Editors' review

Yet another archiving tool in an already crowded genre, this freeware utility fails to add anything new. PIM's small dialog-window interface offers simple drag-and-drop functionality, but precious little else. Don't expect an extensive instruction manual, or even a short introduction. This is a tool for those already familiar with archiving.

PIM will compress files. It will decompress PIM-created files, plus ZIP, PAK, and SFX archives. It quickly performs either action, and that's the extent of what PIM does well. Creating an archive and adding files should be a simple process, but this app forces users through extra steps to accomplish the task. It should be as simple as drag-and-drop the files onto the interface, or at least a single step pull-down. However, PIM doesn't allow adding multiple files to a single archive unless all the files are in the same folder. You can drag-and-drop files to decompress archives, but drop the wrong type of file and PIM displays an error message then closes itself. That's hardly user friendly.

We realize PIM is freeware, but this genre is full of robust freeware apps. PIM simply fails to add that makes it stand out in a crowded field.
