A new interface kicks off TurboZip 8, a reliable compression alternative to WinZip. The easy-to-use archiving tool now supports an even wider range of formats, including 7Z, MS Office 2007 archives, ISO, and BZIP. Two new features make it worth considering: the robust preview feature that makes peering into archived files much simpler, and the Auto Compress Script, which allows you to build new archives based on predetermined criteria.
The preview window can show the contents of not just JPEG and DOC files, but MSI, EXE, and others. It's also blazingly fast, and previewed large files without delay. A new thumbnail preview option and slider enables a more visual representation of your file contents, perfect for pictures but also scalable for documents and HTML. The Auto Compress Script utilizes the same creation Wizard as the Create Zip, and the continuity makes learning how to do it dead simple.
TurboZip no longer requires personal information to be submitted before installing the trial, but it does opt users in to installing TurboZip Express. This can be opted out of. The interface could be better optimized, but the triple-pane mode should feel familiar to most users. It's not hard to navigate, even if it feels a little unpolished compared with the company logo at the bottom. Any level of users will find TurboZip a handy and simple compression program to add to their system's toolbox.
TurboZIP is a total archive management tool with an easy to use interface, opens Zip, RAR and extracts all archives, compression (9 levels), scheduling, and internally preview 200-plus formats so that you know exactly what's inside an archive and making it quickly accessible to every user.
The system provides complete internal support for opening and viewing all the popular archive and e-mail attachment formats, and creates ZIP files as well as JAR and LHA formats. Among the most popular of its list of the TurboZIP talents are viewing capabilities: any file within an archive or e-mail can be picked and previewed, using one of over 200 lightning-quick system viewing filters, including thumbnail display of photo file list. This strength, combined with the organizational features of catalogs for grouping files on your hard disk and removable media, lets you explore new ways of using archives.
A special TurboZIP feature is its Auto Compress Script, easy to use files that store the details of creating a particular archive file so you can use it again and again, such as for file backups and archives you need to remake frequently.
