I received a message that contains a compressed RAR file.

How can find out who compressed the files and created RAR file? (the user account or computer name)

  • I think there is no way you could know from a RAR file..! – jjj Dec 10 '12 at 5:58

RAR file format does not contain such information. In fact, I'm not aware of any common archive format that automatically stores information about who created the archive, or on which computer it was created.
