How to open and extract RAR files

RAR is a popular archive format introduced by WinRARfree rar extractor 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.r01 files and p7zip.
To extract one or more RAR files through PeaZip you can:
  • Use context menu entry "Extract here" or "Extract here (to new folder)"
  • Use context menu entry "Extract..." to be asked for output path and other options
  • Open the archive in PeaZip and use "Extract" button (you can chose output path, enter password and other options before confirming with "Ok") to extract selected object, or Ctrl+E for quick extraction simply specifying output path.
  • Open the archive in PeaZip and drag desired objects from the application to the system (the opposite can be used to add objects to the archive)
  • Open the archive in PeaZip and doubleclick on an archived file to preview it
To enter password in PeaZip click in the locker icon encrypt rar in the status bar (in the file/archive browser) or the locker icon below output address field in extraction or archiving interfaces, or click Tools > Enter password / keyfile in main menu, or press F9.
"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.
