Editors' Review

This application adds nothing but another compression method to an already overcrowded genre. PIM Archiver's dialog-style interface window uses simple function pull-down menus and a single drag-and-drop function. Without any instructions, this app expects users to be familiar with archiving functions.

In addition to compressing files to its own format, PIM will decompress QUAD, ZIP, and Quake archives. We weren't impressed with PIM's compression rate or limited compression methods. Neither were we impressed with PIM's operation. PIM compresses folders, but otherwise will not allow more than one file in an archive. Most tools in the genre allow users to add files from any folder to a new archive. Nor can users create an archive by dragging and dropping files to the interface. Users can only drag-and-drop a PIM archive to the interface to decompress it.

Attempt to open the wrong file format and PIM Archiver displays a simple notification and closes. Even as freeware, PIM Archiver isn't worth the time or trouble for any level user.

"An "Ok" program, but needs a decent "Help" file, even one paragraph would help."

Pros

Small, simple.

Cons

The novice user might have a problem with this program without a good "Help" file.
