Cat Compress 1.05
Straight-forward and approachable interface
Subsequent to a brief installation process, you can start working with the tool right away, either from its main window or from your context menu, where it automatically integrates, to offer you easier access to its main functions.
The main screen of Cat Compress displays a tree view structure, listing the main folders on your system; it works similar to a file explorer, as it lets you browse and access various items, opening them using the default software.
Swiftly extract files or compress them to several different archive formats
The application supports a large amount of archive formats, including ZIP, RAR, TAR, CATCP and 7Z, which allow both compression and decompression operations; others, such as ISO, TGZ, WIM, 001, DMG, ARJ, RPM, HFS and many more, can only be accessed and extracted.
When creating a new archive, you can select the files you wish to include, then set the preferred format, checking the appropriate box if you wish for it to be sell-extracting. You can also decide the save location and name, as well as the ‘Update Mode’.
Moreover, Cat Compress features encryption abilities, enabling you to protect the contents of your archives by means of user-defined passwords, the available algorithm being AES-256. Optionally, you can split it into size-based volumes. When complete, you can press on the assigned button, generating your file in just moments.
A reliable archiving instrument you can resort to
In conclusion, Cat Compress is a useful and easy to understand program that aims to cater to all your archiving needs, allowing you to extract and compress files with just a few mouse moves required, also featuring password-protection functions.
