Replacing TAR Archive with RAR Archive (Solved)
« on: September 30, 2013, 03:50:01 AM »
Greetings!

Is there a way to replace the tar archive with rar, when archiving folders? tried playing some codes with the line "~folder.tar" into "~folder.rar" but resulting to an error page.

all selected files are stored  uncompressed in an TAR file because it is the fastest method.
 if you want to create a rar archive, you have to do this by using an external program, but it will be much more tedious.

hmmm I see, well if replacing it will be more tedious, I'll still keep the TAR archiving then, :) Thank you for your feedback Mars.
