Fast compression"
A review by Flo

This is a free and open-source software  that works in compression and archiving of various file types. The biggest advantage of this above the other popular compression software like WinZip and WinRAR include quick speed and simplicity for usage with very few clicks to execute extraction and archiving actions.


The program is able to generate passwords and protect the archives.

It is a very quick process and then you have tools for archiving, compressing, encrypting, file commenting and a number of other tools available at your fingertips. It does use up a lot of RAM and CPU while working as it seeks to maximize the speed of its work of compression.

There is no need to fear about compatibility issues as it works properly with other compression formats from other archivers such, however it compresses to its own format .arc format (which is also compatible with other archival and compression tools) or to SFX format.

Multiple platforms

It is open source and available not only for Windows, but also for Linux adn other platforms.

Among other compression tools it has the most compression algorithms numbering about 10.  These algorithms allow for removal of recurrences from all sorts of files including texts, audio and video. The algorithms also help in file sorting. This program is very useful and very quick in executing its tasks.

FreeArc is licensed as freeware for PC or laptop with Windows 32 bit and 64 bit operating system. It is in compression category and is available to all software users as a free download.
