You can find a large variety of programs on the market that can handle archives, but few of them are as fast and reliable as this free piece of software. This freeware provides you with a fast and secure way to create or open archives and works with both Windows and Linux operating systems. A large variety of options are at your disposal to let you fully customize your archives according to your needs. You can encrypt your archives, you can select various methods of compression, you can create and open various types of archives and much more. You even have the possibility of adding comments to your archives if you need (in case of encrypted archives for example).

This freeware is available in a large variety of languages and it is easy to use. The professionally-build graphical interface helps you create or open archive faster because all the buttons for every task (archive, extract, lock, etc.) that you can choose from are available on the toolbar. Therefore, you don't need to search through all the options and menus for a specific task.

Compared to the popular archive managers like WinRar, WinZip or 7-Zip, this piece of software has many of their functions but still lacks some of them, like multi-volume archives, data segmentation or storing of file attributes. But they are planned to be fixed in the upcoming versions.

To sum it all up, this freeware can help you create and open archives with impressive speed. The creation of archives is fully customizable as you can select from a large variety of options and security features. You can create and open any kind of archives (even self-extracting archives) and you have the possibility of adding comments to them.
