How to open and check rar file Mac?


Hi Isabella,

You need to have a 3rd Party software to open RAR archives in Mac. Here is a list of software you may use.

1. RAR Expander – This is a free software for Mac, but it is only limited to RAR file format. You can  download it from here

2.UnRarX – This is also a freeware but with some advanced features like restoring your RAR archives which are corrupted. Download link

3.StuffIt Expander – A more sophisticated tool which can handle multiple file formats, RAR, Zip, 7Zip, gzip, bzip, tar, stuffit archives and more. You can try the free version and upgrade if necessary. In order to use StuffIt, your Mac Operating system should be OS X 10.5 or higher and also compatible with OS X Lion. Download link

To extract your RAR archives, Launch the application and drag and drop your archive into the application window and the extraction will begin. In some cases where the archive is password protected you need to know the password in order to open the archive.

Hope this helps.
