Software Overview

ConeXware PowerArchiver is a utility used to compress, encrypt, and back up data in Windows. It is available in Standard, Professional, and Toolbox editions, with each edition offering more advanced features than the last.

PowerArchiver features read and write support of a variety of compression formats, including ZIP, ZIPX, 7-Zip, Tar, GZIP, and their proprietary Advanced Codec Pack (.PA) format. Additionally, the utility provides read and extract support of the RAR, ARC, and XAR formats. PowerArchiver's range of supported formats can also be extended by installing plugins.

The archiver offers multicore compression and quick RAR extraction, along with full OpenPGP support and FIPS 140-2 validation for securing and encrypting your files. PowerArchiver also enables you to send and open your compressed files to and from different cloud services, such as DropBox, Google Drive, and Windows SkyDrive, directly through the application.

PowerArchiver is a very capable file compression program for Windows users. It offers support for a variety of compression formats, secure file encryption, and other handy archiving tools. However, the utility faces stiff competition from the more popular WinZip program and free 7-ZIP utility, which makes ConeXware PowerArchiver a less attractive option.
