Editorial review

WinZip is one of the most stable and effective archivers so far. It integrates with Dropbox, Google Drive, Sky Drive and the most popular social networking websites like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn and compresses, organizes, views and protects your files. If you are looking for a tool that makes sharing files easier, your search is over. 17.5 version has a number of enhancements that make the program run smoother.

Why using the software

As you probably know, the main feature of WinZip is compressing your files and making them more lightweight and easy to store and share. Alongside with that, it protects your files using the encryption option, allows you to choose compression ratios, and supports the most popular file formats like ZIP, BHX, LZH, B64, ARC, ARJ, GZ, BZ, HQX, LHA, UU, TGZ, RAR, TAR, MIM, TBZ, etc.

The main advantage of this program is its simplicity. Indeed, you can hardly find a similar program with such a straightforward interface. There's no need to mess with lots of options and waste time on learning the possibilities of the utility. However, this exact feature is also heavily criticized by some users. Seriously, WinZip was one of the first compression tools and keeps leading the market, but you can find much more powerful tools these days. However, if you are not looking for something super sophisticated, WinZip would never let you down. Some minor bugs were fixed in this version of the program so its performance is perfect.
