For the last few days, I've been intending to look into other zip applications.  Windows internal handling is lame, I've not been as pleased with 7zip lately as I used to be, winzip has become posessed by the devil (Refuse to honor my life time registration code I bought years back, when no one bought them, and they promised lifetime free updates...) and WinRar. . . I just never really liked it. (I think it's the icons).

So far, I'm very pleased with Securezip -- the price is absolutely right, and it's fast and effective.  Also: I like the icons.

FYI for allen and others: You can download themes for WinRAR. WinRAR has even registered the MIME type, so when you download them, WinRAR will automatically install them. There is quite a variety of icons available.

Is there a theme to make it look like secure zip? :P

--I didn't know it was themable, thanks for that.  If I ever decide it's worth paying for, the icons will no longer turn me off to it.

Thanks for the heads up! Finally I have an archive manager which is not bloated, done professionally, and has decent icons and standard Windows appearance, which seems to be quite rare otherwise. Also, the Explorer view style is sometimes useful. I'm just missing 7-zip format support, some people are using it. (Frankly, I'm using ZTree for managing all archive types, but sometimes the drag & drop and other GUI features can help.)

Ztree supports archives? I purchased Ztree just because I loved it conceptually -- but I have yet to learn how to use it. At all. I start it up some times just to see it. Then tip toe away :)

To allen:

From the first page of ZTree site:
Quote
Flexible support of external archiving utilities to allow the management of ARJ, CAB, LHA, JAR, RAR and ZIP archives, to name a few

You can even add your special or future archivers (see ARCHIVER.BB2 in your ZTree folder), but you don't have to, there are plenty configured by default, provided you have the external programs (PKZIP for example) somewhere on your path. (Press Alt-F5 on an archive to view/decompress, or Ctrl-F5 on tagged files to create a new archive.)

ZTree requires, but fully deserves, some time to learn. This investment will pay off!
