Compressing files is a very common task today. However, it is not always so easy, especially when you work with large file sizes. If you do not have the right tools to divide files into smaller pieces, or combine them back, this situation may cause you a headache.

The good news is that thanks to ALZip this task can be performed in an easy way. No matter if you've been using another tool of compression, ALZip supports 40 different types of extensions, which makes it compatible with any type of compression. But this is not all. If what you're looking for is a more efficient way to compress your files, ALZip introduces an interesting compression method called "EGG".

Some advantages of the EGG format are as follows. Your compressed files will maintain the characters information no matter what operating system or language they are going to be opened in. That is, the compression process is compatible with unicode.

A solid compression will let you connect multiple files as if they were one, resulting in a large reduction in size of the archive. For security purposes, your compressed archives can be encrypted by a password using a highly secure algorithm of 256-bit.

When the program has finished compressing a file, a result window will allow you to send the file via email, copy it to the clipboard, or check any error in the compression process. The application also enables you to program your favorite antivirus in order to check compressed files for viruses. In addition, from its main window, you will be able to take a look at the compressed files without decompressing them.

However, unlike the previous versions, ALZip is no longer freeware. Still, it contains advanced features that can be evaluated for 60 days for free before you decide on buying it.
