Free version of PowerArchiver 2010 released

PowerArchiver 2010 Free is the latest version of the powerful file compression utility that comes free of cost for personal use. Many of the advanced features found on the Pro version are disabled in the free edition. But most of these are peripheral like CD burning and FTP client. The core features related to file archiving and compression remain untouched.


PowerArchiver 2010 Free supports all popular file compression formats including the open source 7zip format which was previously available only on Pro editions. It also has full support for ZIPX archives (LZMA, JPEG, PPMD, WavPacl, BZ2 format support) and makes PowerArchiver the only compression utility fully compatible with WinZip 12/13/14. Other typical ZIP/ZIPX related features include full Unicode support, AES encryption, unlimited file size/number and archive spanning (file splitting).

Apart from those mentioned above, the program comes with an archive format converter with ZIP, 7-ZIP, LHA, CAB, BH and TAR as the destination format.

PowerArchiver 2010 Free can repair corrupted ZIP/ZIPX archives, create multi-volume archives, merge multi-volume archives, extract multiple archives at once and operate in batch mode. The program also includes an advanced command line archiving tool for Windows console environments.

PowerArchiver’s website hasn’t yet updated with the new release, hence download the installer from Softpedia.
