Many times we need to send large files over email to our friends or to relatives but if file size is large we have to compress them and make archive of them so that they can be sent through mail. earlier we had shared few archive tools like AlZip, and jZip. Today we have another archiving tool, the MagicAchiver it’s a free tool for both personal and commercial use which allows you to create and modify your archives and extract files from them too.
In our test we find this tool very handy and easy to use, if you regularly deal with large number of files and want to save space on your disk then this tool may help you. You can make archive in Zip or 7zip formats, creating archive is very easy, all you need to do is right click on file(s) and select MagicArchiver option. In our test we had found that compression ration is much better than some of the other tools.
If you want to transfer a very large files through mail or something like then MagicArchiver allows you to Split Archives, to make split archives just move to advance tab when you were creating archives and then you will be able to split your archive files into separate archives which can be sent easily.
One feature which we like is that it do allow you to make your archive password protect so that only authorized user will be able to access it. To make your archive file password protected all you need to do is under Advance tab check Password Protection option and then it will ask for password, just provide password and you are done.
