Bandizip: A very simple and efficient compression and decompression tool

If you need a good compression and decompression tool that sports a long list of supported formats, like archive files (e.g. ZIP, RAR, CAB, 7Z, LZH), UNIX file types (e.g. TAR, GZ, TGS, LZMA), CD/DVD formats (e.g. ISO, IMG) or others (JAR, WAV, XPI), then Bandizip is the right tool for the job.

The interface differs from other similar apps being more simplistic, which will allow all types of users, experienced or not to quickly get accustomed to it.

You can use the "drag and drop" function to open an existing archive but unfortunately, Bandizip doesn't come with a built-in explorer layout in the main window to make it easier to browse files.

You will be able to specify the output location when selecting the files that will be included in the archive, also, file name, type, splitting method, compression level, and even a password.

The tool is also great for more advanced users because it allows a bunch of configurable settings when it comes to compression, (e.g. use the Unicode filename in ZIP files, save NTFS time information when compressing), file associations, context menu integration, extraction, etc.

Bandizip also has a feature that will allow you to test the integrity of archives, renaming files within the archive, edit archive comments, use the file search option within an archive, modify the columns in the main window, and even change the interface's language.

All in all, Bandizip is a very good compression and decompression tool, and it does a swift job while using a decent amount of system resources, depending on the performance of your computer. Offers a simplistic Interface that will allow less experienced users to use it without any problems but also features some more advanced ones for the more experienced one.
