I was having trouble opening a zip file the other day... I think it was compiled with Winzip9 and I only have 8, but a thread on another forum led me to this site ~ ~ the Alzip app opened the file that was giving me grief without any trouble, and like Winrar it allows a greater control over extracting individual files.

I haven't checked out the other programs on this site yet, but over the Xmas period I will certainly be doing so.

Cool site, worth checking out Congratulation Cool

ZipGenius handles 7Zip files too! And RAR files and JAR files and anything else you can think of. Plus it has a file cutter and an FTP transfer app all rolled into one FREE package. It was based on 7Zip and is more advanced. Congratulation Cool Wink

All I know is some one gave me a disk with a zip that had been compiled with Winzip9... I still have 8. When I tried to open the file my machine froze and when I rebooted it had to go through a critical error restart ( my thanks to the guys at Winzip...that the commercial element should mean so much to you [ I can rememeber a time when Winzip was free anyway] ).

Alzip can open 36 types of compressed files ( iso´s? and bin´s ) and create 8 ... good enough for me as a home user
