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.
Overall, WinRAR for Mac is a powerful archiver and archive manager. RAR files can usually compress content 8-30% better than ZIP files. WinRAR for Mac main features are strong compression, strong AES encryption, archive protection from damage, and self-extracting archives.
WinRAR for Mac only offers a command line interface.
RAR uses RAR 5.0 archive format by default. You can change it to RAR 4.x compatible format with -ma4 command line switch.
Added support for 1 nanosecond file time precision on Unix platform.
You can specify 'f' charset value in -sc switch to use UTF-8 encoding. For example: rar a -scfl arcname @filelist.txt to read contents of filelist.txt as UTF-8 text.
RAR "lt" and "vt" commands display file times with nanosecond precision. Such precision is used in RAR5 archives created by RAR/Unix 5.50. Archives created by Windows RAR version have 100ns file time precision.
Only '+', '-' and '1' precision modifiers are supported in -ts switch now. Use '+' to store the file time with maximum precision, '-' to omit the file time and '1' to store it with 1 second precision. Intermediate precision modes previously defined with '2' and '3' modifiers are not available in RAR 5.0 archive format and ignored by -ts switch.
If a wrong password is entered when unpacking an encrypted file in RAR5 archive, RAR proposes to enter a valid password for same file again instead of aborting extraction.
Fixed crashes and security vulnerability when unpacking corrupt RAR archives.
Directory owners were not set when extracting RAR5 archives created with -ow switch.
If only creation or only last access file time was stored in RAR5 archive with 1 second precision, such as with -ma5 -tsm- -tsa1 switches, this stored time was ignored when extracting.
