Editors' Review

by   / May 08, 2009

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.
