ZIP Converter is a lightweight command-line app developed to convert ZIP files from the 1.x version to 2.04.
While programs with intuitive consoles are more popular amongst users, some prefer to work with command-line tools, since they deliver quick solutions after writing just a few parameters.
One of the advantages of a command-line utility like ZIP Converter is that it does not require installation and does not work with Registry entries, thus reducing the risk of system errors. Furthermore, you can store it on a USB flash drive or similar storage unit, and run it on any computer.
So, all you have to do is bring up a Command Prompt window to start using this tool's features. It is possible to convert all ZIP items found in a location (batch processing is allowed), or to convert just the ones which were not created with the 2.04 maximum compression mode.
In addition, you can set the app to retain the original dates of the ZIP items and to remove all ZIP comments. Furthermore, you can add a comment by typing its full path name.
The lightweight app does not interfere with the runtime of other active processes, since it runs on a very low quantity of CPU and system memory. It has a good response time and worked well during our evaluation, without causing the operating system to hang, crash or display error notifications; we haven't encountered any issues.
Although it has not been updated for a very long time, ZIP Converter provides a simple solution to all users who want to convert ZIP files with the help of a command-line utility.
