CategoryCompressed File
DescriptionNamed after its Russian creator, the RAR format, standing for Roshal Archive, is a compressed file type. The compression technique used to create RAR files is proprietary and has been licensed to other paid and freeware compression file applications. The RAR format also provides features such as repair, which will attempt to restore part or all of the file when physical damage has occurred. The RAR format established itself as a rival to the ZIP file format due to its superior compression ratios.

Technical DetailsThe RAR format allows for an extremely large potential file size, with 20 Exabyte's being the upper limit. The format permits spanning across multiple RAR files. This sometimes leads to the file extension being renamed from .RAR to .R01,.R02 etc. This is particularly useful when an archive needs to be transferred to removable media such as a memory card or CD/DVD. RAR, along with several other lossless file compression formats, is based on Huffman encoding.

File extension.cab
CategoryCompressed File
DescriptionThe CAB file extension is a compression format developed by Microsoft. Originally used to minimise the number of floppy disks required to hold installation data, the file format is now used to minimise the size of files downloaded from the web. The CAB format offers effective compression because it compresses across multiple files ignoring the boundaries between the files. CAB files are often linked with self extracting files due to the ease with which they can be recognised as CAB files.

Technical DetailsThe CAB file permits three types of compression: Quantum, LZX and DEFLATE. Microsoft provide the ability to apply a digital signature to a CAB file. This allows a user to verify the authenticity of the file. CAB files are not constrained by a maximum file size that some compression files face. It is possible to spread a CAB file over multiple CAB files. A limitation of a CAB file is that it needs to be recreated every time it is changed, whereas other compressed formats allow for a file to be updated based on additions, removals or edits.
