RAR is a popular archive format introduced by WinRAR for Windows platform, and ported to Linux (only as extractor) by the same Author of WinRAR Eugene Roshal.
RAR format is well known for the high compression ratio archives, strong encryption and advanced data recovery capabilities (recovery records).
PeaZip, freeware and open source utility, supports by default RAR browsing, testing and extraction on Linux and Windows, through the open source implementation rewritten as free software by Igor Pavlov in 7-Zip and p7zip.
To extract one or more RAR files through PeaZip you can:
"Keyfile" is optional, leave it blank if you don't want to rely on two factor authentication - use of keyfile increases security over password only encryption since also having access to the keyfile will be required to perform the extraction.
Spanned RAR files (archives split in multiple volumes) are usually named with extension .R00, .R01, .R02... or .001, or .001.RAR. It is usually needed to save all the files of the set in the same folder, and to double click on the first volume (the one with the lowest number in the suffix), in order to open or extract the whole archive - the procedute will take care of merging data spanned in different volumes when needed.
