RAR is a proprietary archive file format that supports data compression, error recovery, and file spanning.


ZIP is a format for compressed file archives, allowing packaging of multiple files and directories into a single file.



By the way i would suggest creating rar self-extracting archives instead of zip self-extracting archives as with rar compression the exe file with the right switches for best compression using additionally also solid archive options could be much smaller than with zip compression
