Nowadays, as hard drive capacity continues to grow larger, we still have requirements to reduce file size. Meanwhile, as email attachments have size limitations and uploading to cloud services, Zip File Software / File Compression Software is still an essential tool.
I researched over 10 File compression Software products, read lots of user reviews of each software, and eventually listed the Top 5 best Zip File Software
, summarized their pros and cons as well. I exclude the other 5 file compression software because of fewer downloads, stop maintenance or poor features - Bandizip (Win)
, Express Zip File Compression Software (Win)
, Ultra Zip (Win)
, Commander One (Mac)
, Ashampoo ZIP Pro (Win)
, Cisdem Unarchiver for Mac (Mac)
