7-zip or cracked Winrar my dude

How do you crack a free program?

Winrar isn't free my dude !

What feature costs money then? For a consumer.

Oh true I never realised that
I guess it just cost time to click everytime on the Buy Later button

Just use 7zip... It's free and better anyways....

Honestly 7zip has mad compression with .7z and has been fully open source and free since release, no reason to not use it over something like Winrar.

I seriously don't know why any computer literate person would still use WinRAR, 7zip is just better.

Will never use 7z again because there is no need and I highly prefer the gui, context menu options, its ability to handle multiparts.

Then there is the fact that 99% of everything compressed from private trackers are still in rar and not 7z. Not that it matters since every program can handle everything. But still.

7zip can handle rar files just fine.

Thanks for repeating what he just said.

Sometimes winrar can depack files that seem corrupted to 7zip so it's got that going for it. But that's pretty much it

Why is it better? Never used it!

Paid software comes with support?

But honestly, especially at work winrar is useful to have. I tend to primary 7zip but you run into random archives or documents that 7zip can't uncompress, or uncompresses corrupt, or can't parse correctly for multi-part archives and winrar handles all that fine.

Nail on the head. Plus the whole not paying for winrar is part of their business model. They make their money off of company licenses. There's an interview online where the company talks about how it works.

Habit, mostly.

Yep. I've been using it since I was a kid. I tried 7zip but I just can't stand the UI.

But respect to 7zip anyway because when I'm seting up a new computer, I use it to unpack the .rar file of cracked WinRAR.

Sort of like using Microsoft Edge for 2 minutes to download another browser.

Who cares about the UI? You Just right click > Extract to.. or Extract here... and that's it.

Sometimes situation calls for such cases where first looking what's inside matters. That's why.

click to open, up arrow to back up. done.

I guess use what yah like, but functionality in 7zip is a thousand times better and has better delivery for the software.

Cutting off the nose to spite the face kind of deal here.

You're simply not patrician understand to understand the nuances in WinRAR's performance. He is brilliant, but a pleb like you wouldn't see that. You probably don't even have the IQ to appreciate Rick & Morty, let alone Death Grips or WinRAR. Please get thee hence.

Edge is my favorite browser for downloading firefox.

Really? Mine is Chrome.

(Still need Edge to download Chrome though)

So a new installation for you looks like this...?

Install the OS, Open Edge, Download Google Chrome, Close Edge, Open Chrome, Download Mozilla Firefox, Close Chrome, Open Mozilla Firefox, Browse the Internet?

I like downloading firefox from firefox to stick on a usb myself.

you are sticking a usb to yourself?

yes

Basically

maybe learn to use a command line?

7z x <file>

will take care of 99% of files

Why use a patched winrar when all you need is the rarreg.key file that been around for so many years? Install latest winrar from rarlab and drag the key into installation folder and done.

cigarettes are a healthier habit than winrar

You're not my real mum!

Probably the same group of people who still use Winamp.

Something something llamas ass

it really whips ...

Winamp is still the best.

VLC user here

Potplayer is better imo

But I love Winamp!

Winamp still works great and imo there isnt something any player much better in comparison like with 7z compression and winrar

Hey, Winamp is still great.

Winamp is still around in a new beta - https://getwacup.com/

One time I installed 7zip and it broke my computer. Had to revert to backup

Pure coincidence.

No.

I wouldn't use 7z if you paid me

Then you're a fucking idiot.

How? By not using the more popular program?

Because you're turning down free money. The obviousness of this and your ignorance to it confirms said idiocy wholly

No amount was mentioned, so you would swap for 1$? 1$ is also free money, I would never swap for a buck, maybe you would? But then I feel sorry for you because you must be very poor :D

If someone came up to me and said "want a dollar" I'd take it, yes. And not because I'm poor. A contradictory approach seems antithetical to being on a piracy discussion forum but do whatever you want dude

You're hating something because it's popular, not because of any of its defining features. You've skipped any sort of logical argument and instead just gone with the "you guys like it and that's not cool" argument.

Yes that's an additional idiotic aspect, but the more blatant part is about how he claims he wouldn't accept payment

I am a moron

Well okay then... thanks for sharing.

If 7zip had the same right click menu as winter I’d be all over it

It has

Do they use middle-out compression or something?

But but what abt those memes?????

no reason to not use it over something like Winrar.

Doesn't 7zip have some vulnerabilities that the dev has refused to patch on the grounds it would make 7zip slower?

No?

