Free RAR software: extract, open RAR files



rar files


How to open and extract RAR files (unrar)


RAR format (Roshal archive, from the name of the author) is a popular archive type introduced by WinRARfree rar extractor for Windows platform. Rar management routines were ported to Linux only for extraction (unrar) by the same Author of WinRAR Eugene Roshal. Due the huge popularity of the format many free alternatives to WinRar were made available to work with rar files for decompression, while writing function for compression to RAR format is not allowed to third party applications by the original license of the file format.

rar files opener


Both legacy .rar files (up to RARv2.9 / RAR4 format standards) and new RAR5 files are fully supported for extraction (unrar) by PeaZip free archiver, effectively working with all standard rar files specifications.

free rar opener

RAR format is well known for the high compression ratio of archives, strong encryption and advanced data recovery capabilities (recovery records).
PeaZip, freeware and open source utility, can open rar files and supports by default RAR format browsing, testing and extraction (decompress) on Linux and Windows, through the open source unrar implementation rewritten as Free Software by Igor Pavlov in 7-Zip.r01 files and ported to Linux by p7zip project.

Open RAR files

PeaZip free rar software allows to open rar files free of charge, and to browse and search content inside the archive. To view the rar file's content:
  • open rar file from system's explorer double clicking the rar archive, if file extension is associated with PeaZip as opener (default)
  • if rar file extension is not associated with PeaZip as default opener, right-click on the archive and use system context menu "Open as archive" entry, that will attempt to read any user provided file type regardless file associations

Extract RAR files

To extract RAR files (one or more) through PeaZip free rar extractor you can:
  • Use context menu entry "Extract here" or "Extract here (to new folder)" to extract rar file to current location
  • Use context menu entry "Extract..." to be asked for output path to extract the rar file to, and other extraction options
  • Open rar archive in PeaZip and use "Extract" button (you can chose output path, enter password and other options before confirming with "Ok") to extract selected object, or Ctrl+E for quick extraction simply specifying output path.
  • Open the rar archive in PeaZip and drag desired objects from the application to the system (the opposite can be used to add objects to the archive)
  • Open the rar the archive in PeaZip and doubleclick on an archived file to preview it
To enter password in PeaZip free rar software utility, to decrypt encrypted rar files, click in the locker icon in the status bar (in the file/archive browser) or the locker icon below output address field in extraction or archiving interfaces, or click Tools > Enter password / keyfile in main menu, or press F9.

rar files extraction

On password prompt for rar files, "Keyfile" field (which is always optional) should be left blank, WinRar encryption does not support PeaZip's two factor authentication - which increases security requiring the recipient of the encrypted file to have access to the key file othar than knowing the password for the archive.

Convert RAR files, i.e. rar to zip...

Convert files function extracts and then re-pack input archive files into any write-supported format (7z, arc, pea, tar, zip...). This tool can i.e. convert rar to zip or 7z, but not the inverse i.e. convert zip to rar; 7z, tar, zip archives cannot be converted to rar format which is read-only supported rar format, being PeaZip limited to rar opener (reader, viewer) and extractor operations.

free rar files extractor


Split (spanned) RAR files, archives splitted in multiple volumes, are usually named with extension .R00, .R01, .R02... or .001, or .001.RAR. It is usually needed to save all the files of the set in the same folder, and to double click on the first volume (the one with the lowest number in the suffix), in order to open or extract the entire archive - the procedute will take care of merging data spanned in different volumes when needed.
