IZArc 4.4

Create and extract archive files on your Windows PC

IZArc is a Windows utility that helps you create, edit, convert, and extract archive files with minimum effort. The application is very intuitive, works with multiple archive formats, and provides you with the results you need within moments, without slowing down your PC.

Besides helping you create and extract archives, this program is also capable of encrypting, editing, and converting compressed files. Not many archive managers provide you with these 3 capabilities, especially not for free.

Furthermore, you can use this utility to mount disk image files, such as ISO, BIN, NRG or CDI. You can also convert them if needed.

In my testing, IZArc finished every given task without displaying any errors or slowing down my computer. Also, the output settings were very simple to configure, so even a beginner user can easily handle it.

My only problem with this application is the fact that, even though it supports many formats when extracting compressed files, IZArc doesn't let you create many types of archives.

Still, this program is one of the best free archive managers I tested on my Windows PC. So, it's definitely worth installing it on your computer if the aforementioned disadvantage doesn't mean much to you. It's easy-to-use, works 100%, and immediately completes any given task.
