Archive Converter is a command-line utility, whose main purpose is to aid users in testing and converting archives with your already-installed compression tool (e.g. WinRAR, WinZip, 7-Zip etc.).
The upper hand of a portable app
You are not required to go through the installation process, as this product is portable. As a consequence, the Windows registry is not going to be updated with any new entries without your approval.
Another important aspect is that you can easily run Archive Converter on any computer you come across, by simply copying the program files to a USB pen drive.
Options at your disposal
In order to launch this application, you are required to use the Command Prompt, which means that some users might find it difficult to handle it properly. Some help contents are provided, yet they are quite limited.
This program enables you to test archives, and detect them by ID or extension. In addition to that, it is possible to convert packs in subdirectories, while also keeping the source time.
Last but not least, you can make or update descriptions with ease, as well as input the destination directory if you do not want the resulted item to be saved in the source folder.
A final evaluation
To wrap it up, Archive Converter is a pretty decent piece of software when it comes to converting archives and testing them. Jobs are completed in a pretty fair amount of time and the system’s performance is not going to be burdened at all. However, pretty significant setbacks are that you are required to have an archiver on your PC, and that it is mostly dedicated to power users.
