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.

Read and backup data from scratched CD/DVD/Blu-ray discs with AnyReader

Anyone with children has this problem – you’ve got CD/DVD’s running around the house without the protection of their jewel cases, and they’re scratched beyond belief. Disc Doctors and other physical repair tools are great for optical discs, but not for other faulty media like floppies, hard drives and flash drives.  This is the reason why I like AnyReader. It’s a must have data utility for Windows.

AnyReader copies files from scratched CD/DVD/Blu-ray or defective floppy or hard disks. When your computer is unable to copy files from a damaged disk it aborts and deletes the part of the file it has copied. AnyReader will continue copying the file right to the end. Any data that hasn’t been recovered after several retries is replaced with blanks. This will allow you to effectively read every byte of information that can be read at all for the media in question so that it can be copied to the destination of choice.

AnyReader effectively copies corrupt data from erroneous network and/or internet connections if standard copying methods fail. It supports resumed downloads from the remote server if the connection was broken during the copy process.  This is especially useful for unreliable or spotty Wi-Fi networks.

AnyReader is an awesome tool. If you’re trying to pull data off corrupt or damaged discs or media and nothing else you do seems to work, AnyReader is the type of application that can save your bacon. Its affordable and reasonably priced and is a welcomed edition to my stable of utilities.  The only real downside to the app is that it won’t work with Macs or Mac discs. This would be a stone-cold ringer if it was a multi-platform utility.

QManga a proper comic reader

While the title suggests a comic reader specialized on manga, the truth is that with Qmanga you can read any comics which may be in the JPG, ZIP, RAR, PNG, GIF, even CBZ and CBR format. With a single toolbar on top of the main window providing the basic tools for scrolling through pages, rotating the image and getting into fullscreen mode, Qmanga provides the perfect medium for viewing comics. But it still lacks of some important features that are common for most of the e-book readers. It has no Page Thumbnails list that gives you the ability to jump to any desired page from a single glimpse. It features no pagination, or zoom option.

Quick’n’easy PDF reading using Cool PDF Reader 3

We all know that when it comes to PDF files, the Adobe products come immediately to our mind. Well, this is true but it’s also true that Adobe products are quite large in size and use serious computer resources while running. As opposed to that, I found Cool PDF Reader.
