If you ever used the Internet, you've probably encountered archive files like Zip, Rar, Arj etc.IZArc provides you one of the best way to handle these archived files. It's both powerful and very fast.IZArc includes tight integration with My Computer and Windows Explorer.You can drag and drop to or from Explorer, or zip and unzip without leaving Explorer.You can right click any file or folder and convert it to a Zip file of your choice.
IZArc is capable of handling almost all Zip file types namely-7-ZIP, A, ACE, ARC, ARJ, B64, BH, BZ2, BZA, CAB, CPIO, DEB, ENC, GCA, GZ, GZA, HA, JAR, LHA, LIB, LZH, MBF, MIM, PAK, PK3, RAR, RPM, TAR, TAZ, TBZ, TGZ, TZ, UUE, WAR, XXE, YZ1, Z, ZIP, ZOO and lot more.
You can create zip files of formats like zip, 7z, bza, tar.bz2, cab, jar, lha, tar, tar.g2 and yz1. Out of these I like 7Z as it offers maximum compression ratio but compression ratio may change with type of file compressed. IZArc also features secure encryption in form of .ize files. By using the encryption tool, you can secure any data on your computer with 256 bit encryption.You can run IZArc from command line if you wish.You can download command line version here.
