Eugene, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/02/2014 -- SDR launches their own RAR file opener to the public effective this week. The company aims to challenge industry leaders that often always present problems whenever any file extraction is done. “This file opener is an easy to use tool that can compete with today's most rar opening and zip creating platforms and one of the only difference is price, ours is pro-bono,” stays Steven Coluido, president of Software Development Resource
Unique RAR Files
RAR is a type of proprietary archival data format [in contrast with container types which houses a lot of different file types], these types of files are often just compressed files.
Most users consider this format as an easy way to share large files across the internet or networks. Most email providers often have limited attachment file capacity and when this happens, decompression can solve the problem.
There are also files that sometimes people come across with online that needs to be decompressed in order for it to be seen or used. Not everyone can be acquainted with this format though.
RAR files are somewhat different from zip files as well but not that much. Zip files is the predecessor of RAR and is still more popularly in use today. But unlike the more potent RAR, Zip lacks recovery records, strong encryption, and Unicode names. In common parlance, those who use RAR file openers can open zipped folders easily and for many Windows users, the mere act of compressing files after right clicking can already do the trick for zipping folders into smaller versions of its size for easy file sharing. Zip has then become synonymous to lessening file size because of Windows' ubiquity.
RAR was developed by Russian software engineer Eugene Roshal in the early 90's. The abbreviation also comes from his namesake which spells Roshal Archive. SDR's own free RAR file opener does all these tricks easily, especially if there are problems in OS [since Mac users apparently don't have the same capability as Windows' default Zip feature].
