It doesn't support any other format, but this dependable and effective file-compression tool archives files into a ZIP file. SimpleZip has a simple, easy-to-use interface with buttons for its main functions. In our tests, it allowed drag-and-drop functionality for easily adding, opening, and extracting files. It created archives of the same file size compared to WinZip, although they're slightly larger compared to other file-compression utilities. In addition to only offering one compression format, SimpleZip doesn't integrate with Explorer's context menu or provide password protection for compressed files. Nonetheless, this freeware is still worth a try for both novice and advanced users as a no-cost tool for saving disk space or making files more manageable for sending.
