What is PentaZip?

The basic function of the software PentaZip is to allow the user to compress files. It is a utility that is bundled with software products from PentaWare, the developer of the compression program. The software is generally installed with PentaSuite-PRO, PentaZip-PRO, PentaSuite DigiPhoto and PentaSuite Business-PRO. However, the software may also be purchased as a standalone program. A free trial version is available, with limited functions.

The program also serves as a decompression tool. It can handle archives in formats such as ZIP, ZIPX, ZIP64 and BZIP2, as well as CAB, RAR, TAR, GZIP, ARJ, LHA, ZGB and LZH. As a compression tool, users may compress files in any of twelve archiving formats the program supports. These formats include ZIP, ZGB, CAB, JAR, TAR, BZIP2, ZIP64, GZIP and BH.

PentaZip also serves as a file converter and PDF creator, and also has encryption utilities for protecting archives that will be shared on the Internet or sent via email. The latest version of the software likewise has an integrated CD burning tool, which can be accessed through the PentaCD option from the user interface.
