WinRAR on their Twitter page ([Only registered and activated users can see links Click here to register]) as "Elijah Gale."

"Share a fond memory of your Dad/Father (that you’ll never forget) and WHY do you want to win a WinRAR lifetime license?"


My father and I used to travel a lot when we were kids, but when I grew up, we couldn't make these trips anymore because of both my work and his works.
It would be nice to ride the motor into the sunset. Like we did before.
Father love is immortal love that will last forever
Love your father, your mother, your family.
They won't be one day.

Why do I want to win a WinRAR license? 

It would be nice to win a winrar license that will last forever like father's love
Smile

The best compression program.
Good level compression and high security encryption.
I am using an older version and I hope I have a chance to win a new version license.

Thanks a lot for this rare exclusive giveaway

"Share a fond memory of your Dad/Father (that you’ll never forget)

My father and I are very close. I look back in memories of my life and I couldn’t find any moment my father wasn’t there. I have many fond memories of traveling with my DAD in the summer season, swimming in pools, running, playing, sitting on the beach. He was preparing dinner fo me while watching TV at the weekend. On my graduation day, he was very happy and gave me a very nice smartphone. I have many difficult times in my life, he is always present, helping and advising

WHY do you want to win a WinRAR lifetime license?"

WinRAR is one of my favorite software i am using many years ago. It is the first app to be installed on my system after crash. It is the best archiving software with many features and tools, light weight, friendly skinny interface, continuous development and easy to use. The program options are easily accessible using right context menu. Having lifetime license with free upgrades is a dream

When i was small, my father once bought sofa covers and i was so happy that I massaged his head for about 1.5 hours. Till this day, he teases me when i will become so excited again to which i say that i was small back then. Note- My father likes when i massage his head. This made me realize that the most precious/memorable time with my father was when i was small and innocent and I used to get excited even by small things.
I want to win winrar license as it is one of the most lightweight archiving utilities with all the features one needs like support for widest range of formats, repair feature, VirusScan , easy to use and rwad interface.
Thanks!!
