Windows 7: Winrar profiles for different save locations

Winrar profiles for different save locations

So I have a winrar profile setup and it creates the rars to a specific location I would like to ask how to create another profile and have it create the rars to yet another location.

I have tried but couldn't find anyway to make this happen so maybe I'm missing something.

Any help :)


Profile 1 would save to - C:\Users\admin\downloads

Profile 2 would save to - C:\Users\admin\Documents

I am not sure if you can do this with a single click, there is a profile organizer in Options menu-Settings-Compression tab. There is also a favorites menu.

You can just SHIFT+right click the compressed file and "Send To" whichever folder you want.

Also you can customize Send To with Send To Context Menu

Thanks for the reply but it's not exactly what I'm looking for.

Lets try something else, is it possible to say create a profile but I would like the word "[backup]" before the file name.

I don't want to have to constantly right click > add to archive... > manually type [backup] before the file name.
