Editors' Review


It offers some niceties not found in the Windows compression tool, but Zipghost lacks any features that make it stand out in a category rich with options. The program's straightforward interface consists of large icons, a file menu, and viewing pane to see archived files or the files ready to be archived. It's fairly easy to understand, but the Help file only has information on buying or upgrading the program. We wish more attention had been paid to helping new users.

The best thing the program adds is context menu integration. Several options for zipping files, including instantly archiving selected files in individual archives, adding them to an existing archive, and archiving then emailing the file are just a click away. You'll usually have the option of performing an action instantly or opening a tabbed interface to choose the compression level, add a password, or set the archive file path. Zipghost's speed was really impressive -- even with a large batch of files it created archives almost instantly.

A context menu option to instantly zip an entire folder would have been a nice addition. You'll have the standard 30-days to give Zipghost a test run, but we suggest you also try a few other file compression tools for comparison.

"Good but superfluous"

April 07, 2006  |  By LLan

 |  Version: Zipghost 3.6 build 505


Zipghost is a good and solid application. You get tips and other help. The UI is simple, but looks somehow old.


If you have WinZip installed on your PC, you absolutely don't need to download this program, it's superfluous. It has the same functions.
