Editors' review

Its wide range of formats and functions help PowerArchiver compete in a category dominated by WinZip. The archive utility supports a large number of 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 program works swiftly and reliably. 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 multi-extract tool unpacks hundreds of archives at once. The program now supports unlimited-size ZIP archives. Anyone who needs to work with archive files will find PowerArchiver a versatile, affordable alternative.

    "All the features you need"

    December 08, 2013   |   By Randy Bell

    Version: PowerArchiver 2013 14.01.06

    Pros

    wil open all the archive formats you the user can possibly come across. PA has improved in speed of opening and extraction. Versatile, plenty of choices to customize compression levels, etc.

    Cons

    none, unless you want something free

    Summary

    A friend on an online Security Forum introduced me to this product years ago; and I've used it ever since. Compares favorably to the other major products in this category: WinZip, WinRar, etc. Has all the features you the user could want, and then some. Updated often, with a very active community of users. PA has its own forum; the developers seem very committed to constant improvement of this product: seeking to improve opening speed; speed of extraction; shell integration; even integration with the ftp protocol, and your email client. Highly recommend.
