    Is it better to zip files, and then rar the group. Or to rar the files and zip the group?

    I thought rar and zip were both compression utilities. I'm not sure you'd want to double compress your data, could lead to data loss.

    Are you thinking of tar and zip like in the linux world??

    I've lost confidence in winzip ( long story).

    WinRar alone has always been good for me.
