We often download large numbers of files such as video/audio files, games, E-journal, Flash animations, applications and so on from websites which provide download free. But we will find that the space of our hard disk does not big enough to store so many files and data sooner or later. That makes our computer running more and more slowly and astatically. We usually compress the files in order to saving enough space to store more data and files. So an excellent software that create compressed archives is very important for us. Which one do you use commonly, such as WINZIP, WINARJ, UC, LHA, ACE32, WinRAR etc? PowerArchiver is my favorite archiver in numerous of compression tools. Did you use PowerArchiver before? I think it is an ideal solution for me to create and manage compressed archives. If you are looking for an archiver I commend PowerArchiver to you and I can insure that you will love it soon. Following is the detailed introduction of this powerful zip/unzip tool.
PowerArchiver is a powerful archive utility that supports all common compression formats (ZIP, RAR, ACE, ARJ, LHA, 7zip etc.) and allows us to open and create compressed archives. It integrates with Windows Explorer, allowing for easy management of compressed file types from the right-click menu. PowerArchiver includes a built-in password manager, optional archive encryption (256 bit AES), built-in 7zip support, automatic backup, batch de/compression and more. PowerArchiver has been downloaded by tens of millions of users worldwide. PowerArchiver offers hundreds of features, yet remains easy to use, small and fast. Novice users will find a familiar interface complete with tutorial and detailed help, while more experienced users can take advantage of full Explorer integration, multiple encryption methods and advanced compression algorithms.
Here are some of the key features found in PowerArchiver, including:
Full Windows Vista Support - PowerArchiver includes full support for Microsoft newest operating system, Windows Vista.
User Account Control and new Vista dialog windows such as New, Open and Save are supported. New, Modern User Interface - A completely revamped user interface in PowerArchiver makes it easier to access the wealth of features that PowerArchiver has. This task-based interface utilizes the same "Ribbon" design found in Microsoft Office 2007, and ensures us qick access to the most used features while not hidding others under layers of menus. For those that desire the older look, PowerArchiver Classic interface is still available.
Superior ZIP Support - PowerArchiver offers superior ZIP format support compared to other archivers. Here are the highlights: Support for unlimited file size and unlimited number of files in ZIP archives. Support for advanced Deflate64 method providing higher compression ratios. ZIP AES support (both PkZip 5.1 and WZ 9.0 standards supported). Fast and strong compression and decompression. Multiple disk spanning, with support for unlimited span sizes. 7-Zip Compression - 7-Zip is an advanced compression format featured in PowerArchiver. It is an open source format, providing an open architecture and high compression ratio. 7-Zip outperforms ZIP, ACE and even RAR in many tests. However, 7-Zip greatest strength is that it is not controlled by any organization or individual, but by an open source LGPL project to which anyone can contribute. PowerArchiver introduces a new Transparent Update feature for 7-Zip archives, which allows us to quickly add or remove files even if the archive is "Solid".
Multiple Formats Support Including ISO - PowerArchiver has native support for most popular compressed and encoded formats currently in use. All formats are fully integrated into PowerArchiver, so we can utilize all PowerArchiver tools with each of them. Read and write support for ZIP, 7-ZIP, CAB, LHA (LZH), TAR, GZIP, BZIP2, BH, XXE, UUE, yENC, and MIME (Base 64). Read and extract support for: RAR, ARJ, ARC, ACE, ZOO plus ISO, BIN, IMG and NRG disc image formats. Brand new Plug-in System enables new formats and file types to be supported with a small download.
New Queue System (Add/Extract/Backup) and PowerArchiver Starter - An innovative Queue System has been added to PowerArchiver. This is the first time such an option is available in compression utility, and it enables us to better organize your compression, extraction and backups, as well as schedule multiple jobs to be done sequentially without slowing down our system - as multiple compressions would do if run all at once. Another first for PowerArchiver. PowerArchiver Starter is a brand new system tray application for managing our Queue and launching the most recently used archives and backups. PowerArchiver Starter has been written in an assembler-like language for minimum size and memory usage.
Unmatched Security - PowerArchiver comes with an unprecedented level of security features. Not only does it fully support the new ZIP AES standard, PowerArchiver also offers its proprietary PAE standard for additional security with five different encryption methods. For ease of use, the PowerArchiver Password Manager will save our frequently used passwords so we do not need to remember them. Full support for ZIP AES encryption, 128-bit/192-bit/256-bit (supports: PKZip 5.1 (full), Secure Zip 8.0 and WinZip 9.0 AE-1 & AE-2).
PAE support - Encryption of files and archives using 5 different methods: Blowfish (128-bit), DES (64-bit), Triple DES (128-bit), AES 128-bit, and AES 256-bit. Automated Backups - Security vulnerabilities have become a major problem in Windows, which means it is critical to backup and protect our important data. With PowerArchiver built-in Backup Wizard, it is a breeze to backup your files. By using a step-by-step wizard, we will be able to add files and folders, filter them based on our specifications, use 5 different compressions formats, add password protection, and even upload your backup to an FTP or SFTP (SSH) server directly! To keep our backups secure from prying eyes, we can also encrypt the archives using ZIP AES encryption.
Guaranteed Compatibility and Explorer Integration - PowerArchiver has pioneered advanced Shell Extensions that let us compress, extract and encrypt files using one click from within Windows Explorer -- without opening PowerArchiver. Not only that, but PowerArchiver also offers an option to use an Explorer-like interface for browsing our hard drive for archives, which also supports shell integration. PowerArchiver adds new Hybrid Shell Extensions, which puts less frequently used options in an easy to access submenu.
Compression Profiles - For ease of use, PowerArchiver has Compression Profiles that store frequently used compression settings. We can select a compression profile when performing operations in PowerArchiver and save considerable time.
Useful Tools - PowerArchiver has the most advanced set of tools that we can use to manage our archives: Convert Tool - convert files among formats supported in PowerArchiver. It can convert thousands of files and folders at the same time. Encode Tool - encode/decode files in UU, XX, MIME and yENC formats. Repair Tool - repair broken ZIP archives with one simple operation. Write/Merge Multivolume Tools - split ZIP files into multivolumes, and also merge multivolumes into a single ZIP archive. Batch ZIP Tool - batch compress thousands of files into separate archives.
