PowerZip is an award-winning compression program for Windows. PowerZip lets you zip and unzip files directly from My Computer or Windows Explorer. It also enables you to password-protect confidential files with AES encryption; unzip 12 types of archives; create ZIP, CAB, TAR, GZ, BZ2, and ARJ archives; and create self-extracting archives. PowerZip supports two new compression methods (Deflate64 and BWT) to provide a higher level of compression than is normally available in ZIP files. Standard zip compression also is supported for compatibility with other zip programs. If you routinely perform compression tasks (such as daily backups), you can automate them by recording PowerZip macro files, which allows you to repeat the recorded compression (or extraction) task with a simple double-click; you also can run Macro Files as part of an automated script. PowerZip fully supports 64-bit editions Windows (Windows XP x64).

*** Easy to use Wizards
PowerZip makes creating and unzipping Zip files (and other types of archives) surprisingly easy. PowerZip's intuitive Compression & Extraction Wizards will guide you through every step required to Zip & Unzip files. And since PowerZip is integrated with Windows, you can Zip and Unzip files directly from My Computer's right-click menu. Of course, if you ever get stuck, PowerZip's extensive context-sensitive help is sure to answer your questions. Or you can just contact our technical support and we will be happy to assist you.
*** Compatibility with other programs
PowerZip is fully compatible with the Zip specification §. This means that you can use PowerZip to unzip Zip files created by other programs and other programs can unzip Zip files created by PowerZip. This also applies to other compression formats supported by PowerZip such as Cab, Arj or Tar/Gz.
*** Support for 12 types of archives
While Zip might be the most popular type of archive / compressed file, many other archive formats exist. PowerZip supports 12 types of archives. PowerZip can create & unzip Zip, Cab, Tar, Gz, Bz2, Arj and Ha archives. In addition, PowerZip can also unzip Rar, Ace, Jar, Z and LZH archives.
*** Integration with Windows
PowerZip is tightly integrated with Windows allowing you to Zip & Unzip files directly from Windows without having to open the main program. You can right-click on or more files or folders in Windows Explorer / My Computer and select Zip to compress the files. You can also select Zip & E-mail to zip the files and create a new e-mail message with the Zip attached all in one click. Similarly, you can also right-click on one or more Zip files or other archives and choose Unzip to extract the files.
*** Interoperability with Unix
PowerZip can create & unzip archives types common under Unix (Tar, Gzip, Bzip2), making sharing files with Unix / Linux systems quick and easy. PowerZip lets you create a .tar.gz or .tar.bz2 file in one go - perfect for when you need to transfer multiple files to a Unix machine.
*** Multi-disk / multi-part archive support
PowerZip can create Zip files that span over several floppy disks. PowerZip can also create multi-part (split) Zip and Cab files, i.e. archives that are broken down into several files (e.g. myfile_1.cab, myfile_2.cab etc) instead of being a single large file. Split files are handy if you need to overcome attachment size limitations when sending large files via e-mail or if you wish to create an archive that is split over several CDs (when zipping very large files).
*** Comprehensive online documentation
PowerZip comes with extensive documentation - PowerZip User Guide - which covers all aspects of using PowerZip. However, nobody likes having to read documentation so PowerZip is designed to make the interface completely intuitive and keep the need to refer to the User Guide to an absolute minimum. The screens and dialogs are laid out and structured in such a way as to make them self-explanatory and where required, explanations of non-trivial options are built directly into the applicable screen. In addition, PowerZip's Wizards have pop-up tooltips which explain the purpose of each button or control.
- Support for 64-bit Windows (Windows XP x64) - PowerZip now provides shell extensions / integration with Windows Explorer (Zip / Unzip items in the Windows Explorer right-click menu) under the 64-bit version of Windows XP
