This is a nice concept, but it is too hard to use.
First, it didn't associate itself with any
file types. Second, it crashed when I tried to
create a 7z archive. Third, the Windows Explorer-
style interface seems like a good idea, but it
requires too much work to get to where you need to
go. The minimalist interface is attractive, but it
gave me no clue as to what settings were available
or how to access them. In particular, I wanted to
specify a default file access path and the 7z
This handles virtually every compression format you'll need. And unlike some archivers, it understands password-protected archives (including RAR), and even lets you manage a list of often-used passwords. A great app!
Excellent tools included, this program is the best that I've come across for free unzipping. I believe the current program now supports 50 extensions, and with the zip repair tool, you don't have to worry about corrupt zip files anymore! The shell extension works (regardless of the window that comes and goes.). Aside from that, it's the little things that count. Like being able to make your own self-extracting .exe. Or how about running the install after extraction. You can even install directly from the zip file with the handy little button at the top.
It's definitely come a long way since it first started, and I would recommend it to anyone who even thinks of trying to use ... or ... Who needs shareware, when you have freeware?
The developer has some great ideas, like incorporating the use of your resident antiviral program (which requires knowledge of scripting parameters and therefore negates the feature...besides, it still has a bug!). The Explorer shell feature is a must for me, but again, I could not get it to work; and, I'm not a newbie, and not uncomfortable editing registry keys. I like QuickZip's potential. The utility unzips OK, but Joseph needs to finish building this otherwise well-conceived program. If somebody figures out how to actually create an archive from Win Explorer, please let me know. I just can't see the need to labor at using any software today. In the meantime, I'll use ZipGenius, which is nice. Hey, isn't SnapFiles a great site!?
I dont think UI is ugly, though it is somehow flicky, and it could indeed be improved, but its stable enough for everyday use.
I like it cause its the only one i found who can create most of its supported formats from context menu. plus it has internal file view, its multi-language and of course its freeware.
The Gui is butt ugly plus you can right click on a zip file and choose to have Quickzip unzip it but it opens the programs Gui then closes it-bugs me!
