ZipItFree Review

Fernando Ortega
Free alternative to WinZip
A review of ZipItFree by Fernando Ortega

ZipItFree is a WinZip alternative built from the ground-up to be better, faster and easier to use than its commercial competitor. This worthy rival takes advantage of Black Hole Super 5X compression to compress your file to the further extent.

Without having the shell out $30 for a program like WinZip or WinRAR, ZipItFree is completely free and requires no registration.

One advantage of using this file archiver is their ability to obtain very high compression rates and its speed at decompressing files. ZipItFree can even sometimes beat out commercial rivals WinZip and WinRar by decompressing files and folders faster and using less memory and CPU power.

One other benefit of using ZipItFree as opposed to many alternatives is the possibility to encrypt your archives using the ZipV2 algorithm. This type of encryption is less prone to several forms of attacks by password recovery software.

While keeping in mind that this compression/decompression utility is competing against giant companies who have been around a lot longer, we believe that ZipItFree is a very worthy rival to other archivers on the market.

ZipItFree is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from file archivers without restrictions. ZipItFree 2.30 is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).
