B1 Free Archiver Review

Sven Sorensen
File archiving software which creates, extracts and password-protects various types of compression formats
A review of B1 Free Archiver by Sven Sørensen

B1 Free Archiver is a useful utility which can compress and extract the contents of several different compression formats such as B1, ZIP, RAR, 7Z, CAB, JAR, BZ2, TGZ and others.

The application interface of B1 is both modern and easy on the eyes with many of its features one or two clicks away. From the main window of the program, you can create, open and extract files from the top menu bar.

Creating archives is a quick process and adding password protection to created archives is an option. It also offers different levels of compression. Other options include testing file integrity, creating multi-part archives, cut/copy/delete, etc.

The installer offers you the ability to integrate the program with the Windows shell by adding "Extract" and "Create archive" items to the context menu.

The settings dialog is very simple features file associations in Windows, default actions, automatic updates, context menu integration and the option to show hidden files.

All in all, B1 Free Archiver is a must-have for any novice PC user who isn't up-to-par with the more advanced programs yet also offering unique abilities to more advanced users in a lovely user interface.
