Thank you for voting!
Please add a comment explaining the reason behind your vote.

I asked a question earlier (Post #15) but I checked and Cnet has an active link so my question is answered. The program (KuaiZip) I was searching for is very much like WinRAR but free, thanks again to Giovanni and Karl as well as a few other regulars for offering your informative and unbiased opinions. I've always ignored the rating system and instead looked for a select few reviewers to learn more of the application offered.
Also thank you to GOTD for providing us with free software daily.

Re comment by Alan (#3). For a valid email address you can use an address such as AlanGAOTD@yopmail.com. It doesn't divert any emails to your base email address and you can check it to get passwords, etc. However, for the rest of the time it just sits there and all spam gets automatically deleted in a day or so without your knowledge. Very useful.

The free Haozip does it all.

The immediate negative thumbs down may not be from people who have downloaded and tested the software. They may come from people like me, who do not like all the personal information which is demanded before you can even see whether the software is useful or not. If I think that I am being asked to provide too much information in order to just see whether or not I would find the program useful, then I will not download it, and will give it a thumbs down.

I didn't vote on this for I don't know if it's good or not and won't be finding out. I never need to make archives, just extract them, I use extractnow for that. extractnow.com the best extractor I've ever used and it's FREE :D (extractnow.com/releases for the portable version)

Greetings everyone!

I'm a bit perplexed by this software's author's claims regarding the amount of compression and its increased capabilities over competing software(s). Some files (such as image and video files) are by their very nature already compressed and optimized for minimum "footprint," and can't be compressed much (if any) more than they already are in their native state, regardless of the efficacy of the compression software.

On the company's sales page (given above), they also state that image files can be extracted, modified, and then re-inserted into the compressed archive with minimal effort. If so, that function could prove useful in some instances, although it's something that's more likely to be used in a commercial environment than in "everyday" home use. Since the terms of most giveaways here prohibit commercial use of the offering, I suppose that point is somewhat moot.

Finally, with regard to the rating system: I personally don't lend it very much credence since there doesn't appear to be a consensus on what its function is, and what it actually represents. I prefer to think of it as being similar to Facebook's "like" function, which is also routinely misused by people who use it just to simply acknowledge that they've SEEN the post, but may not be indicating that they actually "like" the content it contains.

I've discovered that often a great deal more can be learned from the responses below each comment as to its usefulness, although some people may have a tendency to state things in such a manner that they end up defeating their own cause, resulting in their being rebuffed - not so much for what they said, but how they said it! Still, one can gather a general consensus by studying the responses to certain comments and commenters, with Giovanni, ashraf, Karl, ric and xp-man being some excellent sources of information and guidance, and are worth paying attention to. (Please forgive me if you're a regular contributor here and I've omitted your name - I appreciate YOUR contributions as well!)

The rating system may be a general indication of the item's popularity, but anyone who bases their decisions solely on the number of "thumbs up" votes that an offering receives - and doesn't bother to actually do some due diligence on that offering - deserves whatever they end up with!

(These are usually the same people who don't pay close attention when installing a new software, not noticing important things in their haste such as leaving certain check-boxes ticked, which often results in tons of adware - or worse - being installed along with the desired application. Such "bundling" of adware into installation apps are commonplace these days, and I usually have to dedicate an hour or two each week just to clearing such adware and malware from my wife's computer - despite my admonitions for her to be careful about such things!)

@25, no, everyone gets the offering at the same time, for me, its 7pm every day, and thanks to the dateline, the day before most others do. New Zealand is the first nation to see the new dawn, using your logic, we would still have the previous days offering, but no.

I to will pass on todays giveaway but thanks for all the giveaways!!!

"The moment this program appeared there were 5 thumb-downs already." This could be from a difference in time zones.

@RonaldR - You forgot about control freaks with obsessive compulsive disorders who cringe and wig out when other people don't do things the same way; it could be something mundane like a meaningless internet vote but matters not to those types. They feel that a crusade must be launcehed whenever events unfold in any way other than their way. Don't forget about those people, RobertR.

No need to worry about giving email address.
Some would already have given their email previously.

IIRC, Filestream has given away software before:
FileStream Take-1 Recorder
FileStream Sync TOGO
Filestream Turbo Browser
FileStream WebBoomerang

So far they have not flooded me with spam.
Thus it is a non-issue.

About XP-Man's mention of the software associating itself - need to know whether this compulsory and done without asking your permission; or is it set by the user during the installation of this software - i.e. the software asks you whether you would like to associate it with various file types.

There are too many outstanding compression/decompression freeware, the names of which have been mentioned here in other posts.
Some may remember the old standby PKZip and PKUnZip.

As to which is best, it depends on one's special task requirements and affinity for a particular software's User Interface.

Why all the fuss about up/down voting? It's been going on forever on this site. The same thing happens with comments as well. A few weeks ago, I happened to come back here about 23 hours after a giveaway had been posted. Every comment except for ones from the developer, and ones saying something on the lines of "Thank you GOTD and the developer, this is exactly what I need. It's going to change my life.", had been massively downvoted. I wonder who could have been responsible?

RE: #1

Some people think they are supposed to rate on whether the download looks interesting to them, not on whether it is a good program compared to other programs of its type. You wouldn't expect them to download the program in order to say whether or not they want to download it!

