Editors' review

ZIP files are a great way to compress larger files into a format that's easy to store and share. Although Windows comes with a utility for creating ZIP files, it's pretty basic and doesn't offer a lot of options. ZipGenius Suite is a full-featured program that lets users easily create, edit, and share ZIP files.

The program's interface is plain and intuitive, with large, graphical buttons across the top. The opening screen lets users go straight to the program's major features, which include creating a new archive, opening an existing archive, extracting files from an archive, sending an archive as an e-mail attachment, and publishing an archive to the Web. In addition to this useful list of features, you can also manipulate files from within the program's menus or by right-clicking on particular files and selecting ZipGenius from the context menu. We found all of ZipGenius's features quite easy to use, especially the Web-based functions; we like that the program can launch the default e-mail client as well as a built-in FTP client for uploading files to the Web. Those who know only the basics about ZIP files should have little trouble with ZipGenius, but there's plenty here for advanced users, too: command line functions, CryptoZip, slideshows, and more. The program's online Help file is adequate, but could stand to be a little more detailed. Overall, we think that ZipGenius Suite is a great program for users of all levels; it's easy enough for beginners, but it has enough cool features to satisfy experienced zippers as well.

ZipGenius Suite installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to everyone.

    "Probably a good program but I am frustrated by it"

    March 31, 2012   |   By rogermanawatu

    Version: ZipGenius Suite Edition 6.3.2.3110

    Pros

    It can open zip files which i get occassionally
    It looks like a real program with options offered several different ways in the task bar, right clicking etc. Great but now how do I create a zip file out of and .exe or a .doc???

    Cons

    Now that I want to Zip a little office document, I find the program frustrates every attempt to do this, the help content is just not there even thought the headings are in order and it seems like all it can do is OPEN a huge range of archive files. I thought Creat New Archive would start the process..No. Maybe "Open". No! Where is this simple little function hidden. I am sure it is there hidden in the jargon and detail but after 4 hours I can't find it. I am used to a learning curve, so I read the help. Maybe I wil try the forums

    Summary

    Grrrr.
    Please fix this. Putting basic content, each step outlined in the help as to how to take a .doc and turn it into a .zip. then i will be happy to recommend your product.

    I installed Pea Zip 64 bit from this site. I opened it. I found the Go to Archiving Layout, found the file, clicked go and BAM, I had a zip file in less than a minute of first use of the program. Maybe Zip Genius was malfunctioning on me, I don't know but that is what i found. Wish you well ZG, hope you can fix this.
