Hamster Free ZIP Archiver is a program that enables users to compress their files into ZIP, 7ZIP, GZIP, BZIP2, and TAR archive formats. An archive file can contain a single file or a collection of files compressed together to form a portable and smaller file size. Hamster Free ZIP Archiver can also be used to decompress other archive file formats such as Z, XAR, WIM, UDF, RPM, RAR, NSIS, MSI, LZMA, LZH, ISO, HFS, DMG, DEB, CPIO, CHM, CAB, and ARJ.
Hamster Free ZIP Archiver has a user-friendly interface that allows a user to simply drag and drop file items that need to be compressed. Users may compress various file types such as documents, software, photos, audio, or video. The program has options that allow users to change the output quality of the archive file. Users may choose between three settings: Minimum, Optimal, and Maximum. Minimum setting can compress files much faster but produces a high file size. Maximum produces the lowest file size between the other two settings but takes a longer time to compress files. The Optimum setting is a compromise between the other two settings and produces moderate compression time and file size. The program also allows users to break up large files into separate archive files. In addition, users can set a username and password to their output archive files in order to prevent unauthorized access to the files.
