The best tool I have found to extract 7z and rar files is The Unarchiver and you can download it straight from the Mac App Store here. It’s really simple to use as it sets itself up as the default unarchiver on your Mac so once installed you don’t have to do anything. Navigate to the location of your.RAR files and then click select the files. If you have a separate Finder window open already showing the files you can also simply drag-and-drop the files into the window for the Dr. After you have located and selected your files, click on Extract. This will uncompress the files for you. Decompress RAR files also in Mac. UnRarX is an application for Mac developed by Cocoa that gives us the possibility to decompress RAR files using the interface of the program and not having to use command files.

  • If -idn switch is used together with -t or -df in console RAR when archiving, it additionally disables 'Deleting ' or 'Testing ' messages, normally issued by these switches.
  • Also -idn disables directory creation messages when extracting a file to non-existing directory.

NOTE: If you need a user-friendly RAR interface for macOS, we recommend UnRarX.

If you recently switched from Windows to Mac, you probably what to know what is the equivalent of WinRAR on Mac. Fortunately the developer of WinRAR offers a Mac version called RAR for Mac OS X.

RAR for Mac OS X is a command line tool specially designed to help users compress, uncompress and encrypt files in the RAR format.

Unfortunately, RAR for Mac OS X does not offer a user interface and all operations must be run from a Terminal window. In other words, RAR for Mac OS X is not as simple to use on Mac as it was on Windows.

The RAR for Mac OS X package comes with a 40 days trial period and features the rar and the unrar tools, rar for creating archives and unrar for extracting RAR files.

If you want to be able to run the RAR for Mac OS X utilities from any folder on your Mac you can copy them into usr/local/bin, the folder where all UNIX programs a normal user would use should be installed.

In order to extract a RAR archive you have to open a Terminal window, go to the folder where you want to extract the files and type the unrar command line followed by the 'x' argument and the path of the archive you want to use for extraction.

To list all available command and switches you only have to run the rar or unrar command line utility from a Terminal window and a usage message will be displayed.

RAR for Mac OS X provides a long list of features that enables you to create password protected archives, batch extract RAR files and more.

Sadly, RAR for Mac OSX comes with support exclusively for RAR files, ZIP and other formats being supported only by the Windows version.

All-in-all, RAR for Mac OS X is a powerful and versatile utility that can help you extract and create RAR archives. Unfortunately, the lack of user interface pushes away newcomers and unexperienced users.
