What ZArchiver Can Exactly Do?
Compression and Extraction. There are instances where you wanted to send numerous files or high-quality images to your friends but are low on data and time. Or, wanted to save hundreds of files on your phone but running out of storage. This is where tools like ZArchiver come in handy.
ZArchiver lets you compress all your files (including images, videos, GIFs, documents) into an archived file, which is reduced in size, making it easier and quicker to share. Also to note, reducing in size doesn't mean the quality of files within are degraded but maintained in the same quality.
ZArchiver supports compression of files into 7z (7zip), zip, bzip2 (bz2), gzip (gz), XZ, lz4, tar, and zst (zstd) formats. Besides the ability of such lossless compression, ZArchiver can also decompress (extract) a number of the following file formats:
7z (7zip), zip, rar, rar5, bzip2, gzip, XZ, iso, tar, arj, cab, lzh, lha, lzma, xar, tgz, tbz, Z, deb, rpm, zipx, mtz, chm, dmg, cpio, cramfs, img (fat, ntfs, ubf), wim, ecm, lzip, zst (zstd), egg and alz.
ZArchiver lets you view the files within an archived file without extraction too. File compressed into 7z (7zip), zip, rar, rar5, bzip2, gzip, XZ, iso, tar, arj, cab, lzh, lha, lzma, xar, tgz, tbz, Z, deb, rpm, zipx, mtz, chm, dmg, cpio, cramfs, img (fat, ntfs, ubf), wim, ecm, lzip, zst (zstd), egg and alz supports viewing the files within.
Users can also edit their archived folders like you can add files without decompressing them, and remove files from them too. Also, they can set passwords to their compressed files (or folders) for better security. Sharing these files with others prompts them to enter the pre-set password for decrypting.
And if ZArchiver is pre-installed on your device, you can view an archive file's contents directly from the mail. Also, certain file types like 7z and rar support multi-part archiving and extraction of split archives.
ZArchiver is portrayed as a simple file manager and has a clean UI for easy navigation. It asks permissions for storage for saving archived files and read/write access to SD card for making changes. Also, users can get detailed information about a file, like its file type, size, author, last modification, path, hash type.
