When it comes to archiving your files and folders, we all know about zipping them up to make the file sizes go down. Most of the stuff you download from the Web is also archived in one way or another. What good are these technologies though if you have no way of using them? IZarc is a freeware program that delivers you one of the best experiences you can get as far as archiving utility programs go.

Here is what the developers of IZArc had to say about it.

IZArc is a full featured archiving tool that you can use to open and create compressed files in many different formats. It offers many advanced features, including repairing of broken archives, searching within archives, password protecting, emailing of archives and much more. The program provides an Explorer style interface with integrated file browser, favorites, customizable toolbar and color coded file listings. IZArc can also be used to create self-extracting or disk-spanning archives and more.

IZArc support most popular archive formats, including 7-ZIP, ACE, ARC, ARJ, BH, BZ2, CAB, DEB, GZ, HA, JAR, LHA, LZH, PAK, PK3, RAR, RPM, TAR,TGZ, TZ, ZIP and ZOO. You also get Windows explorer integration, favorites, customizable toolbars, and it can create a self-extracting file as well.

Sure it tries to give you everything and the kitchen sink, but the question is – does it deliver? When the price tag says free and you get all of this and more, it is really hard to argue that point. It is well worth checking out if you do not already have a favorite zipping program of your own.
