Whether you are emailing files or simply trying to save space on your phone, archiving (often colloquially called ‘zipping’) is the best course of action. This post will help you how to install ZArchiver for PC on your Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 10 or Mac computers.
ZArchiver for PC
Archiving essentially involves compressing and combining multiple files into just one. This leads to a conservation of space on your device in addition to increased portability. And although archiving has long been the domain of computers and laptops, ZArchiver lets you archive (and more!) from the comfort of your phone.
Besides allowing the user to create various archive types (such as ‘zip’), it also allows the user to decompress a plethora of archive types including the most common ‘rar’ and ‘zip’ formats.
Moreover, ZArchiver allows the user to not only view archived files but even edit the archives by inserting and removing files as required. It also allows for myriads of other functions related to archives files such as opening archive files straight from your mail app and handling multi-part archives.
Those concerned with security need not worry either, because ZArchiver has options for password-protecting any archives that are created. Furthermore, we often face situations where only a few files are required from an archive.
Instead of the traditional method of decompressing the entire archive and then deleting the files we don’t need, ZArchiver makes our lives easier by allowing us to partially decompress archives.
