A complete archive utility

IZArc is a utility that will decompress tons formats like ZIP and RAR, so whenever you receive a compressed file, you'll be able to handle it,

Compressed archives are a handy way to share data online: they can contain multiple files and folders, and usually take less space. There are many compression formats and algorithms, but with IZArc you can easily handle them all.

This powerful compressing utility supports dozens of formats, including ACE, 7-ZIP, ISO, LZH, RAR, TAR and of course, ZIP. The program can be seamlessly integrated with Windows Explorer, which means you can use it without having to open its interface.

Working with IZArc is really easy. You have access to the main functions in Windows Explorer context menu, and can also drag and drop files and folders on its interface. IZArc includes interesting features such as support for encryption, multi-volume sets, scanning for viruses, and the possibility to create an EXE file that will extract the compressed data by just double clicking on it.

The latest version of IZArc, 4.0 Beta 1, is not that different from the previous ones, at least in appearance. The program seems to have improved the way it works with multi-folder compressed files, meaning you won't lose any subfolder or file when expanding them.

IZArc is a powerful free compression utility with support for many formats and a bunch of interesting extra tools.
