Editors' Review

+
Clunky and underpowered, CAM UnZip doesn't have much to recommend it. Windows XP users can pass it right by, since it only reads and creates files in ZIP format, and XP has a ZIP function built-in. The program lets you password-protect your archives, but it lacks other essential features, such as the ability to create self-unpacking files or tune the compression level. The interface looks outdated and doesn't let you add files to an archive by using the Windows Explorer right-click menu. To be fair, CAM Unzip is free, but so are plenty of other, much better archival utilities.

"Works ok, somewhat slow, laking some essential features."

September 24, 2007  |  By CoolJavelin

 |  Version: CAM UnZip 4.0

Pros

It's free. The user interface is simple, In fact, so simple, the extra tabs arn't needed. It seems to be bug free, and I saw no adware.

Cons

It takes a long time to read the contents, but more important, it doesn't remember the last settings or folder you restored to. It selects 'extract all files' even when you have selected a subset, and it defaults to creating a folder. If you forget to check the settings each and every time, you can really screw stuff up.

"Brilliant program"

August 19, 2007  |  By freewheelingdom

 |  Version: CAM UnZip 4.0

Pros

Simple to use. Nice icons for your system zip folders.

Cons

At the end of extracting, the program leaves you with a hide button. I wish it would say Finish or Close instead. But you can't really complain when it's free.

"Easy to use, very efficient."

October 08, 2006  |  By lonelypurplefairy

 |  Version: CAM UnZip 4.0

Pros

This program is user friendly and a great tool. It makes compressing and decompressing files quick and easy. Even a child could master it. Takes up little room on your hard drive, and will automatically associate itself with ZIP files. I reccomend this to anyone in need of an unzipper. ^_^
