PowerArchiver is a program for compression and decompression of data, with advanced features.
There are plenty of programs for compressing and decompressing data, as there are many compression formats: zip, rar, 7z, arj, etc. If we make constant use of compressed files, either because we create them or because decompress them, it is convenient to have a powerful and versatile tool. PowerArchiver has the necessary features to handle compressed files.
With this software we can handle virtually all types of compressed files, since it supports: zip, 7-zip, rar, tar, gzip, iso, arj, dmg and more extensions. In addition to support for multiple compressed files, this software stands out for improving the speed of compression/decompression of files. For example it is 10% faster than WinRAR when it comes to extract RAR files, and it might be four times faster than WinZIP. This is thanks to the use that the program makes of the multiple cores in processors.
Another prominent part of PowerArchiver is the possibility to encrypt and decrypt the files compressed with highly reliable security algorithms such as: AES 128/192/256bits, Blowfish (128-bits), DES (64-bit) and Triple DES (128-bits).
We can create a queue of tasks to make one after another, without having to wait the finish of current task and avoiding overlap with other tasks, thus, making better use of the resources of the system.
Thanks to preview files, we won't have to unzip the file to view the contents of a text document or see the video included in the compressed file.
This is paid software and we can download demo version to try it.
