Bandizip Review

Tina de Pierre
Compression and decompression software utility with file archive support for ZIP, RAR, CAB and 7ZIP files
A review of Bandizip by Tina de Pierre

Produced by the developers of the popular program, BandiZip is a freeware file compression utility which supports many of the most popular compression formats such as WinZIP, WinRAR, WinACE, 7-Zip among other types of compression archives including those found in setup installation packages like CAB files.

BandiZip also specializes in the compression of multimedia file formats which in some cases, may take up more space as a compression archive than they would as plain files -- their algorithm allows you to choose which compression format to use in order to save space. BandiZip also features some exclusive technology used to improve the speed of creating archives and decompressing them.

Overall, BandiZip functions as expected and the layout of the program is pretty standard among software in this category. What isn't standard, though, is a company producing this type of program as a freeware application and for that they receive our applause. Worth noting is BandiZip's Unicode support.

Bandizip is software which can create 7Z archives.

Bandizip features and highlights:
  • Support for Unicode to display international characters
  • Bypass files that don't compress well using the "High Speed Archiving" function
  • Extract files to the destination folder directly using the "Fast Drag & Drop" function
  • Create self-extracting files (.EXE) and multi-volume (split) archives
  • Optional archive encryption using ZipCrypto and AES 256
  • Context Menu access including the "Preview Archive" function
  • Create or extract multiple zip files simultaneously from windows explorer
  • Free to use at both home and in the office

Bandizip is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from file archivers without restrictions. Bandizip 6.15.25758 is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).
