I suppose I should firstly clear up that I'm not reviewing a really bad cover of Lady Gaga's 'Bad Romance'. No, no, why would I do that? Instead, I'm looking at something that we have more issues with in life than one may first think, both in the 'real world' and online. For as quality gets greater, as do the file sizes, unfortunately. This can make accessibility an issue, as well as making online sharing nearing impossible. As Adidas once boldly said however, 'Impossible Is Nothing'. We all know that's a load of rhubarb, but as I said, this is addressing the nearly impossible, so on with the review! WinRar is a piece of file compression software for Windows ... Read the complete review

WinRar is such a part of my everyday computing life that it seems almost absurd to have to review it; it's like reviewing 'breathing'. Why is it so necessary and what exactly does Winrar do? Winrar is a fantastic bit of archiving software. What this does is it basically wraps whatever files you want up into a pressie 1/2 of the size and lets you transfer or store that one file instead of a whole host of others. When you download things from the internet then chances are it'll be stored in an archive, which isn't of much use to you unless you can 'unwrap' it. There are a whole host of programs reading to decompress your file, some more famous than winrar ... Read the complete review

WinRar really is a fabulous little piece of software that is a must have for any frequent downloader. WinRar is a powerful archiver manager and it allows you to save and compress files into much smaller file sizes. The software also allows you to extract Winzip files amongst many other files types. The main benefits of this software is that files can be compressed and then stored so that they take up less space than they would otherwise. It also means that if you were to send a compressed file by WinRar file as an email it would take less time to download because it is a smaller file size, making it one useful piece of kit! The main file types it supports are ... Read the complete review

WinRar for the computer illiterate. It has taken me years to learn things about programs that help my computer experience, and the learning process is a hard one simply because people don't give information in easy terms. Take this program for instance. There are many places on the net that describe its processes and what benefit they are to the user, although none that I have found that can help those people that know very little about technology. I started using WinRar when I noticed that many files I need to send by email need to be made smaller. If you imagine compression in terms of neatness, then you wouldn't be far wrong imagining you want to ... Read the complete review

As those who know me know, I'm fond of downloading large files from the internet. Unfortunately, my own computer isn't online, due to problems with my university's phone network (it's not a BT line so the unlimited time packages aren't available). This naturally leads to problems. Fortunately the university computers have blisteringly fast download rates, so I can download files on these computers and transfer them over to my home machine. For this, I have to use the humble floppy disk - which has a capacity far less than many of the files I download. As such, I need a program capable of splitting a file over a number of disks. My ...
