WinRAR 4.20

WinRAR is an archiving utility that completely supports RAR and ZIP archives and is able to unpack CAB, ARJ, LZH, TAR, GZ, ACE, UUE, BZ2, JAR, ISO, 7Z, Z archives. It consistently makes smaller archives than the competition, saving disk space and transmission costs.

WinRAR offers a graphic interactive interface utilizing mouse and menus as well as the command line interface. WinRAR is easier to use than many other archivers with the inclusion of a special "Wizard" mode which allows instant access to the basic archiving functions through a simple question and answer procedure.

WinRAR offers you the benefit of industry strength archive encryption using AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) with a key of 128 bits. It supports files and archives up to 8,589 billion gigabytes in size. It also offers the ability to create self extracting and multi volume archives. With recovery record and recovery volumes, you can reconstruct even physically damaged archives.

Bought a license years ago, it's a tool most here will use almost daily.

IMO a thief is a thief no matter how easy it is to steal.

$30? No thanks. I'd rather buy three pizzas and eat one and nibble on the second.

Or just don't pay like everybody else The 'trial' doesn't expire.

Rather pay nothing and not have a nag screen. Plenty of other choices.

True, but it's a lifetime license unlike other devs (last I checked) so not exactly a cashflow breaker.

Did they finally update the icons or no?

Making the UI modern should be the next priority for the WinRAR team.

Yes, because I totally want the icons to be updated while i'm extracting files...

Why, I actually open WinRR once in a blue moon, 99.9% of the time I just use the context menu.

Yes, the icons on the screenshot above are the default icons now.

No, the icons are still quite old.

It does have new icons, it's been updated for quite some time now, Few builds before this one.

I'd prefer to call them updated. They still fit in with Windows 98.
