Ashampoo ZIP Free is a simplified and free version of the application designed to compress and decompress files on Windows, supporting more than 30 of the most popular archive formats (ZIP, 7-ZIP, CAB, TAR, RAR, ZIPX, ARJ, ARC, ACE, MSI, DMG and many others).
In addition to the main functions of archives (creating and extracting content), the program is equipped with tools that allow you to create self-extracting SFX archives (.exe), restore damaged ZIP files, and also use multi-volume recording (breaking archives into smaller parts). Ashampoo ZIP Free integrates with the system shell, and the graphical interface used belongs to the modern user interface and can conveniently work on touch devices. It is multiplatform that makes this program one of the most popular among archivers, because the ease of use and intuitive interface are suitable for most users of any age category.
For more demanding users, the manufacturer provides a commercial version of Ashampoo ZIP Pro. In addition to the functions of free editing, this program also offers the ability to encrypt data, create virtual disks, convert archives, etc. Advanced functionality combined with open source allows professional users to fully use the functions and capabilities provided by this tool.
It is also worth paying attention to full integration with Windows Explorer and support for key services that allow you to store data in the cloud. We are talking about services such as Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive, Amazon S2, Azure and many others. It is important to note that in this case Ashampoo ZIP does not require the installation of additional programs, because it has pre-installed plugins and extensions for interacting with cloud storage services.
According to the developers, soon full integration is planned for all known platforms, whether mobile or stationary versions. Support for touch screens is a priority and a direction for further development of the program. An active dialogue is ongoing with the consumer to improve the quality of the product, which, no doubt, shows customer focus and user friendliness.
