A fully-featured application designed to help you extract and create new archives, as well as add, delete and rename files from the archived items, while offering support for different formats (e.g. ZIP, RAR, TAR, GZ, ISO, JAR, WAV)
Bandizip Portable is a professional compression tool that allows users to open, extract and create new archives, as well as add, delete and rename files from the archived documents.
Since this is the portable version of the program, it is important to mention that it doesn’t leave any traces in the Windows Registry. You can copy it on any USB flash drive or other devices, and take it with you whenever you want to perform compression or decompression operations on the fly.
The application offers support for a wide range of file formats, namely archive files (e.g. ZIP, RAR, CAB, 7Z, LZH, ACE), UNIX files types (e.g. TAR, GZ, TGS, LZMA), CD/DVD-related formats (e.g. ISO, IMG) or others (JAR, WAV, XPI).
Although it packs many functions, it features a user-friendly environment which gives you the possibility of performing different operations with minimum effort. You can either drag and drop the files directly into the primary panel, or use the built-in browse button.
The program allows users to extract the entire archive or only the selected files. Plus, you can make some changes in the archived files, as it is possible to add, rename or delete the selected items, as well as open them with a double-click. Adding a new comment to the archive or editing the current one is particularly simple, and you can also load a plain text file to the list.
Bandizip Portable helps you search for different keywords throughout the entire archive and perform tests to check for possible errors in the compressed files.
When it comes to creating a new archive, you are required to add the files and specify the saving directory and archive type. Additional settings enable users to pick the compression level and splitting method, apply encryption options, as well as delete the original files at the end of the task.
Other important features include the possibility to make file associations, configure the dedicated parameters for the extraction and compression methods, as well as customize the columns in the main application window.
All in all, Bandizip Portable packs a clean layout and many useful compression tools. It manages to extract and compress files very quickly and without errors throughout the entire processes.
