WinRAR 3.51

RARLab (Shareware)

WinRAR 3.51 is an application that enables users to create archives of their files as well as unpack archives. It supports a number of archive formats, including ZIP, RAR, ISO, TAR, and CAB files. Archiving is a process that compresses multiple files and stores them in a single folder, making file transmission faster and saving space on a disk. It is a lightweight program that does not take up a lot of system resources and does not interfere with open applications and it also does not slow down the general system performance.

This application makes use of AES, or Advanced Encryption Standard, to provide users with high-quality archives. It has both a graphical user interface and a command line interface so users can select which mode to utilize in their archiving tasks. Beginners may also access the application’s Wizard mode, which provides instant and easy access to the program’s basic functions. The Wizard mode determines what the user would like to do by asking a series of questions.

WinRAR 3.51 has the ability to create large archives; the application’s maximum byte capacity is 8589 billion gigabytes. Users can also create multivolume and self-extracting archives for easier unpacking of files. Another feature of this application is its ability to recover and reconstruct archives that have been corrupted or damaged.
