Editors' Review

Download.com staff
The one advantage of this otherwise lackluster compression utility is its wide selection of encryption protocols, including 2,048-bit PP2048. Otherwise, it's average at best. The austere interface doesn't permit dragging and dropping files from Windows Explorer. Even unpacking the setup file is frustrating, taking well over a minute. WinZit can't create self-extracting files, so forget e-mailing your archives unless your recipients have also bought and installed the program. However, WinZit's worst problem is instability. It crashed several times when we tried compressing folders of only 10MB. Moreover, the compression speed is very low. WinZit's encryption capabilities may tempt people who work with sensitive data, but they're probably better off keeping their files safe some other way.
