    If any of you are interested Rarlabs now has available a 64-bit version of their popular winrar. If interested here is the link, http://www.rarlabs.com/download.htm. This is a beta and winrar is shareware.

    I played with it a little yesterday but never really timed it. So far it has been stable like no file corruption.

    Does the 64-bit version offer the 64-bit conversion methods now also?

    Though I must ask why not just use 7zip? It has had a 64-bit version for a while now...
