Editors' Review

+

IZArc modestly bills itself as the ultimate archiving utility--we're not so sure about that "ultimate" bit. Nevertheless, IZArc is definitely one of the best archiving utilities out there. Compatible with a huge number of archive formats, all the major are represented, as well as 7z (from 7-Zip), ISO, BH (Black Hole), and TAR, among others. It can create archives for many of the formats it can read, too, including 7z and TAR. It doesn't, however, create GZ archives.

IZArc supports archive encryption as well. AES 128-, 192-, and 256-bit encoding and PKZip 2.0 both are available. The app offers a reasonable range of context-menu options in Explorer, although not as many as some of its competitors. The user interface is more similar to WinZip's than some other alternative archivers, with big, obnoxiously colored icons making it clear to everybody and their dog just which buttons do what--not that that's a bad thing. Overall, IZArc is an excellent example of a third-party publisher supporting multiple formats and options under one roof--but it's not the only option out there.

No cons; nothing bad.

"It works very well considering it is free to use."

March 26, 2009

 |  Version: IZArc 3.81 build 1550

Pros

It does the job it claims to do ... and well.

Cons

I just did not like the look of the icons, and I prefer Winrar's method of adding a comment to an archive. I think if I could not afford Winrar I would use 7zip.

"Awesome Utility, covers everything I need."

March 20, 2009  |  By daddykevin13

 |  Version: IZArc 3.81 build 1550

Pros

Unpack loads of archive types, compress anything you want. From RAR to ZIP and everything in between. Tiny, efficient, better than some expensive software, and yet, FREE.

Cons

None really, but if the author wanted feedback for a tweak, maybe a sexier User Interface. Polished up a bit. Functionally, they are spot on, no Cons to report.

Summary

Get this, use it. It is outstanding. Software done right, by someone who knows their stuff.

"Good deal for any one who needs a (un-)zip program"

March 10, 2009  |  By vanderwinden

 |  Version: IZArc 3.81 build 1550

Pros

Free, fast en simpicity. What more do you need?

Cons

Don't like programs that 'push others out'. IZArc took the job over from an other zip programma that I used.

Summary

Recommendable to anyone who needs a zip/unzip program and who is just like me, a novice in this field.
