WinRAR and WinZIP came from the same company as a powerful archive manger, which can not only backup your data and reduce the original size of email attachments, and also able to decompress the RAR compressed files, ZIP and other files too. WinRAR in other words an compression tool with several advanced functions added to help you organize your RARed or ZIPped file archives.
