ZIP Reader

Peek inside SecureZIP or PKZip files with this free Windows utility.

ZR-01Some times, even though your archives are named appropriately, you forget what you’ve stored in them. I know that’s happened to me more than once, especially with archives that have a bit of age on them. This is one of the reasons why I like Zip Reader. It’s a nifty archive utility for Windows, and its something everyone should have.

ZIP Reader is a free Windows utility that allows users to open files that have been compressed using a archiving utility like SecureZIP or PKZIP. ZIP Reader decrypts Secure ZIP files created by any PKWARE product, regardless of hardware platform. That means Windows users can access files encrypted and compressed on any supported platform. It doesn’t matter where you made it. If its in ZIP format, Zip Reader can peek inside and see what’s there.

The application is simple to use and has a cool auto launch feature. All you have to do is double click on any ZIP file or simply drag-and-drop the ZIP file on to the ZIP Reader icon. The file will unzip automatically, showing its contents.

Zip Reader is a must have application. The app is easy to use and it makes sense to have a tool that can read and decompress archives zipped on other machines with other operating systems. The face of computing is changing. Having a cross platform tool of this type is going to be important during this transitional time. If you don’t have Zip Reader, you should give it a serious look.

Compress and secure your data with PKZip

566705Putting it in the cloud is all the rage today.  Hundreds of thousands of people are storing data remotely so that they can access their data However, not everyone has a lot of or wants to pay for cloud storage. This is one of the reasons why I like apps like PKZip. It’s a file compression tool for Windows.

PKZip is a file compression tool that can compress files by up to 98%, saving valuable storage space and making file transfer easier.  You can compress and encrypt files directly from Microsoft Office using SecureZIP. Its really very easy. When using Microsoft Office, simply select “Save Copy as ZIP File” or “Save Copy as Secure ZIP File” to compress or encrypt directly from Word, Excel, or PowerPoint.

Protecting your data is easy with PKZip.  It has support of AES or 3DES strong encryption. Files encrypted with PKZIP may be decrypted and extracted on all major computing platforms, including Windows, Mac OS, Unix and Linux.  You can rest assured that important data can be sent to and used by those that need it, regardless of where they are and what computing platform they use.

Getting your information where you need it is easy with PKZip, too.  PKZip also integrates with Microsoft Outlook, allowing automatic encryption of any email and/or attachment. Encrypted emails can be forwarded without the need to download and resave files. PKZIP can compress files that are over 9 exabytes in size (1EB = 1,000,000 terabytes); and allows users to combine up to two billion files into a single archive.

PKZip is pretty decent software, and its comparably priced to other, popular file compression tools. While its compression ratios are good, its been my experience that other tools may be able to provide better compression algorithms and rates, but your mileage may vary. If you’re looking for a decent file compression, archiving and compression tool, PKZip is a great choice and one that you should give serious consideration to.
