Note when compressing and decompressing files with winrar

- Normally when uploading multiple files at the same time (such as the files of a music disc), we should compress all these files into a single compressed file and then upload this compressed file.

- WinRAR supports setting passwords while compressing files.If we use a password for the compressed file, we must provide the password to the downloader so that they can successfully extract the file

- WinRAR also supports both compressing and splitting files.If the uploader uses WinRAR to both compress and split the file, then the downloader needs to download all the parts and put them in the same directory.Then just extract the first part and WinRAR will automatically find the rest to join and extract.

- If using Windows XP, you can extract ZIP archives without WinRAR.How to do the following: double click on the zip file, copy the contents of the zip file, then paste it into an existing folder, Windows will automatically extract and put the results into this folder.
