Single reason why WinRAR is better than 7zip

Recovery record.

Someone agrees with me. Do not forget to use RAR5 option.


Create new default profile for WinRAR to take advantage of RAR5+recovery without having to choose if manually every time.

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

2) Choose Options – Settings, tab Compression

winrar compression settings

3) Click on Create default…

4) Select RAR5 and check Add recovery record

winrar default

5) Click OK

6) back in Compression tab – Click on Organize

7) Select Default profile and click on Edit button

winrar organize profiles

8) Here Set profile as default, Add to context menu, optionally check Immediate execution (archive will be created immediately without setting Archive name and parameters)

9) Click Ok

10) Close the WinRAR

11) Right click on what you want to compress and choose Default profile
