Editors' Review

Download.com staff
A good alternative to many ZIP applications on the market, this program is both easy to use and reliable. ZipWorx Explorer compresses and decompresses ZIP file archives. We really like the program's interface, which, despite some ad windows (which can be closed), is well-designed and amusingly cartoon-like. For each file, you can view its original size, its compressed size, the date of compression, the file type, and even whether the file is encrypted. ZipWorx also allows you to automatically compress a file by simply right-clicking a file and choosing the compression option from the modified drop-down menu. Program menus also allow you to set a default ZIP folder or create multivolume ZIP files. Overall, this is a great program that makes zipping programs a snap.

Developer's Description

Create and manage ZIP files.

ZipWorx Explorer offers more security and encryption by offering not only the standard ZIP-encryption and enhanced ZIP-compression modes, but also full support for strong AES encryption (128-, 192-, and 256-bit). This is a complete ZIP-utility package with tools, modules, and add-ons such as wizards, a search-ZIP-files tool, and a desktop tray icon. The graphical user interface features basic and advanced Add Files modes. The program is for novice and advanced users. You can unzip with one click to the desktop or local directory and save a list of ZIP files in HTML. The program has true drag-and-drop and automatically expands shortcuts to files when you're adding to ZIP files.

Minimize or restore to the desktop tray icon. The drag-and-drop docking windows, such as the Hints and Tips window and the Help window, are newly designed. Get seven-day free phone support, unlimited e-mail support, updates, and a free CD. Version 2.5 may include unspecified updates, enhancements, or bug fixes.
