Hi, I'm totally new to Mac, I just bought a MBP last week and I'm expending time to learn it. I just want to know what do you use for unraring or unziping files?

Thank you

Welcome to the forum

OSX Natively supports zipping and unzip but for RARs you'll need something like Stuffit free expander
StuffIt Expander for Mac 2010 - Expand Zip, Rar, Sit files

External hard disk acquisition addict - but admitting the problem is the first step to a robust backup

UnrarX or The Unarchiver for unzipping. SimplyRAR for making. UnrarX is good if you get password protected files, as Unarchiver seems to struggle. Otherwise it's a great program.

UnRarX - Mac OS X RAR Extraction Utility

The Unarchiver

I would actually recommend BetterZip. Not only can it handle all of the formats WinRAR does, but it's one of the few Mac archive utilities that actually shows you the content of the file before you unarchive it, allowing you to select the bits and pieces you need rather than do the whole thing if need be.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

A point I want to say:

The Unarchiver and Better Zip work most of the time as stated above. But they do not work with passworded .rar archives. I have only gotten UnRarX to work with passworded .rar archives. Just add in the password first then extract the archive and it works just fine.

Yes, exactly as I mentioned.
