    WinRAR Christmas 2017 Giveaway.


    WinRAR is the world's most popular compression software! This compression software offers a full list of quality ZIP features and supports a host of extraction formats. You can compress files into RAR 5, RAR 4, and ZIP archive formats and can extract a number of different archives. This ZIP software supports the extraction of 14 archive formats. In addition to RAR and ZIP, these include RAR, ZIP, 7Z, ACE, ARJ, BZ2, CAB, GZ, ISO, JAR, LZ, LZH, TAR, UUE, XZ, Z, ZIPX and 001.

    In this new version 5.50 RARLabs has added extraction support for .LZ archives created by Lzip compressor, inclusion of LZ and ZIPX are added to list of associations in Settings/Integration dialog and LZ and ZIPX extensions are added to default list of formats for -ms switch ("Specify file types to store") invoked without parameters. WinRAR scores high in our extraction format category.

    The first WinRAR version, with the proprietary RAR format, was released in 1993. The format is a chief rival of the ever-present ZIP format. Though you can only compress files into the two formats, this ZIP software lets you unzip 14 different formats. WinRAR includes the ability to create self-extracting files, split archives into multiple volumes and repair damaged files. WinRAR also can scan your archives for viruses before you extract the files.

    This application'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.

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

    There are two versions of RAR for Windows:

    (1) Version with graphical user interface - WinRAR.exe;
    (2) Command line console (text mode) version - Rar.exe.

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

    This is an awesome giveaway except I went to go into tweakbytes forum to join the giveaway & says I’m banned for spamming? Says if this is a mistake contact the admin! Tried but I get a pop up stating the same when in fact I’ve never spammed & have been a member on here for quite a long time as I did try to contact them through face book! I also can’t seem to find a way to contact them via email either? If anyone is on their site can you please ask them how one reports the error? Thank you
