WinRAR is a powerful archive manager. It can backup your data and reduce the size of email attachments, decompress RAR, ZIP and other files downloaded from Internet and create new archives in RAR and ZIP file format.
What's new in the latest Version 4.01:

1. Added support for file sizes stored in binary format in TAR archives.
Some TAR archives use the binary size format instead of octal
for files larger than 8 GB.

2. Bugs fixed:

a) "Repair" command failed to properly reconstruct structure
of RAR archives, which contained at least one file with packed
size exceeding 4 GB.

This bug did not affect the recovery record based repair.
It happened only if recovery record was not found and WinRAR
performed reconstruction of archive structure;

b) even if "Do not extract paths" option in "Advanced" part of
extraction dialog was set as the default, WinRAR still unpacked
file paths if called from Explorer context menu;

c) after entering a wrong password for encrypted ZIP archive,
sometimes WinRAR ignored subsequent attempts to enter a valid
password;

d) "Wizard" command did not allow to create self-extracting
and multivolume archives, when compressing a single folder
or a file without extension;

e) "Import settings from file" command did not restore multiline
comments in WinRAR compression profiles;

f) when converting RAR volumes having name1.name2.part#.rar name format,
"Convert archives" command erroneously removed ".name2" name part.
So resulting archive had name1.rar file name instead of expected
name1.name2.rar;

g) RAR could crash when creating a new archive with -agNNN switch
if archive number in generated name was 110 or larger;

h) WinRAR failed to display non-English file names in 7-Zip archives
properly if they used a non-default code page. It was the display
only problem, such names were unpacked correctly.
