Bandizip 1.01

Bandizip 1.02 is out

Bandizip is Lightweight, Fast, and Free archiving software and it works with WinZip, 7-Zip, WinRAR and other archive formats.
It handles the most popular compression formats, including Zip, 7z, and Rar files for free!.
Bandizip supports for ZIP, 7Z, RAR, ALZ, EGG, TAR, BH, LZH, GZ, BZ2, ISO, CAB, WIM, XZ, ARJ, and Z archives files and users can create self-extracting files (.EXE) and multi-volume (split) archives files.
The main advantage of this program is supporting Unicode file system.
Non-English characters in file names will be displayed properly and it will be extracted without breaking international characters.
When you archive multimedia files (AVI, WMV, MP3...) or archived files (ZIP, RAR, 7Z...), you can't get good compression results.
These files are hard to compress and sometimes the file size could be bigger than the original one.
Bandizip's "High Speed Archiving" function will allow you to compress or bypass the files its own algorithm.
It will increase the archiving speed dramatically. A number of file archiving software extract files to temporary folder, and then it copies the files to the targeted folder.
Bandizip's "Fast Drag & Drop" function does not use temporary folder, and it just extracts to the targeted folder directly. It will increase the extraction speed dramatically.

I've been looking for a good free alternative to WinRAR that isn't 7Zip (god I hate its looks). Will check this out, thanks!

This looks very good. Will try it out for at least a couple of days. No problems so far!

I've just installed it. I really like it so far. I've been using 7zip, but I really don't like the GUI of it. This looks better. Much better... :whistle:

Nice to see a simple free archive software out there other than 7zip, wish there was a software that integrates opening archives in all these formats in windows explorer itself (If technically possible) though. It would be seamless and really cool.
