How to Make a Zip File With WinRAR With No Compression


Although many people take advantage of compression in their archives, the process of compressing large or numerous small files can take time both to create the archive and to extract it. Whether you are trying to consolidate a collection of small files or you are a server administrator who wishes to take a backup with minimal load on a taxed CPU, uncompressed archives will help you to use the archive's files more quickly. WinRAR offers a "store" mode that does not apply any compression to files it creates.

  • Open the Start menu and type winrar. Click "WinRAR" from the result list.

  • Click "Add" on the top-left of the screen.

  • Select individual or multiple files to add to the directory in the "Browse..." window.

  • Select "Zip" below "Archive format."

  • Click the drop-down menu below "Compression method" and choose "Store."

  • Enter a name for the archive in "Archive Name" and click "OK."

  • Click "Browse" on the top-right of the dialog and choose a folder on your computer or network to save the file to. Click "OK."

  • Click "OK" to complete the zip file creation. The resulting file will be as large as the sum of its individual files because no compression is used.