The issue is more likely the terse instructions. Admittedly people don't read instructions; still, if some people only rate after they compare this to 7zip, while others rate on whether the description makes them want to download it at all, the rating is not helpful to either the publisher or their potential customers. GAOTD should address this issue, which has been an issue since the beginning! Or just remove the "user rating" since it is worthless as it stands.

Please, does this perform search for file names inside .zip files?
Can you guys provide me alternative software having this feature alone?

Thanks in advance!

"But some people might have got some previous experience with the software already and vote based on that."

Then they should post their experiences with the software rather than just voting it down.

And if you are correct, did they have experience with the same version as currently offered? I've tried many programs over the years that did not impress me, but a later version was completely different (and conversely I've dumped new versions which I felt were worse than their predecessors).

As for zip programs, I still prefer the payware Winzip for one simple reason - when I double-click a readme.txt or bmp Winzip will extract just that file and display it in notepad or viewer, almost instantly. Every other zip program I've tried insists on extracting the entire contents of the archive to a temp folder, then opening the requested file - a procedure which can take thirty to sixty seconds for a large zipfile.

@1 — If YOU are #1 on the list, and there are all ready 5 negative comments, why are you not #6? Since you were not, the comments must be from a previous experience. The questions are, then, why are those comments counted but not listed? Where ARE they if they are not part of the current listing? (Check the dates on comments).

It's perfectly FINE for someone to download the program and begin to install it and object to the registration requirements and discard it out of hand. Their opinion, not yours.

Many GAOTD offerings require only a valid email address to obtain a registration number. This however asks for a complete mailing address and forced into a newsletter. I expect this if registering your TV or washing machine but not a software giveaway. Uninstalling.

@ #6 Giovanni, love to try the KuaiZip but the 2 provided mirrors provided by Softpedia both lead to a "Test page" not in English that Chrome seems unable to translate. Love your reviews (and Karl too) and the program suggested looks great in screenshots. Could you provide alternative verified safe links perhaps? I'm assuming the program is no longer developed which seems sad because it looks like a great alternative. Thank you.

PLEASE FORGET the suggested alternative of IZARC! It _WAS_ a wonderful program once, but only last week I was trying it and the last several versions do not seem to have changed the actual program, just the unwanted programs bundled with it. In my attempts to install it I found that even if you opted out of everything, you would still get either them, or other things installed that you were not even told were going to be bundled. Some is very difficult to remove as well. I had to go with 7-zip in the end. Please try this program if you need more than the basic zip included with later versions of windows, or 7-zip, or one of the many others available.

I beg to disagree with *1 and *5. Yes, some people turn their thumbs down without thinking. But some people might have got some previous experience with the software already and vote based on that.

All you need to do if you have a use for s daily download give it a try if you like leave a comment and thumbs up. If you don't need it don't be one of those that give thumbs down because they don"t need it ,Self centered egoists that don't give a stuff about any one else, They could not produce software as good as the ones they come in here daily and give thumbs down with out trying them .

Did a small compare with Winzip, and it is almost similar, except the TurboZIP Express GUI is a lot dirty looking.
But OP can provide any other info on this.

On going to the registration web page I was greeted by a long list of boxes requesting information.
It informed me that I would automatically subscribe to newsletter, no way!

Was intrigued as to how such a high price could be charged when there is so much freeware available so decided to look for a trial version on the web.

Found version 7.2 downloaded and installed; it immediately requested to fill in configuration for the program.

It looks like it could be useful to someone who does a lot of work with file compression, lots of functions. Why don't they give a screenshot of this I can't imagine, it would help users to see what they were getting into.

What I didn't like was that for a trial it would make too many changes such as associations in the registry.

I uninstalled it using an uninstaller and then ran ERUNT to make sure there were no changes to the registry.
In my view this program is far, far too intrusive to test without having a good means of removal, so unless you really need a comprehensive, compression program I would stay away from it.

Installed and registered with problems on a Win 8.1.2 Pro 64 bit system.

In the registration field, they want to know a lot :
Registered users of Filestream software are automatically subscribed to our Newsletter.

An US company with address : FileStream, Inc. is a privately owned corporation headquartered in Glen Head, New York.

After installation, there are many options to choose. I selected nothing and took the default values.

In a first test a 460 Mbyte (not compressible) RAR file was converted to a ZIP file in the nearly same size in 2 min 5 sec.

7zip finished the same operation with a slightly bigger file (+3Mbyte) in 1min 15 sec.

a 208 Mbyte directory with PDF's was converted to a ZIP file by 7zip in 33 sec. The resulting size was 195 Mbyte.

Turbozip finished the same task in 15 sec. The resulting file size was 199 Mbyte. 4 Mbyte more with the highest compression level 9 in the settings.

A complete ZIP program with many features. Does not reach the compression of 7zip in my short test. Useful for multi zip handling.

The claim :
TurboZIP Express maximally compressed files (at LZX Level 21) are 10 to 50% smaller than conventional ZIP and 2 to 10% smaller than ARJ or RAR. gave the following result:

Converting to a CAB file with compression level 21 (see settings!) took 2 Min 40 sec and resulted in a 195 Mbyte file. The same size as with 7zip but 5 times more...

You have to handselect the files, where this program gives some advantage ;-)

I'll keep the freeware 7zip.

Have a nice weekend.

Proof that you can't trust the ratings. The moment this program appeared there were 5 thumb-downs already. So within a few seconds five people downloaded, tried and rated this program. Very interesting. They are a con. People should ignore the ratings and go by valid comments.
