Editors' reviewThis file-archive utility's strong feature set and impressive flexibility make it a reasonable substitute for the ubiquitous WinZip. PowerArchiver supports several compression formats, including the new 7-Zip format, which offers extremely high compression ratios. You also can encrypt your archives using one of five secure algorithms. The configuration menu lets you customize almost every feature, including a password manager for encrypted archives, a self-extracting wizard, and an autobackup tool. The batch ZIP tool compresses hundreds of files in one shot, and the multiextract tool unpacks hundreds of archives at once. The program works swiftly and reliably and now supports unlimited-size ZIP archives and full-program skinning. Anyone who needs to work with archive files will find PowerArchiver a versatile, affordable alternative.
PowerArchiver is an archive utility that provides support for most compressed and encoded files, as well as access to many powerful features and tools through an easy-to-use interface that seamlessly integrates with Windows Explorer. PowerArchiver natively supports ZIP, 7-Zip, CAB, LHA (LZH), TAR, TAR.GZ, TAR.BZ2, BH, RAR, ARJ, ARC, ACE, ZOO, GZ, BZIP2, XXE, MIME, UUE, and YENC file formats plus ISO, BIN and NRG disc images, with compression profiles that store frequently used settings.
PowerArchiver creates and works with unlimited-size ZIP archives and features enhanced 7-Zip support to offer the highest compression ratios. Encrypt your archives using five methods, including 256-bit AES, and store your frequently used passwords. Back up your work with PA Backup Express and FTP support, and create powerful self-extracting (SFX) archives.
