Hi folks! After testing this software I now have a registered version on my machine. Netzip just about delivers what it promises, its a no-nonsense, versatile, easy to use archiving tool with the ability to extract/zip, unzip in place or create self extracting files. The functions are simple and mainly self explanatory, it will handle most file formats and you can choose which you want to associate with it. I particularly liked the ability to view a file before unzipping it, and for all you Zara Lou's (why do people tell me I should have been born blonde?) out there who don't have a clue, the "Wizard" is invaluable.
I found the support desk very prompt, a received a reply to both my e-mail's within the hour. Included with the evaluation is "RealDownload" which is a simple downloading facility with pause/resume. There is a limited choice of "skins" available, and once the evaluation period has ended, Netzip continues to work, but Classic is disabled. The cost of this product is likely to be the deciding factor for most people, as there are so many free versions available out there. But if you are considering purchasing such software, then this is the one. Zara Lou.
