There's a reason so many people not only rely on, but absolutely love WinRAR it works so well and exceeds their expectations, especially in direct comparison to zip apps. What zip can't do, RAR can. Where zip gets unstable and flaky, RAR stands steady. Where zip sets limits, RAR has none. Slightly different than zip apps to learn, but always easy. And best of all, I've never, ever had a RAR file fall corrupt or go bad on me in many years.
And for those of you complaining about the price being too steep, stop being so cheap! It's not that expensive when you consider the fact that you get a lifetime of upgrades for one charge. Not many commercial software vendors have the luxury of bundling their products with free lifetime upgrades and WinRAR is one of the few exceptions that offers an overgenerous upgrade policy which makes it a worthwhile investment. Also, free alternatives should not be classed in the same league as WinRAR or any other commercial alternatives. Free alternatives lack advance features found in WinRAR and its commercial counterparts such as the ability to put each file to separate archive (gimpguy previously mentioned that part), batch archive extraction, corruption repair, archive search, file list report, and anti-virus integration. As for espee29, why it should be made free? Do you work for free? I don't think so. Get over it and stop being a cheapskate. Not everything can be freeware. Money is what spurs innovation, not generosity.
