WinRAR Unplugged

WinRAR download and support. WinRAR is a powerful Windows tool to compress and decompress zip, rar and many other formats: Download Unplugged

Portable WinRAR! How very cool 🙂

The DataRecovery Application

This ultralight utility lets you recover files which have been unintentionally deleted. It works with all versions of Windows from 9x to Vista, and supports FAT and NTFS file systems.

The program makes no entries in the Windows registry, has no external data files, and doesn’t need an installer or setup. As a self contained program, DataRecovery itself virtually no footprint on your system. Just download it and double click on DataRecovery.exe. That’s very good because in a data recovery scenario you want to keep the lost file intact. Downloading a new program onto the computer and running its installer might cause the data you’re trying to recover to be over written.

I have used this program to successfully recover files on Windows 2000 and XP. The interface is ugly, but like all great utilities it is simple and functional. As with any data recovery scenario, there is no guarantee of success. Depending on how quickly you act, your file may not be recoverable.

Put DataRecovery.exe on your USB thumb drive, or your emergency utility CD. That way you have the best chance of recovering your files. I have added DataRecovery to my PortableApps menu by unzipping it to a subfolder of my PortableApps folder. Nobody is perfect, and even the pros experience data loss sometimes; only a real pro learns how to cope with it when it happens.

Best Archive Tool –

This page gives a good overview of the features one can expect in a modern archiving program. In evaluating the most popular archivers available to PC users they choose WinRAR as the best.

I’ve used most of the programs mentioned on that page. In my opinion, WinRAR is the best overall archiving program available to PC users. In terms of features, and ease of use, WinRAR trumps all. My only problem with WinRAR is the fact that it is a commercial program. I try to use Open Source software, free software, and freeware whenever I can. That is not just because I am very philosophical about computer programs, which I am, but also because I’m poor. WinRAR is definitely one of the few Windows programs worth paying for, certainly worth more than the measly $30.00 they’re asking for it.

I don’t want to take anything away from the excellence of this program by using it illegally. For that reason, I chose to investigate the free alternatives to WinRAR. I think the best alternative has got to be 7-Zip. 7-Zip can extract RARs, and sometimes 7-zip compresses better than WinRAR.

I think WinRAR has a much better GUI, because it elegantly exposes all of its powerful functions in a way that average Windows users can deal with. 7-Zip can’t match WinRAR’s ease of use, and the 7-Zip file manager is painful to use. The 7-Zip file manager fails to convey some critical features of the program, leaving it for command line gurus to master. The one feature I can think of WinRAR doesn’t have, 7-Zip does have a dual pane view.
