Unzip downloads, create your own Zip files and password-protect (encrypt) confidential documents with PowerZip - an easy to use file compression & security program.
PowerZip Compression / Extraction Wizards make working with archives (such as Zip files) easy while providing an array of advanced features. The Wizards are quick to use because they have only a small number of steps; some steps can be switched of if not needed, others can be skipped to use default options. Pop-up tooltips explain the purpose of each button or control.
You can use PowerZip's 128-bit & 256-bit AES encryption to create password-protected Zip files to store confidential documents and files or send them through insecure channels, such as e-mail.
PowerZip supports two new compression methods (Deflate64 and BWT) to provide you with a higher level of compression than is normally available in Zip files. Standard Zip compression is also supported for compatibility with other Zip programs.
PowerZip adds itself to the Windows Explorer right-click menu, enabling you to perform common compression tasks (zipping, unzipping, encryption, splitting) directly from Windows Explorer / My Computer.
PowerZip supports 12 types of archives - PowerZip can create & unzip Zip, Cab, Tar, Bz2, Gz, Arj and Ha archives; PowerZip can also unzip Rar, Ace, Jar, Lzh and Z archives.
If you routinely perform compression tasks (such as daily backups), you can automate them by recording PowerZip Macro Files. Macro Files allow you to repeat the recorded compression (or extraction) task with a simple double-click; you can also run PowerZip Macro Files as part of an automated script.
If you need to distribute large files to friends, colleagues or customers who might not have a Zip program, PowerZip allows you to create a self-extracting archive that can be unzipped without requiring a compression program.
