Supporting a large variety of archive formats
Its main advantage is the wide array of formats it supports. A few quick examples are: ZIP, RAR, 7Z, EXE, TAR, CAB, ISO, NRG, XPI and LZH to name the most important ones. In addition, it can process password protected archives and is able to work with CD-R/RW drives.
Fast processing and easy to use
Its interface is extremely user-friendly, and completely different from what you’ve seen in similar software. It bundles a few menus and large buttons for access to its most important functions.
You can create a new archive, open it, extract it or send one via e-mail. The actual compression task is done via a Command Prompt window. We love the fact that ZipGenius didn't try to reinvent the wheel, but rather take advantage of the simplicity of the situation.
Thoroughly manage compression options
When you choose to extract an archive, you can opt to decompress all the files, only the selected ones, or by a certain format. In Options you can set ZipGenius to ask before overwriting existing files, as well as open the destination folder once the operation is successful.
Share documents via your email account
Sending an archive via e-mail is done by using the default mail client of your computer (e.g. MS Outlook Express, Mozilla Thunderbird). It is also possible to backup files, convert a compressed pack into a multi-volume archive, add comments, insert date and time, etc.
To end with
All in all, testing ZipGenius was a piece of cake. It’s simple enough for beginners, while power users can also spend quality time with it exploring the advanced features it has to offer. It takes advantage of basic system tools to get the process done as fast as possible, with little effort required on your behalf.
