There are many programs available on the market that can compress your files and create an archive, but not many of them are as handy as this free piece of software. This friendly freeware allows you to create and open archives with great ease. This program is very easy to use because all you need to do is: add the files or folders, set the level of compression and select the output path. It's that simple. There are two ways of adding the files that need to be compressed. You can add the files either by selecting their path or you can drag-and-drop them directly to the interface (this is a much faster way and will save you a great deal of time).

Don't let the name fool you. This program doesn't only open ZIP files. It can open any type of archive that you can find. But it can only create .zip and .7z formats.

A great feature of this program is the fact that it lets you split your archives according to their usage. This way you can archive files that need to be emailed, sent through RapidShare or stored on a CD or DVD. All this is done according to the size of the output file. For a more secure transfer, this program gives you the option of locking your archives. Therefore, anyone that happens to get your archive won't be able to open it without the password.

In conclusion, this is a great piece of software that allows you to create and open archived files. With a professionally-built and elegant interface, this free piece of software definitely worths a try.
