Editors' Review

UltimateZip, a tool for extracting and compressing files, is an excellent choice when working with ZIP files. Even the free version is powerful and contains a wide range of useful features.

Pros

Modern interface: UltimateZip looks sleek and modern. The buttons are large and easy to understand, and the navigation structure is reminiscent of the "ribbon" in the Microsoft suite. It's always a bonus when a program is easy to navigate and looks good while you do so.

Archive creation wizard: When you need to create a new archive, UltimateZip holds your hand and walks you through every step of the process. The archive creation wizard is easy to use, and the great interface ensures you understand exactly what you're looking at every step of the way.

Batch options: UltimateZip comes with options for both batch creation and batch extraction. This is extremely helpful if you're dealing with huge numbers of compressed files. You can speed up your workflow and just let the process run in the background by utilizing batch processing instead of dealing with each file individually.

Cons

Can't create RAR: Although UltimateZip can extract RAR files, it doesn't have the ability to create them.

Bottom Line

UltimateZip is a fully featured tool for handling and creating archived files. If you work with these types of files regularly, it is an excellent option. It's also a good option for the beginner who hasn't worked with these types of files a great deal.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of UltimateZip 7.0.8.1.

Pros

Easy to use

Cons

Don't care for having to pay for it but still worth it for the price and much better then paying an arm and leg for Unzip.

"Still one of the best zip programs for my use."

December 04, 2009  |  By Cycler

 |  Version: UltimateZip 5.0.1

Pros

My favorite feature is the simple exploring of zipped files before unzipping, and the F1 access to standard help files is reassuring if I get confused or puzzled.

Cons

Took me a few minutes to get used to the user interface. As much my old habits as a Con of the program.

Summary

Plenty of features to explore if you are new to zip files and encryption, as well as a simple way to assure backup of data. As a heavy user of flashdrives, the compression and security for use at client sites is very comforting. A clean effective utility.

"It works."

January 23, 2008  |  By ethyrdude

 |  Version: UltimateZip 2007 3.2

Pros

I like the fact that I can use this for free, I never archive files but so many people do and to access their files I need something that can open their archives.

Cons

I am not crazy about the annoying message telling me about evaluate this and purchase that message that pops up on every usage. If people didn't archive their files I would never use it. If this product ever gets to the point of being annoying with the reminder to pay and register, I'll just use my Linux box to open archives, at least with that OS I get free unarchivers.
