A brief overview of a RAR file

RAR stands for Roshal Archive which is a high-efficiency compression file format. Such a file was developed by a talented man named Eugene Roshal. In 1993, there existed two versions of RAR that were released, one in March and one in September. Nevertheless, only the one in September was released to the public officially.

After that, RAR was improved by the releases of many versions. They introduced lots of advanced features such as multi-volume archives, multithreaded compression, multithreaded decompression, and password-protected archives.
