PKZip had always been the favorite file
archiving software around. WinZip made things easier with
its easy-to-use GUI interface. However, every time you
want to use a file in an archive, you have to start
WinZip and manually make certain changes. With ZipMagic,
zip management hassles are now things of past. You will
be able to zip and unzip files without actually having to
use a Zip program, because zip files appear as normal
Windows folders. In Windows Explorer or in DOS, the file
archives (Zip or anything else) are displayed as regular
folders. You can save your files from applications like
MS Word directly into the archive using the Save As
dialog box. And all this is done transparently to the
user.

ZipMagic adds a button Zip
on the title bar of various windows, which enables you to
control this utility. You can change various properties
of ZipMagic, enable or disable it, associate it with
various types of archives, set the degree of compression
using a slider (you are now no more restricted to the
five options on WinZip), define hotkeys that control this
utility, define the drives to which this utility is to be
associated with, and even schedule times of operation in
the day. ZipMagic supports the universal ZIP format, as
well as other compressed files like ARJ, TAR, TAZ, CAB,
and ZOO. It is also possible to open and decode e-mail
attachments like BinHex, UUEncode, XXEncode, and MIME.

ZipMagic includes an
Archive Manager, which gives you all the options you may
need when it comes to unzipping and zipping files. Place
large zip files onto multiple disks, create
self-extracting zip executables, and password protected
files. It has an interface similar to that of the Windows
Explorer, and also allows you to perform all the
functions of the Windows Explorer too.
