Adding Files to a New RAR File

This section provides a tutorial example on how to add files to a new RAR file using WinRAR.

1. Run WinRAR and navigate the directory where your files are located.

2. Select the files and/or directories that you want to add to a RAR file and select menu "Commands" > "Add files to archive". The "Archive name and parameters" dialog box shows up.

3. Enter the file and location of the new RAR file, like c:\temp\test1.rar, in the "Archive name" field and click the OK button as shown in the picture below:

4. The selected files and/or directories will be added to the RAR file.

5. Select menu File > Exit to close WinRAR.

6. Look at c:\temp\test1.rar. This is the RAR file that contains the selected files and/or directories

WinRAR seems to be more user-friendly than WinZip. It can takes files and directories together, and automatically adds sub-directories to the RAR file.