I remember reading a piece about the dev refusing some security changes but I can't seem to find it anywhere, maybe I'm misremembering

I tried it years ago, when trying to extract from an archive with multiple parts if you right clicked just one file and tried to extract it wouldn't work, you'd have to select all parts then extract. It was a small issue but it annoyed me to the point I switched back to winrar.

I don't know if it still works like that these days though... does it still behave like that?

you can simply drag and drop whatever parts of the archive you want.

No

I dont use it because compression does account for some data loss, and when I download music, I don't want data loss if I'm downloading Lossless (which is the only way I download)

That is not how it works lol

You've been misinformed.

Try doing a spectral analysis and compare the two after heavy compression.

Yeah, better not run any compressed executable files either. That's how programs get bugs.

millions of reasons to use winrar

why crack winrar, when there is a working keygen out there?

Why crack, or generate a key, when you can remove the the popup with resource hacker.

the key works everytime when i updated, without bothering to do anything.

can i get a key please?

i dont have the keygen anymore.

think team FFF or CORE did the keygen for winrar.

But then you are missing major feature. Becuae its only a NAG you are removing

Yeah, but edon't you crack it thanks to a file generated by a keygen ? :P

thats not cracking, cracking is changing the code, you keygened winrar in that case, left the binary untouched, its the best you can do.

rarreg.key

Funny thing about that, I had that for oh so many years, the same rarreg.key. And it works for every version ever released :D

They don't care about users pirating their software, they encourage it actually.

If many users have their software, then businesses will too, and a business can't have pirated shit

my name is fred and I'm an alco... ooops!!! wrong site!!! so, you mean like a marketing policy??? sorry but it doesnt make sense... a file rared with winrar in a given pc doesnt require winrar to unrar it in another pc. where am I??? how did I find myself here???

You can open rars with 7zip, write documents with libre office or edit photos with gimp. Still doesn't mean that a lot of people won't instead be used to other commercial products and won't ask those instead to their employers.

Why do you think Autodesk, Adobe, Microsoft etc give this licenses for free to students?

I had like an enlightenment when I learned this. I used to use patches which might contain viruses and crap.

Get 7z

I use both, but i prefer RAR for backups because it and store and selectively restore all 3 timestamps of a file, including creation time!

7z only supports this on cmdline...

I use Universal Extractor a ton, but 7z is good also.

This is why I use PeaZip. No nagware BS.

gEt 7Z sorry no, hate that interface

I think WinRAR is a lot better. I've never found the need to use any other extractor since Winzip, and I don't just deal with ZIP & RAR.

What's the enlightenment?

"I was an idiot all along."

I get that one alot

But I meant what relevance does rarreg.key have? What's the purpose?

He realised that a scene patch/crack for Winrar's executable wasn't necessary and that only a rarreg.key file was for every update. Correct me if I'm wrong here tho.

Ah. I thought it was some wide-reaching magic patch for all kinds of software. I was much too high when assuming that, obviously.

Epiphany is the word you seek.

7zip

Yes you are right, WinRAR can open/extract 7z files too.

Yes you are right. 7zip is open source, much faster and get's more updates

No need to use winrar
We have 7zip 😎

Can you extract rar files with 7zip?

Often not when the files are packed with the latest Winrar, 5.40 etc , you get weird errors. Latest real Winrar ia always the safest way to open pirate stuff :) Of course a pirated Winrar, haha.

Yes, even multipart ones.

Annoying part about that - if you right click > extract here on any multi-part rar file in winrar it starts at part 1 and goes to the end.

In 7zip, it starts from the file you right click so you have to find the first one 😜

They are numbered so how is that even an issue?

Doesn’t mean they’ll be listed alphabetically. Also, you can’t be lazy and click any. Click the wrong one and you get unreadable files.

Lastly, in lots of locations if the file names are long you can’t see the extension or part number and it becomes a mess.

Why would you want to extract from part 5 onwards and finish with half empty files?

I had exactly 1 case where winrar was useful like 10 years ago. Shitty internet connection, damaged archive but with recovery information. 7-zip failed, winrar had no issues.

Also 7zip routinely failed to open images by doubleclicking within an archive, not resolving the temporary path correctly or something. But currently I also use only 7zip.

WinRAR is so 2000

Install Windows 10 theme for it andyou travel to the future

Yeah it's not even worth pirating with 7zip out there. If you can get it from Ninite, get it from Ninite.

Pshh, I bet you use Windows 10 and like it.

am sure there's a hardcore pirate somewhere who would crack 7zip even if its free

You can also choose winrar so i check that box instead of 7z

From my experience, 7z is better than winrar

The one major benefit of WinRAR is that it will tell you what part of a multipart archive is broken. afaik, 7z doesn't do this. So I keep WinRAR around just in case.

