UnZip, UnRar Files Online

UpdateYou can checkout 2zip, an alternative site to unrar, unzip files; since wobzip isn't working anymore.

Now-a-days almost every computing task is moving from our desktops to the Web. Even a web service to uncompress Zip and Rar archive files is available!
So if you want to quickly uncompress archive files and don't have the software for it (which I doubt), read on.

A web site I came across today is called Wobzip. What's does it do?
Wobzip is a free online service which lets you uncompress archive files online, for free. Just upload your zip, rar and other archive files to Wobzip and press the uncompress button to get all the files in the archive.

Pros:
At present Wobzip supports 7z, ZIP, GZIP, TAR, BZIP2, RAR, CAB, ARJ, Z, CPIO, RPM, DEB, LZH, SPLIT, CHM, ISO file formats and there is an upload limit size of 100 Mb.

Cons:
Wobzip doesn't let you create archive files at the moment. Also, you cannot uncompress files from password-protected archives.

Quick verdict:
Can be useful when the archive files are small in size..

Yesterday in my apartments was my friends-programmers,and they spoke about one tool-rar the file is corrupt,they admire it,friends found it in internet and tool wondered their,as they said tool has free status,moreover it has many probabilities and it can too solve problems with encountered CRC errors and other failures, when opening sfx and RAR archives, you have come to the right place and we know, how to help,compatible with the PC platform and all supported versions of Microsoft Windows operating system,can be installed on any PC, despite its CPU speed, the efficiency of saving corrupt RAR files will be always the same,moves to the analysis and start the parsing of selected files with RAR or sfx extension,automatically moves to the next step and permits previewing the files, that are stored in the corrupted archive as well as their recovery prognosis,can estimate the results and see, which files can be restored without errors and which ones cannot be extracted.
