Understanding the Difference
Converting to Another Archive Format
This means changing the RAR file into a different type of compressed file, like ZIP, 7Z, or tar.gz. It’s like turning one type of fruit (say, a banana) into another (like an apple) while keeping it inside its peel.
Extracting to Original File
This is about opening the RAR file and accessing the original files inside, be it documents, images, or videos. Think of it as peeling the banana to eat the fruit inside.
