The Final Version of WinRAR 5.

80 is Ready to Download

The latest WinRAR release features enhancements of backup options, increased usability of the
command-line modus and improvements in compression of large files and in the handling of big

Berlin, Germany, December 13, 2019 --( win.rar GmbH and are pleased to
announce the final release of WinRAR 5.80. Since WinRAR has all the features that compression and
archiving management software needs, this update focused on particular enhancements for specific
use-cases and improved usability and speed, especially for users of the command line and users working
with huge amounts of files and archives.

In previous versions, more options for time settings and backup were added. Now, these have been
further developed and refined to enhance the variety of time settings available to the user. By adding the
“Preserve source files last access time” function, users who need to archive files for further analysis now
have the possibility to do so without altering any parts of the files, including the last access timestamp.
This feature can be important for backup reasons as well as for crime and forensic examiners, who need
to save files with maximum details, such as the full unicode path name, 3 timestamps, and NTFS alternate
streams - all while keeping the original file timestamps intact.

The archiving speed for large NTFS alternate data streams on multi-core CPUs has been increased. These
tasks are now completed faster to save time.

Additionally, the “Find” command has been further improved. Previously, a set password was required
each time when extracting encrypted files directly from the “Search results,” even if all files belonged to
the same archive. Now, the password is only requested once per archive and the user can also search
among UTF-8 files, which was not supported before. Also, the case-insensitive search is now performed
noticeably faster for big archived data.

Other improvements for the command-line mode have been made to increase usability and speed. For
example, when users are performing backups with the rar.exe tool, the combination of modifiers will be
more convenient and will save the user time. While carrying out backups and wanting to save the last
modified and created timestamp, users can now combine several modifiers into a single switch.

In summary, these continuous improvements have been made to enhance the usability of the software and
to provide a multifunctional, user-friendly program, with an intuitive interface featuring state-of-the-art
options for downsizing, extracting all common archive file types, securing, restoring, fixing, sharing, and
managing data.
