Best archiver I've used 4 stars by LowStrung May 15, 2015 (Read all my 10 reviews)
I abandoned 7-Zip a long time ago in favor of Bandizip, which is fast and reliable, more user-friendly than 7-Zip, and can handle a wide range of archive formats. There is also a portable version, which is what I'm currently using (Bandizip 5.05). The image previewer found in the installed version is not available in the portable version, but you can still open archived images by association, either via the enter key or by double-clicking them. One thing I'd like to see that is standard in Windows Explorer compressed folders is the ability to copy and paste files to and from an archive. That option is neither on the context menu nor accessible with Ctrl C Ctrl V. You can, however, drag and drop files to and from the Bandizip window. show Review details
Excellent zipper and unzipper 5 stars by Harlan May 15, 2015 (Read all my 52 reviews)
Small, light on resources, very fast, flexible, comprehensive format support, good user interface, reliable. This is an excellent package. I've uninstalled PeaZip and 7-zip, although they are each good programs (7-zip, regrettably, has become a poster-boy for idiosyncratic and inward-focused development). Note: I have had to change some of the settings to get what I wanted (no new root folders, please, and maximum compression where possible). I've updated my review because the developer addressed ALL of my suggestions from my 2013 review. I also use their Honeyview, a light (in weight and, to be fair, in features) image viewer with a more generous license than IrfanView and XnView. show Review details
