Publisher's Description

TUGZip is an advanced archiving utility with an easy-to-use interface. It supports a wide rage of file formats. You can create 7-ZIP, BZ2, CAB, LHA (LZH), SQX, TAR, TGZ, YZ1 and ZIP archives. It has built-in support for reading/extracting ZIP, 7-ZIP, A, ACE, ARJ, BZ2, CAB, CPIO, DEB, GCA, GZ, IMP, LHA (LZH), LIB, RAR, RPM, SQX, TAR, TGZ, TBZ, TAZ and YZ1 archives.

Support for the new Zip64 algorithm enables you to create archives at a total size of 4GB. Included in the package is also a SFX-tool and a scripting tool wich simplifies secure and automated backups. You can encrypt/decrypt files using six different algorithms, Blowfish (128-bit), DES (56-bit), Triple DES (168-bit) and Rijndael (128-bit, 192-bit and 256-bit). You can even convert them to SFX-archives.

Good product.

Still some problem to compress on a USB device (key or drive) with ZIP format.

I like the app, especially the fact that you can create self-extracting executables for free whether you are a personal or business user.

However, development has slowed significantly and support is by the authors own admission, hardly available any more.

While I applaud the effort, I simply can't give it the type of score I would like to give it. If it were more actively developed and supported, I think it would be a much better resource for users. But with WinRAR being so good and 7zip holding its own, TUGZip will have a hard time standing out from the crowd, I think.

This is the best archive utility in my opinion.

My only question is that this area is pretty crowded now with programs and do we really need another one?

I give this program a 5, because it is clean, simple, works great.

It does have a couple of things I can gripe about though.

Winrar will allow you to add an icon to the SFX extractor, plus show a license screen (handy for showing ahem, the serials of some programs that went freeware & have the key included).

But tugzip doesn't allow you to change the icon of the SFX. In addition, doesn't seem to support totally silent SFX like winrar, but shows an extract dialogue.

Am slightly annoyed that it shows 3 possibilities for SFX package, but you can only use 1 because the other 2 are greyed out.

But for zipping, unzipping, yada yada, works nice.
Would really love to see support for viewing sfx comments (so you can remember/change it in the future if you have to, like winrar), & the ability to change the icon of the sfx, plus a totally silent sfx.

Because sometimes you just want it to launch, say, a driver backup program with no dialogue.

Overall, good program, but would be better with these enhancements!

The program has a really nice interface. I would have kept it, if it were able to extract all the files from AA28FullInstaller_BitTorrent.exe (which I think is 7-zip self-extracting archive). Unfortunately TUGZip could read only 2 files from there. Some other archiver (IZArc) could extract all the files though.

This is a very good application. It lets you create numerous archive types (RAR and ACE with a plugin) and view them all. What's nice is the fact that you can look through zip files through it's explorer style interface very quickly. Much better than winzip. Uses 10MB during runtime.

First impressions:

Main GUI looks nice and clean, i like it.

First i noticed that it spams all the context menu items to the root of the menu but cleverly the coder added option to change this. Which is nice. :)

Also i dont like the look of the icon in explorer. IZarc or normal zip looking icon is little better.

While TUGZip offers RAR creation and extraction, along with 7-Zip and 7z support, I hope it continues to improve.

First impression of this program is wow! Why did I stick to WinRAR :-) I like it, the only thing that can be done better that icons. But no problem, I will create my own pack of icons.

Love it... I never actually went for anything other than winrar or izarc, but now that I have had a play with this I won't bother with the others. And it's free! :D

Nice program if not use zip associations. Default Windows XP functions may be killed without restoring.
