Attractive, easy-to-use file compressing tool

Hamster Free ZIP Archiver is a nicely designed file compressing tool that lets you create compressed archives in just a few easy steps.

Unlike other compressors such as WinZip or WinRAR, Hamster Free ZIP Archiver features a very stylish interface that makes use of transparency and blurring effects, thus making you focus attention on certain areas.

Hamster Free ZIP Archiver is also very easy to use, with support for dragging and dropping files, and easy, colorful buttons for the program’s various options: compression level, archive splitting and password protection.

That said, the truth is that Hamster Free ZIP Archiver is a bit slow in comparison with other similar tools, and also quite limited as regards supported formats – it only works with ZIP and 7Z.

Hamster Free ZIP Archiver is an attractive – thought somewhat limited – file compressing tool that’s simple enough for everyone to use.