Well, that's handy. TIL

Exactly .

Tough it's a bit weird, there is an free alternative 7zip and it's said to be as good. So why do people insist using rar ?

Pirating, you just drag the rarreg.key into the folder, hell would not even call it pirating anymore since the same rarreg.key worked forever. No installation, no patching, nothing :D

Also 7z, yuck. Cannot stand that garbage, also lacks certain things winrar have.

If I were to use another app than winrar I would use bandizip. But I won't, since winrar forever and ever <3

Still waiting to know how I can make a folder open after something's extracted to it in 7zip. Not a huge deal but it's enough to make me prefer winrar tbh

Please kill yourself.

ur mom gay

No u

We get downvoted because we are M E M E W O K E

Meh. Once you go 7zip you can’t go back.

Yes, yes you can.

I've used both and still prefer WinRar.

We can't save you then

Everytime I look up a tutorial on YouTube they always use winrar i need to enlighten these people about 7-zip

I'm the real dumbads by using both 7z and rarreg'd WinRAR

Is this a fetish or something?

Same..

Same here mate.

Why?

Because I have them installed...

Idek

Please stop implying that using WinRAR after the trial version without paying is piracy, it is not, they expect you to do this.

no u

I don't think that's what anyone is implying, is it? I thought it was because rar'ed files have been part of the piracy scene since forever.

They think it’s piracy if companies do it.

It's a very smart business practice. They don't enforce it on the average user in order to gain popularity, then when a company needs an archiving software what licence do they buy? WinRAR. Because everybody knows WinRAR.

Why is this on a piracy subreddit? WinRAR is trialware - the entire point is that you don't have to pay if you don't want to.

And not one mention at all that using rar is part of the scene rules

Because rar compression is a common element to the history of piracy? It's really not complex

So I can post any random meme about computers or the internet here because they are "common elements to the history of piracy"? Actually I think I might post a meme about hands, because pirates use their hands to do things!

You're one of those "only black or white, never gray" kinda guys, arent you?

You're right perfect comparison go do it lets see how well your extraordinary reasoning skills play out

7zip outperforms winrar.

It is faster, compresses better and open source.

Does it also decompress faster? That's all I would really care about.

RAR5 decompresses significantly quicker (for the same compressed filesize) in most cases.

Wait I read that 7zip decompresses faster

There aren't a lot of tests/comparisons that focus on decompression times or include RAR5. Here's one test I found. Don't completely agree with the conclusions he draws based on the data though.

My takeaway is that 7Z Normal is better for compressing fast to a good ratio. RAR5 Normal will take longer to compress to a similar ratio, however, will decompress much faster.

So why is everyone parroting 7zip?

Because it compresses faster (to the same filesize) in most cases and can compress a bit smaller at its highest setting compared to RAR5 at its highest setting. Most people don't seem to really care about decompression times, or just don't know.

Interesting. Cause I almost never compress. But I decompress basically everything I download.

Why would you pay when you don’t even need to open the goddam program to use it? πŸ˜‚

still using winrar when 7-zip exists

kill yourself my man

no u

Using wrong compression software. The sentence is death.

Behead all who criticize 7zip

r/gatekeeping but for compression softwares... Fuck me.

Use linux with tar my dude.

You realise they expect normal users not to pay. It's their business model: let normal people use it for free, this increases popularity generating more revenue from business licenses.

I've been using WinRAR for so long that I didn't even bother looking into other options. This is probably how Apple users feel about their products.

Yeah basically somethat that just works all the time is easy to use and works well

I wonder why they aren't looking for alternatives

Does not utilize multiple cores performing up to an order of magnitude slower, does not have a command line support, slower base algorithms, does not support advanced encryption, begs you for money, max compression level much lower.

still using the key generated by FFF keygen from 2011.

r/OfCourseThatsAThing

I bought winrar once. After going on a 10 year free trial across several systems.

Then I upgraded my system and am back on the trial.

I bought a physical copy of Winrar on CD. AMA

What?

I BOUGHT A PHYSICAL COPY OF WINRAR ON CD.

[deleted]

OP pls respond

I felt guilty :/

Why?

TIL those exist...

Yeah, I forgot optical media was a thing.

You are not on r/paidforwinrar though..

Gotta love reddit

Like 10 years ago at least ?

dnf install unrar

Boys use 7-Zip
Real men use WinRAR

dkaarvand paid for WinRAR. Reason: Wanted to impress a girl. She wasn't. Really dodged a bullet there - a girl unimpressed by WinRAR is a girl not worth your time.

what the hell is .rar file ??! why the fuck do i need that ssshiii..tt ??

