WinRAR is a very powerful file compressor, which allows you to compress and decompress files, either for the purpose of taking up less disk space, or to support multiple folders in a single file, or to reduce the size of attachments sent by mail, Or to split very heavy files, et cetera.
Winrar is able to decompress the vast majority of formats, for example: ZIP, RAR, GZ, TAR.GZ, BZ2, 7Z (7-Zip), and many more.
WinRAR is integrated into Windows Explorer, allowing you to right-click on a file to display options related to this program, to compress in case of being a file or directory, and to decompress in case of being a compressed file compatible.
Winrar allows you to protect RAR files with password, ideal option when you want to backup confidential documents, personal photos, or some other type of personal content.
It has a tool to recover RAR files that were badly compressed, and that because they are damaged they can not be opened with other programs of decompression of files.
Due to the ability to support several formats, it has had a greater acceptance on the part of many users with respect to its once great rival, WINZIP , although several good compression applications have appeared and free of charge as in the case of 7-zip or Of Hamster, among others.
In this new version 2016 has been removed the restriction of the maximum possible size, which was about 2 GB, with the possibility of working with heavier files. The decompression speed of the files has also been improved by almost 30% and support for multi-core processor systems is added, although these changes require a higher consumption of RAM (120 MB compared to the 40 MB required in the version Above to load the program).
Winrar 5.31 is the latest version of this software, released in December 2014. It is available for download in Spanish. It works for XP, Vista, 7, 8 and 10 (for both 32-bit and 64-bit systems).
