It is not a bad un-rar utility but it couldn't unpack one rar file I have.
unRARx had no problems with the same file.
It seems when a .rar is corrupted RAR Expander fails and unRARx does the job nice.

Back on Windows, I was a heavy user of Rar compression and a big fan of WinRar. This post shows how to use an Automator workflow with an applescript to tell the command line Rar executable above what to do: so you'll be able to simply right-click on any file or folder & create a RAR file. http://stuffforlife.blogspot.com/2009/03/data-compression-in-mac-os-x-how-to.html

Quick, efficient and fast. A great app. It does one thing but does that one thing well. Ignote stuffit, RAR instead!

I second the review. Stuffit failed on some files and this did the job. Goodbye Stuffit Expander and hello RAR Expander :)

Worked where Stuffit didn't. Simple as that.

What I want is an RAR expander that can tolerate a missing RAR file and STILL expand what is there, rather than quitting and just giving up. Sometimes I find a movie file or music file that's been RAR'ed but for some reason is missing 1 or more segments (newsgroups are infamous for this), and I'd like to see or hear whatever is available in the RARs.

Do it, and I'd pay for it.

If there were any par2 files with the rar you could rebuild the missing pieces (if there aren't too many).

Stuffit Expander IS *NOT* a reliable RAR expansion tool. It has failed decompress RAR files for me and my clients years.

Having dealt with the whole Stuffit line for a decade or so (yeah I'm a old Mac guy) I have found it can produce corrupt archives, leading to costly re-production of projects.

Instances of corrupted stuffit archives are common to the Mac community.

New Stuffit products often cannot open stuffit archives produced by older versions of Stuffit.

I maintain an old OS 7, OS 8 and OS 9 Macs (with comparable OLD versions of stuffit) for the purpose of opening old stuffit archives.

Surely a company that has proprietary ownership of the Stuffit format(s) could a least maintain a commercial product that that can can Open ALL the crazy formats they have produced over the years.

Finally a warning: ZIP, RAR, GZIP and the many other loss-less compression formats should never be run though stuffit ONLY perhaps if a tested uncorrupted backup exits, the likelihood of corruption of by stuffit, of these open compression formats is extremely high.

I look forward to any comments from the current and past developers of stuffit - they have a lot too answer for.
