Archive file is a file with .zip or .rar extension. It has been widely used for users to save a great number of files into one single file. You can collect photos, documents, videos, and even programs into an archive file and then transfer or send it to other storage devices or computers.
However, archive loss issue is still inevitable. A RAR file which contains some important photos or documents might be lost from your computer due to your accidental deletion or formatting. Under the circumstances, you will need an archive recovery program. Recoverit, or Recoverit for Mac, is a useful tool for you to perform ZIP recovery or RAR recovery with ease. This program can explore disks on your computer or storage devices that are connected with your computer and find deleted or formatted archive files instantly. If you are a Mac user, you can also restore archive files with Recoverit for Mac.
