RAR Archive Format RAR Converter
RAR is a format for archive files, which can be used as an alternative to ZIP folders. The full name of the format is WinRAR Compressed Archive. It was created by Eugene Roshal in the mid-1990s as a method for simultaneously archiving and encrypting files.
RAR files offer greater security, and typically take up less file space than ZIP folders because of a higher compression ratio. Because of these features, RAR has been used in the past for creators to store and share raw photo or video files, although many photographers and videographers now use cloud-based galleries or file-sharing tools. Not very many programs can open RAR files, but they can be opened with WinRAR and Corel WinZip. You can create RAR archive files with the paid WinRAR program, as well as using online tools like Zamzar.
TAR Archive Format TAR Converter
A TAR file is also known as a Consolidated Unix File Archive and was developed by Jean-loup Gailly. TAR files are different to many other archive files in that they store files in an uncompressed format before the archive is then compressed using compression technology such as GNU Zip compression. TAR files are often found on Unix devices and they’re designed to group files together for easier distribution. TAR files consist of a file header and file data and were originally developed to support tape backups before being used for other purposes. To open a TAR file users can use File Viewer Plus, WinZip and WinRar.
