RAR files are commonly used on Usenet to compress large video files or large collections of smaller video or jpg files. The best binary file Usenet readers support extracting RAR files, at least to a point. NewsRover would not extract this one 1.5GB RAR files (combined split files). I needed to get WinRAR, from the inventor of the format. I had not realized that an individual has the right, under the license, to install WinRAR on all the computers that they own. A business needs a license for each computer, but there are volume discounts to ease the burden. I certainly am going to take advantage of the license and install WinRAR on my second desktop computer.
