    better winrar compression

    I am making a weekly backup batch file for my work directories.
    I am using robocopy to gather them all into a temp directory then using winrar command line to compress them and send them to my external hard drive. In the GUI for winrar there is a setting to select speed over quality. I believe the options are
    Fastest
    fast
    normal
    slow
    best


    Does anyone know of the command line option to make the compression 'best'?
    Thanks,
    -Adam
