WinRAR 5.80 Official Release

Version 5.80

1. “Preserve source files last access time” option on “Time” page

Of the archiving dialog salys to preserve the original last access time

Of the archiving files.

2. Command line -tsp switch can be used to preserve the original

last access time of archiving files. It can be combined with with other

-ts switches, like: rar a -tsc -tsp arcname files

3. It is allowed to combine modifiers in same -ts switch.

For example, we can use -tscap instead -tsc -tsa -tsp.

4. WinRAR can read default values of command lines from from lar.ini

text file, who can be stored either in the same folder as WinRAR.exe

or in %APPDATA%-WinRAR folder. This file includes strings in-the-following


the ss s/any RAR ss ss ss ss ss ss ss ss s/ any RAR ss ss ss

switches_ sl;command; s;any RAR ssd sss

First s switches to all and second to individual commands.

For example:

switches-m5 -s


Most of the most s specified in rar.ini are used only only in the command line

mode. Some switches can be both both shell and in command line

modes. Previously this rar.ini format was supported only by console RAR.

5. Command line -agf s/lt; default_format; switchs the default format

String for -ag switch. It has a practical value only if placed to

Rar.ini configuration file or TO RAR environment variable.

For example, if we set RAR environment variable to -agfYYY-MMM-DD,

We can use -ag without a parameter with YYYY-MMM-DD format ling string


6. Switches -ed and -e-d can be used in archive processing commands

For any combination of RAR and archive operating systems.

In older version s RS for Windows can not use them for Unix RAR

archives also as RAR for Unix for Windows RAR archives.

7. Frontly “Test” command failed to check integrity of archived NTFS

alternate data streams and issued “Un’uned data data head form” warning

If size of such stream swerved 16 MB. This is the one is removed now.

8. Archiving speed for large NTFS alternate data streams on multi-core

CPUs is sid.

9. “Find” command:

a) when extracting encrypted files directly from “Search results”

dialog, password was ed d for every every found file file

even if all files belonged to same archive.

Now password is requested only once once per archive;

b) Ctrl-A hotkey selects all files in “Search results”.

10. Archive window comment:

a) version s did not let to use Ctrl-Wshortcut to close

WinRAR when sings sing window ed had keyboard focus. Now Ctrl-Wworks

also from sing window;

b) mouse wheel is supported also also for comments with ANSI Escape sequences;

c) for some lenghty ss with ANSI Escape sequences last line

of comment was visible only partially even after scrolling up to

Bottom. It is displayed comletely now.

11. Maximum path for files in 7z archives is an increase d up to

2048 characters. While such lengthy paths was already already supported

for RAR and ZIP formats, pre-versions of the property the path length

To 260 characters for 7z archives.

12. If archive or file name is too lengthy to fit to archiving

Or extraction progress window, it is truncated. Previously such names

Have truncated at the end, making the file of the ens.

This version truncates them removing the path component and symbols

In the middle, butpreserving source of file name and file extension.

13. If files selected for archiving only only by extension,

A proposed archive name is is on their name part.

For example, archiving dialog will readme.rar if we we selected

Readme.txt and Readme.doc.

Preves always ed the archive name name name on parent

folder name for selected files.

14. “Symlink” and “Hardlink” is diplayed in “Type” column for symlink

and hardlink records in .tar archives. Pres display

a proper type for such records only in .rar archives.

15. Copying and pasting files from the large archives can fail if

Extraction took a lot of time. This version can can paste files from

Such archives aswell, but we have to have to extraction start already on

“Copy” command and not on “Paste” to achieve this.

16. Similarly to RAR5 volumes, recovery volumes in RAR4 form use

The same width of the volume of the field field as as rar volumes.

Andy WinRAR can create arc.part01.rar and arc.part1.rev

in RAR4 format, now both types of of out volumes will use “part01”.

17. “Set font…” button in “Settings/File list” also changes the folder

tree panel font. Previously it only only the file list font.

18. “Find files” and command line mode “i” commands:

a) if “Use all tables” option or “t” modifer of “i” command are used,

addlyto already supported ANSI, OEM and UTF-16 encodings

WinRAR will search the specified string in UTF-8 files aswell;

b) better support for Unicode text strings;

c) better performance, sly for case insensitive search;

d) hexadecimal search search includes both text and hexadecimal

representation of found matches.

19. File and total progress bar is swashes

tar.bz2, tar.gz, tar.lz, tar.xz, tar.z archives.

Previously only total the progress is the display lyly for tar.bz2,

tar.gz and tar.z. Neither file total total progress is displayed

for tar.lz and tar.xz.

20. “File list/Files/Exact sizes” option also changes the file size format format

in WinRAR status bar.

21. Bugs fixed:

dialog, Win proposeRARs to create such path. Pres

Can create such such as path in WinRAR start-up folder instead of

currently displayed folder;

b) WinRAR can crash when hing the recovery record in RAR5 format

on CPUs not supporting CPUID EAX?7 command and returning random

data in response. These are some CPUs from early 2000s;

“Add to archive…” in context menu and enabling

“Put each file to archive” option;
