    Go with the Unarchiver! It's the best software I have ever used for compressed file formats.

    I'm pretty sure StuffIt Expander can't handle RAR files, but I could be wrong.

    I used a program call RAR Expander. Worked like a charm, and I'm pretty sure it was free.

    You should also download MacHacha for those pesky files which read like:

    wmv.001
    wmv.002
    wmv.003
    etc.

    And I find that RarExpander is a much more elegant program for rar files than is stuffit expander.

    Anyone know of a program that will allow you to make rar files? I would like to create rar archives in several segments...dunno if there is anything that supports this on OS X.

    Thanks.
