   RAR and ZIP are universally used archive types that have been competing for years. The key benefit of the RAR format is significantly better compression of many file types, while ZIP offers better compatibility and tighter integration with different operating systems. On the whole, ZIP is more popular on the web, although RAR is also widely used, especially for certain data types and in certain situations. For instance, if you need to compress a folder that mostly contains relatively small files of the same format, you can select the «solid archive» compression option available in RAR only. This will instruct the archiver to handle all these files as a single data stream and product a much more compact output file. This feature is especially convenient for users working with a large number of files with considerable intra-file redundancy — for instance, text files, uncompiled code files and the like. ZIP doesn’t have this option, though, but is natively supported by the majority of modern operating systems.

   If you have a RAR file that you want to turn into a ZIP archive, it just couldn’t be easier. The easiest way to do it is to zip a *.rar archive. However, it’s not a good idea, since the person you will send the file to may not be able to open the underlying RAR archive. It’s also fairly useless in terms of the resulting compression ratio, since ZIP itself may be more efficient compressing certain file types. Therefore, if you want to convert RAR file to ZIP file, the best option for you is to unrar the source file to your hard drive using any free tool — for instance, Xtractor Plus 3.6 — and then compress it again with ZIP (using the standard OS tools or freeware like ZipWrangler 1.20). It’s quite possible that the new archive will be smaller than the source one, depending on the type of data it is comprised of and the ability of the ZIP format to handle it.

   As you see, converting one type of archive to another is quite easy and may well save you additional disk space.
