WinRAR 5 released

WinRAR 5 is here and ready to download!

The latest WinRAR release features a new and advanced archive format which makes archiving more secure, more efficient and faster than ever before.

Berlin, 03.09.2013 – win.rar GmbH and RARLAB are pleased to announce the long-awaited final release of WinRAR 5. The world’s leading compression software is now even more advanced and has implemented a variety of innovations further boosting the performance of WinRAR. The new RAR5 archive format includes many improvements of existing features of WinRAR and creates RAR5 files with a higher compression ratio and significant speed gain relative to the competition.


There is new archive format. When using WinRAR 5, you'll not only have the existing RAR and ZIP compression options but also the new RAR5 archive format. An assortment of advanced algorithms has been implemented in addition to further optimization for use with modern software and hardware configurations. In summary, there is no better option for file compression than RAR5.


“It's never been more important to feel confident your sensitive data is safe from unwanted access and tampering,” says Öncül Kaya, managing director of win.rar GmbH. WinRAR has always set the standard for quick and easy encryption and that's not going to seize anytime soon. With WinRAR 5, the RAR algorithm has been upgraded to include 256-bit AES encryption - further ensuring that the user's data is fully protected. With RAR encryption, data is safe and sound.


RAR archives have always provided a higher compression ratio than the competition. WinRAR 5 can now create larger dictionaries of up to 1 GB in the 64-bit version of WinRAR which leads to an even higher compression ratio than in previous versions.


Decompression speed has also been increased due to the introduction of a number of advanced algorithms optimizing the process. The increased of speed derives primarily from the use of multithreaded decompression on multi-core systems.

Further Additions to WinRAR 5

Based on the demand of many users the limitation of maximum archived file path length in RAR archive is changed from 260 to 2048 characters.

Another major improvement is the new recovery record function which is based upon the Reed-Solomon error correction codes making archive recovery stronger and more efficient. In test scenarios with a 1 GB archive, WinRAR was able to fix 9 times more damages relative to the previous version.

The file identification within RAR archives has been additionally enhanced by using BLAKE2sp hash as a file checksum. With BLAKE2 inclusion, one may definitively detect whether files are different or the same. While using CRC32, two different files may share the same value. This is not the case with BLAKE2.

Another tip: for all Windows-64-bit users, it is highly recommended to install the WinRAR 64-bit version. It is faster and offers the best available integration. WinRAR’s compression speed in Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 and on any multi-core-system has been increased considerably.

WinRAR Annual Maintenance Package (WAMP)

We would like to inform you that we have now implemented the WinRAR Annual Maintenance Package (WAMP). We have tested this additional service and got very positive results. More and more customers are asking for a maintenance product. Therefore, we have decided to add it for you.

It is important to note that the WinRAR maintenance package is an optional service and customers will have the choice to include it or not in their purchase. This is what the package contains:

  • upgrade assurance for future WinRAR versions

  • priority e-mail support and lost key support.

Pls note, it has been our policy to offer future upgrades and updates for free to our users. Although we do not intend to change that in the near future, there are no guarantees or real assurance for how long the current policy will continue. The first item in the maintenance package takes care of this uncertainty and guarantees customers all new RAR versions, released during the period covered by the subscription.

The second point, priority e-mail support, simply guarantees that any request coming from a customer, who has purchased WAMP, receives a priority treatment. When the support is handled by us (as is in orders handled directly by win.rar GmbH), we have a dedicated e-mail for that: In case, the customers have lost their keys. With the WAMP, we can resend the key to them without any extra charge.

Q 1: What is the WinRAR Annual Maintenance Package and what does it include?

Answer: The WAMP is an optional service and customers will have the choice whether or not to include it in their purchase. The package contains the following:

Q 2: Do WinRAR registered customers have to pay for upgrades if they do not purchase the WAMP?

Answer: For the time being, we offer our regular registered users free upgrades and updates.

Q 3: If you still offer free upgrades, why should customers purchase WAMP?

Answer: Although we still offer free upgrades, there is no guarantee as to how long the current policy will continue. The first item in the maintenance package eliminates this uncertainty and guarantees customers all new RAR versions released during the period covered by the subscription.

Q 4: How the customers have support when purchased WAMP within 48 hours?

Answer: For customers who have purchased the WAMP, they can contact directly and their requests will be handled within 48 hours.

Tech Tip: Do you know about WinRAR Backup Function??

What is a backup?

In information technology, backup refers to making copies of data so that these additional copies may be used to restore the original after a data loss event. These additional copies are typically called "backups."

Backups are useful primarily for two purposes. The first is to restore a state following a disaster (called disaster recovery). The second is to restore small numbers of files after they have been accidentally deleted or corrupted.

Backup with WinRAR

  • Select the files you want to backup and compress them into one archive.
  • Choose your settings and save them in a separate profile, which you can use multiple times. Here is one example. The settings don't have to be the same as in the example.

You can modify your profile the way you want it to be: set and combine rules how to backup your files.

  • Add only files older or newer then ("Time")
  • Add only files, which are modified after a special date ("Time")
  • Add only files which are larger than 100 MB (command line only)
  • Store already compressed files (ZIP, RAR, JPG, AVI.) ("Files")
  • Add only files with attribute "Archive" set ("Backup")
  • etc.
