WinRAR has a robust and general multimedia compression capability. Solid compression, archive protection from any damage, scanning archives for viruses, programmable self-extracting files, NTFS and Unicode support are some of the few features of WinRAR for PC Windows. This software as earlier mentioned puts a lot of effort in making sure that disk space is always available, as it creates small archives from compressed files that can easily be shared. There is a unique audio and graphics algorithm for individual archiving that does not sacrifice the quality of these files.
To compress large files, you can split the archives into small volumes that can be spread across multiple devices which will be easily transferable to other computers. The software is designed with security tools that password protect archives, as well as encrypt file names for an added layer of safety. You can as well make use of this software to verify the integrity of some archives, and repair damaged or corrupt files. To configure settings that concern the compression method you prefer, you will have to be an expert user of this type of software. If you are, you can also use it to configure dictionary size, file update mode, self-extracting archives, recovery records in the event of loss of data, NTFS symbolic and hard links, as well as many other aspects.
So you do not expose your computer to risks, you can back up the file before compiling them I to archives, while virus scans can be executed before you extract data from the archives. However, WinRAR uses a lot of your system's resources while running, especially when it is archiving huge file.
WinRAR is a great archive manager. It creates and decompresses RAR and ZIP files that you download from the internet. There are quite many additional functions to help you organize your data that have been compressed.