7zip is even open source.

I would actually buy WinRAR to support the developer if it was cheaper.

i started using winrar when many if you weren't even born yet

Didn't know WinRAR was still around, or that people even used it

lol

xD

do they even sell anything / year? ... if they do, WOW. BIG WOW.

hahahah LUL

I remember one of my friends paid for winrar back when we were 10.

That's their business model, really. They know big companies will pay and if you don't that's fine whatever.

So true! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

When I was young I thought winrar was the only archiver lol

Is winrar archives still a thing on private BitTorrent sites? I'm on public ones and never encounter them.

Where my parallel bzip homies at?

As far as I know there's a sub for people who paid for WinRAR lol

7zip

People keep talking about 7zip. Is there a reason to make the switch aside from saving myself a click when I unzip something occasionally? I used to use winzip and switched to rar when I couldn't unzip something.

No

There's a whole lot of talk about 7zip being infinitely better but besides not supporting 7z and not being open source, WinRAR does everything 7zip doesn't. It's not that big of a deal but WinRAR has certain creature comforts that I can't live without in an archiver. 7z just seems to do the bare minimum.

What kind of "creature comforts"?

Better shell integration, better UI, better support for themes, everything just seems to be more organized.

How is the shell integration "better"? Honest question. I can right click and have any number of options win 7-Zip. Honestly, I disable most of them.

UI, themes? Seriously? How much time do you spend inside the app itself? What are you doing in there?

I'm sorry that I use my archiver different from you.

I was honestly curious, but a glib response is cool, too.

7Zip supports themes, it has completely same shell integration options, just go to settings, and the UI is almost same

Thank you. I can't stand 7 Zip's UI. I just wish they're write a decent UI to go along with the free software.

In all the years I've used 7-Zip, I think I've seen the UI for like... sixty seconds, total. What are you using the UI for?

Be thankful it has an UI. On linux it's just a command line.

Be thankful it doesn't force a GUI on you that you might not even need. But if you do need it you can choose to install it.

Btw a command line is a User Interface.

[deleted]

I remember pirating a paid version of winrar to see the difference. Ended up with a virus XD

Ever since 7zip tho, never looked back.

7ZIP > WinRar

is there a sub for internet history? i miss all this shit

Wirar is worth paying for.

7zip 4 lyfe my dude

I just use PeaZip instead.... :S

IZark anyone? I'm alone? :(

For a second, I thought I was on r/HaroldPorn

WinRAR only cares about companies tho

Can anyone tell me if the paid version or 7zip have faster decompression? Haven't ever used anything else lol

WinRAR? What is this, 1996?

Who the fuck uses WinRAR anymore?

They earn money from their corporate licensing

I fucking love this.

You know what, I'm gonna buy winrar. I have been using it for almost two decades with that message popping up. It's brought me lots of joy. I'm going to finally purchase it.

And 7zip lol.. good luck with extracting from split archives.

THANK YOU WINRAR

7 zip works with split archives

You just not have that much experience with 7 zip lol.

Try 12x password protected rar files and let me know how that worked out for you

I think you are the only person in the universe who uses password protected split archives. Both options are super rare nowadays, their combination is stupidly rare. Anyway, what is 7zip problem for those files

Like I said, you got a loooooot to learn my friend.

i paid. i figured after many years of use they deserved it.

winrar is so tinny it pains to pirate it.

call me crazy but after the millionth time they asked i paid and bought some extra stuff i didnt need.

btw, how do you guys not have a pirated one? i still use the same one i did like 5 years ago.

πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

What is this? The latest versions of WinRar can go from trial version to premium just by saying "no"? Or what?

I've used WinRAR for years (since Winzip, probz 10+ years back), always had to use a crack, or serial, or a pre-cracked installer.

Holy shit... this had no business making me laugh this hard.

man I can't stop laughing.. cracked it just to stop that goddamn popup

7zip masterrace

WinRAR does this on purpose. They don't care your trial is over. It's the free advertisement from people that think they found a glitch. "Guys, here's a paid extracter and the trial is broken so its free forever!". Sounds enticing, especially since paid software tends to be higher quality than open source programs such as 7zip

WinRAR is so 2000

Can you extract rar files with 7zip?

Sometimes situation calls for such cases where first looking what's inside matters. That's why.

I had exactly 1 case where winrar was useful like 10 years ago. Shitty internet connection, damaged archive but with recovery information. 7-zip failed, winrar had no issues.
