Hamster Free Zip Archiver is a file compressing tool that allows the user to create compressed archives easy and fast. Data compression is of utmost importance, especially for corporate clients, as companies need to store a lot of digital information. This is the main reason why file compressing tools have become so popular on a global scale. Nowadays, anyone who uses a computer on a daily basis is also likely to have such a program already installed.
The most important benefit of Hamster Free Zip Archiver is its ease of use. Compressing a file is as simple as dragging it into the program’s window and clicking on a button. To open the archived file, the user has to click on it and press the ‘Open’ button. Even though the software is limited to creating archives only in the 7Z and Zip formats, it is able to handle file un-archiving in the popular RAR format. Although the software is regarded as being almost basic, it allows for customization upon the user’s wishes. For instance, it allows the user to choose between a faster speed and a smaller size of the archive which is to be created. Moreover, the user has three levels of compression to choose from. The first level, ‘Minimum’, compresses a file the least, but does so in a couple of seconds. The second, ‘Optimal’, balances the speed of compression with the desired small size of the file. ‘Maximum’ delivers the smallest possible archive files, but the software takes longer to deliver this result.
Another aspect that comes to mind in regard to the program is the fact that during the installation process, the software will make Bing the default search engine. It also makes Bing the homepage and it installs the Bing toolbar in the default browser. However, these settings can be omitted by simply customizing the installation process. In addition to that, Hamster Free Zip Archiver allows the user to split larger archives into several small pieces. Password protection for archived files is yet another feature of this quite useful program. Due to the fact that this freeware is very small, it lacks e-mail integration. Nevertheless, considering its capabilities under the given circumstances, this is hardly a drawback.
The main competitors of this software are WinZip and WinRAR. However, when compared to Hamster Free Zip Archiver, both of these programs lack user-friendly features, such as blurring effects and transparency. These characteristics draw the user’s attention on particular areas, thus ensuring that the whole archiving process is hassle-free. On the other hand, Hamster Free Zip Archiver is a bit slower than its competitors.
To sum it all up, Hamster Free Zip Archiver is a small, but very powerful file compression tool that addresses both commercial and private users. The software is very easy to use and has unique user-oriented features that its main competitors lack. The program is absolutely free of charge.
The software was developed by Hamster Soft. The company was founded in 2010 and specializes in both development and distribution of software products. It should be noted that, unlike other software developers, Hamster Soft encourages end-users, website owners and online magazines to freely distribute its products.
