12Ghosts Zip

Standard ZIP support, easy handling



What does it do for me?

Fast compression, compatible with the ZIP industry standard, and with command line support. ZIP is the industry standard for compressed files, you may receive ZIP files by e-mail or download them from the Internet. Use 12-Zip to handle those files easily!


Use 12-Zip for fast standard compression


What's so special about it?

  • Graphical window to manage zip files
  • List view with sortable columns. Name, date, compressed size, ratio, and more
  • Large customizable toolbar buttons for the most used functions
  • Add dialog box to easily select files to add, including the options: Include subfolders, Save extra folder info, Include only if archive attribute is set, Reset archive attribute, Include system and hidden files
  • Add, Freshen, Move, Update files, different compression methods, wildcards accepted.
  • Extract dialog box to easily select the extract path, includes many unzip options: All or selected files, Overwrite existing files, Skip older files (update), Use folder names, browse for new folder.
  • View files by double-clicking
  • Properties for zip archive or included files
  • Faster than competing compression software: Our test revealed the following speed when compressing 10 MB of mixed files (text, executables, Word and Excel documents) at maximum compression (on a PII-233, 128 MB, Seagate Cheetah):
    - 12Ghosts Zip 21.0: 25.1 seconds
    - WinZip 7.0 SR-1: 31.7 seconds.
    - Result: WinZip needs 25% longer to compress the same amount of data.
  • Very small executable: 220 KB (not 2000 KB or even more!)
  • Industry ZIP standard supported, compatible with InfoGroup zip, gzip, PKZIP, WinZip, and many others
  • Full support of InfoGroup zip/unzip command line options
  • Environment variables are also supported (ZIPOPT and UNZIPOPT)
