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 selfextracting and multivolume archives. With recovery record and recovery volumes, you can reconstruct even physically damaged archives.

1. "Find" command "Disks and folders" drop down list has been renamed
to "Search area". Additionally to already existing choices,
it includes a new "Selected items" option restricting search
to files and folders selected in WinRAR file list.
2. "Find" command displays the number of found items in status bar.
3. Switches -ta, -tb, -tn, -to now allow any number of modifiers
in the same switch to set the same date for all specified times.
For example, -tamc20190215 will process files modified and created
New 'o' modifier permits to switch from AND to OR logic,
so -tamco20190215 includes files modified or created after 2019-02-15.

with different dates in the same command line, like:
Switches -ta and -tn also include files matching the specified date
exactly. Switches -tb and -to exclude such files.

inside of archives leaving it blank;
b) WinRAR issued "The specified password is incorrect" message
infinitely when extracting an encrypted file from RAR archive
without name encryption if a wrong global password was set;
c) "File list/Files/Exact sizes" option in WinRAR settings
did not work inside of archives.
