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 selfextracting and multivolume archives. With recovery record and recovery volumes, you can reconstruct even physically damaged archives.
# Bugs fixed:
* when processing a command like: WinRAR.exe a -sfxmymodule.sfx arcname.exe WinRAR ignored the optional parameter of -sfx switch and used default.sfx module. Console RAR.exe did not have this bug
* WinRAR did not create the folder structure necessary to store unpacked hard links. So if folder containing a hard link did not exist yet, hard link extraction failed
* "rn" command displayed wrong file names for processed files. Files were renamed properly, only the screen output was incorrect
* when extracting ACE archive, WinRAR could create empty folders contained in such archive in a wrong destination folder.
