Disadvantages: Not a lot of help files.
I really don't know what I would to without this piece of software. It's a small sized download and can be bought or trial'd with dozens of different languages. WinRar, like WinZip let's you compress and unzip RAR and ZIP files to a specific folder of your choice. People who don't do a lot of downloading off the internet may not need this program but it's essential for those who have to download Zipped files onto their computer.
The ZIP file goes straight to WinRar where differnt things can be done to the file such as a Virus Scan which is handy. By using the virus scan, you can detect if there is a virus without even opening the contents within the file!
There is a repair option to repair broken or damaged files, doesn't always work but does most of the time. When your WinRar downloads page get's a bit crowded, there are tools that help you find what your looking for with a search option which is very handy. They are automatically arranged in alphabetical order but eventually, you may need to search for files. You can also group files together and add files to the archive to be compressed or uncompressed. With ZIP and RAR files getting more popular these days, you must get WinRar! Anyone can use it, it's interface is great.
There are lot's of tools and extracting contents out of files was never easier. A double click! However, if you want to assign a specific location of a file, use the "Extract to" option which simply open's up your computers directory and you can choose a file path where you want the files contents to save to. It's a great program and I really couldn't do without it.
Summary: An easy piece of software to use and so handy.
