Software Overview

Main Features

  • Simple and fast user interface
  • Uncompresses most popular archive formats
  • Encrypts and password protects archives
  • Highly stable, safe, and secure

B1 Free Archiver is an open source file manager and archiver that is available for Windows, Linux, Mac, and Android. The program can open most popular archive file formats but can only compress .B1 and .ZIP archives.

B1 Free Archiver is useful for decompressing archive files from many common formats and has a few other useful features as well. It is capable of creating split archives and editing the contents of archives without decompressing them. It can also create password-protected archives that are encrypted using a 256-bit AES algorithm.

If you are looking for a free and easy-to-use archiving/unarchiving program, B1 Free Archiver is worth a try. If you need to be able to create archives in a format other than .B1 or .ZIP, you will have better luck with a different compression utility.
