UHARC (Uwe Herklotz archiver) is an algorithm developed by Uwe Herklotz from 1997 to 2005 for the lossless compression of data. The compressed files are usually smaller[1] than archives produced by competitors like eg. WinRAR[citation needed], WinZip, at the expense of time. The program is free to use; WinUHA[2] and UHARC GUI use its algorithms. UHARC uses the algorithms ALZ, PPM and LZP.

The .uha Format received continued support by BulkZip in 2015.
