Muzip icon Build archives of formats like ZIP, TAR, GZ, UUE, and a few more, with various compression methods, option to build self-extracting archives, password protect items, and more

A basic method of protection for your files is to bundle them inside an archive, because malicious content can’t infiltrate. Various algorithms got developed over the years for proper file compression as well, and there are tons of archiving utilities at your disposal, and Muzip is a suitable example here.

Clean, intuitive visual design

You first need to go through a simple setup process just to ensure the proper deployment of the application features. You get the chance to launch it right afterwards, but it’s a good idea to perform a system restart if you want to have instant access to context menu integration as well.

As far as the visual design is concerned, the application doesn’t put much emphasis on aesthetics, but elements are well-organized across the interface. The upper toolbar holds most functions, while the center area is split into several panes, which include a folder tree view, file navigator, as well as a preview where available.

Set up compression and archiving options

The application can cover up a decent variety of archive formats, and you can even choose to associate with GZ, TAR, TAZ, TGZ, UU, UUE, XXE, Z, and ZIP, but it’s hardly enough to cover modern ones. By default, output comes under the ZIP format, but this can be specified during archive building.

An empty archive is initially created, and you can easily select the files and folders to place inside. Compression ratio is customizable, and there’s even the option to have a password configured for more security. Archives can either be left in their original format, or built as self-extracting executable files.

On an ending note

Taking everything into consideration, we can state that Muzip comes with a decent variety of features to help you neatly handle archives and compression. However, it supports a pretty small bunch of archive types, which might make you look for alternatives or stick to tools you’re already familiar with.
