PA has a very active and responsive tech support forum; some of the things you might find of benefit over free archivers:
- an Outlook plug-in. When you attach files to an outgoing email, they can be automatically zipped up into an archive if the attachments exceed a configured size threshold.
- a backup system
- FTP/SFTP support
- CD/DVD burner and ISO image virtual drive support
