Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
This program does the basics of creating and uncompressing various archive formats using Windows Explorer, a wizard, or a standard interface, but it accomplishes its functions with elan. PicoZip's basic icon interface is simple but intuitive. Creating an archive is a matter of clicking an icon and choosing files. PicoZip's wizard gives novices an understanding of archives and simple instructions for their creation. Expert users will gravitate to the menus, where they'll find such advanced features as file virus scan, archive splitter, and various batch functions. A shopping list of configurations help personalize the functions. Useful bonus features include the ability to burn an archive to a CD, send it by e-mail, or upload it to via FTP. With its three interfaces and numerous functions, PicoZip is suitable for all users. Novices will favor the wizard, and experts will easily configure PicoZip to their personal specifications.

Developer's Description

PicoZip is a file compression utility packed with lots of user-friendly features that makes it a joy to use. This is a complete file compression and backup solution in one application. It offers extensive support for various archive formats found on the Internet, such as ZIP, RAR, ACE, ARC, ARJ, BH, CAB, GZ, JAR, LHA, LZH, TAR, TGZ, WAR, Z, ZOO, MIM, XXE and UUE, without the need for any third party software. PicoZip also integrates seamlessly to Windows to allow you to perform most archive operations from within Windows Explorer without having to run PicoZip first.

The integrated quick backup feature in PicoZip makes routine backups fast and easy. Just create a backup set with the necessary backup options and files to backup, then you can run it every time you want to do the same backup. Power users will appreciate the fact that PicoZip comes with powerful filtering, search and batch processing capabilities to make managing archives a breeze. Version 4.02 fixes minor bugs.
