Bandizip Is Probably The Best Free File Archiver Right Now | Ghacks Technology News

bandizip I decided to look for an alternative that would tick all the boxes without sacrificing anything. Plus, the program had to be available freely as well as I had no intention of spending money for an archiver. I reviewed Bandizip in 2011 for the first time and liked it a lot back then. The developing company has improved the application over the years so that it is not supporting all the features that I require from a file archiver. What those are? Glad you asked. Format compatibility - The program needs to support all major archive formats including zip, 7z, rar (including rar5), gz, ace, tar and others in terms of extraction, and major formats when it comes to archive creation. Convenience - Options to extract one or multiple archives from Windows Explorer and to open extracted folders after extraction. Other features - Unicode support is a must, as are options to customize the context menu and other program features.
