WinRAR is available for over a dozen operating systems, in both 32 and 64-bit versions. It costs and is distributed as trialware. Even after the trial is over, it is still quite usable, with just a bit of nagging.
WinRAR sometimes produces a string of component compressed files with extensions *.r01 *.r02 etc. when you compress a large file. To decompress, you just open the *.r01 archive and it automaticaly finds and processes the other pieces. This feature is useful for sending a very large file such as a DVD (Digital Video Disc) image to someone over the Internet. You can break it up into manageable pieces and reconstruct them. WinZip Courier limits you to 2 GB (and 100 MB free). WinRAR helps you get around those limits by smashing big files into compressed little ones.
