In the jungle of file compressors, there are ones which are paying and those which are free. Quick Zip is among the free ones and has nothing to be ashamed of its paying competitors; it can even do more than them. Like its similar programs, it zips and unzips files. It supports almost compressed file formats, even 7Z which is the most popular. It is used like Windows explorer. To compress or extract a file, a file or folder, you just drag and drop to simplify its use. The software can even repair files which are damaged when compressing with other software. It also has a tool bar which allows you to send compressed files to other sites like OpenWith or Rapidshare. In brief, the software is very well conceived and versatile apart from being free.
