UnRarX Editor's Review

UnRarX is a simple utility that allows you to unpack, or repair RAR archives.

Basically this application is just a frontend. It includes the binary versions of 'unrar' and 'par2'.

'unrar' is the official command line application which unpacks the RAR archives. It is provided by the developer of the RAR algorithm. UnRarX uses this executable code in order to provide you an easy way of extracting a RAR archive.

'par2' is a utility that uses parity files in order to assure that the archived data won't be damaged. If the original data gets corrupted or lost, then you can use the PAR files, if you have them, in order to recover the data.

The interface of the application allows you to test the archives, besides the extraction function. The interface also allows you to input a password which can be used in case the archive is encrypted. You would need to supply the password prior to the extraction.

UnRarX also allows you to easily set up a destination path. You can choose the source file directory, your Desktop, or a custom path. You would need to pick a path where your user has write access, or the extraction process fails.

Pluses: it has a good usability compared to the command line application that UnRarX have as backends, it features the required functionality in order to obtain a good result.

Drawbacks / flaws:

In conclusion: if you have trouble with a 3rd party RAR unarchiver, then this application is a huge helper as it uses the official 'unrar' binary. The support for PAR files makes it even better.

version reviewed: 2.2
