Deal with a lot of compressed files? Want to save space fast? Zip to Rar is the answer
Master the archive
The Free ZIP to RAR converter from MediaFreeware is a simple, single-purpose tool. But why would you want to change a file from one kind of archive to the other?
Well, ZIP files are common these days for distributing data, images and other documents, while trying to save space. Several Web services convert multiple files into ZIPs when downloading—this lets you download them as a single file, and support for opening a ZIP is now built into Windows.
But RARs take up less space; the converter lets you store the files without using as much space, and lets you choose between three levels of compression to apply.
You can do all this using WinRAR or any other full RAR software, but the converter is free, fast and easier to use.
