Single reason why WinRAR is better than 7zip

is a recovery record.

Why would you want to add a recovery record? It protects your files in case the data gets corrupted (such as a bad flash drive or similar disasters).

Btw someone on the internet agrees with me.

Setup your WinRAR to always add recovery record

Create a new default profile for WinRAR to take advantage of the recovery record without having to add it manually every time.

1) Launch WinRAR.exe (C:\Program Files\WinRAR)

2) Choose Options – Settings, tab Compression

9) Click Ok

10) Close the WinRAR
