Choosing a new compression tool for your operating
system is pretty difficult, given the fact that everyone has a favorite
developer already.

But once in a blue moon, a new product
appears, and it holds something which is a bit different from what you
have already gotten yourself used to.

In the world of compression
tools, ZipGenius brings something new to the table, in comparison to
its competitors (e.g. WinRar, WinZip).

Its interface is extremely
user-friendly, and completely different from what we already know. The
menu looks as if the software is actually integrated into Windows, and
you have some clearly defined options.

You can create a new
archive, open one, extract files from an archive, or send one via
e-mail. If you are new to this environment, then this small software
will make everything much easier for you to understand.

The
actual compressing is done in a Command Prompter window. We love the
fact that ZipGenius didn't try to reinvent the wheel, but rather take
advantage of the simplicity of the situation.

When you choose to
extract an archive, you can select all files, only selected files, or
only files with a certain format. In Options you can set ZipGenius to
ask before overwriting on existing files, as well as open the
destination folder once the operation is a success.

Sending an
archive via e-mail is done by using the default mail client of your
computer (e.g. MS Outlook Express, Mozilla Thunderbird).

It is also possible to backup files, convert an archive into a multi-volume archive, add comments to an archive etc.

ZipGenius
is pretty fast, in comparison with other compression tools, but
sometimes it takes a little while to perform a task. Also, CPU and
memory usage is pretty high most of the times.

We certainly
recommend trying out ZipGenius. It will probably get better with time
and, who knows, maybe even dominate all the other compression tools.
