WinRAR 3.70 Beta 6

WinRAR is an archive manager with support for packing RAR and ZIP archives and unpacking RAR, ZIP, ZIP64, 7Z (7-Zip), CAB, ARJ, LZH (Lempel-Ziv-Huffman), TAR, GZ, ACE, UUE, BZ2, JAR (Java Archive developed by Sun Microsystems) and ISO (ISO9660) archives. You may use it to backup your data, reduce the size of email attachments, decompress files downloaded from the Internet and create your own file archives.

What's new in Version 3.70 beta 6:

* Bugs corrected:

a) WinRAR shell did not allow to create recovery volumes for locked RAR volumes. Now the recovery volumes option is accessible for both locked and not locked RAR volumes;
b) WinRAR displayed incorrect sizes for files inside of UDF ISO archives if file size exceeded 4 GB. Such files were unpacked correctly, but their sizes in file list window were displayed wrong.

Of course there are free alternatives, and you're welcome to use them - but keep in mind there are -no- free alternatives that create RAR files, nor are all the free alternatives completely compatible with unpacking RAR files (for example, as noted above with large files). Recommending free software to replace paid software only makes sense when the free software covers at least the basic functionality of the paid software. If you can't get the same benefit with free software, whether or not it exists as an alternative is moot.

By the way, WinRAR can unpack the 7z format, even though it currently doesn't pack files in that format.

Vettetech why does this have to become a flame war?

Neowin posts information about a software release. Why did you have to respond with an alternative? If you don't have anything actually constructive to say about it why did you have to post?

This beta runs very well on vista/xp and file sizes have shrunk by a small fraction.

You people are amazing.Like I said I dont pay for any software. I use AVG Free,Comodo Firewall,AVG Anitvirus, and Spyware Blaster. ALL FREE. I also use 7 zip which is free. And no hapbt I will not be buying WinRAR.

is there anything else out there that repacks .rar files into a whole file? I haven't seen anything that can put pieces of a larger file together.

winrar has always delivered...this beta release is no exception.....but if u feel that winrar is not for u.....then use zip genuis...it had similar features..and different ones to winrar...i used it before...

So you would rather pay? Are you crazy. I dont pay fpr any software anymore except my games.

Nice to see you are stickin it to the software industry and all the developers out there that need money to live

Ugh. I am so sick and tired of seeing this particular comment in reference to 7-Zip. 7-Zip DOES NOT CREATE RAR FILES. Yes, it can unpack them, as can most free archivers, but it CANNOT CREATE them. As excellent of a compression format as 7z is, RAR is very widely used, and not being able to create it is a big minus. Food for thought.
