I have tried to extract several different RAR archives with ZipItFree, and so far it has failed to extract more than one of them. In fairness, I did not build the RAR archives myself, so I don't have any other way to confirm with 100% certainty that they are in fact RAR format, and not something else (somebody may have change the file name extension, for example). ZipItFree does make it very easy to add files to your own compressed archive, and that can be very useful. I intend to keep this application on my PC, and try it on different file types as I encounter them. I am looking for a different extractor for RAR archives in the meantime.

Pros
  • Easy to install (you have the option of having it start up automatically when you boot up, or not), easy to create compressed files and archives, designed to handle multiple compression formats; and you can't beat the price
Cons
  • does not extract RAR archives reliably
