jZip is a file compression and decompression application. With the program, users can make compressed folders and extract from Zip, 7-Zip, TAR, RAR, and ISO folders. The application uses a fast compression engine that can get the job done in a few seconds. Furthermore, the software allows users to set the space to be saved when compressing files. Users can also provide a password when zipping files in order to prevent unauthorized users from accessing the contents of the folder.
Users can see previews of the contents of a compressed file. In addition, a summary of the archive properties can also be viewed. Information that can be seen include the path of the file, the name, file size, the number of files, the compression rate, and the date and time when the file was created.
The program’s main window is simple and intuitive. There are six icons located at the top of the main window. They are New Archive, Open Archive, Add, Extract, View, and Style. Users can extract or add files by clicking on File at the top left part of the window. Other tasks that can be done with the jZip program can be found under Actions. The program also comes with a Help file that users can view to learn how to use the different functions of the application.
