Never archive without QuickPar and WinRAR! Whenever I backup to removable media, on a secondary hard drive, or online, I will compress and encrypt with WinRAR, and then create 10% ~ 75% parity repair files with QuickPar. Depending on the size of the parity files, I can rebuild whole missing sections or servery damaged files with ease. These parity files are quite widely utilized among USENET newsgroup users, when sharing large files.


You do know that WinRAR has an option to add recovery data to an archive? So you don't need PAR files for RAR archives.

That is true, but PAR2 recovery files are better in my opinion than the built in recovery that WinRAR offers.
