Rar and Zip are compression algorithms to compress your data files so that their size decrease.

Programs to zip and unzip files are freely available or otherwise come with your operating system. Winrar is the program to rar and unrar files which is a paid software.

RAR compression operations are typically slower than compressing the same data with early compression algorithms like ZIP and gzip, but with a moderately better rate of compression.
