Compression Tools

Posted by Mike Tyson Thursday, April 8, 2010

These days, two things are fairly common for all of us. 1. We are running out of space, 2. We are going for shorter and smaller versions of anything. That is where file compression softwares come in to rescue us from both the plights. They squeeze our files to less space. It takes less space to keep them, lesser to upload and download. So on my quest to find out the best file compression software, I was thoroughly confused. Gone are the days when Winrar and Winzip used to monopolize. There are so many softwares now in the market, I was trying to figure out which one to choose which one to not. Again, another question that came to my mind is, what is the basis of determining better compression tool? So I zeroed on to some criteria and reviewed each software on the basis of those.

Lacking a stand-alone interface, FreeZip adds a collection of useful archive-management commands to Explorer's context menus. Right-clicking a file or archive then choosing one of the commands, such as Zip, UnZip here, ListZip, or TestZip, launches a command-line tool that does the specified action. It's not pretty, but effective, and of course, free, though occasionally we couldn't get the Zip command to appear for certain file types. Author Stanislawek offers optional encryption and stand-alone archive-creation features through patches available from the FreeZip Web site. Dial-up users rejoice: even with the patches, FreeZip is less than 500K.
