The Magic of ZIPmagic: Browse Archives as Folders

Forget about having to learn the quirks of a separate archive management utility. ZIPmagic offers you the convenience of obviousness! Look inside all of your archives as if they were ordinary folders in Windows Explorer. It doesn't get any easier than this.

This is What Zip Folders Should Have Been - For All Formats

Use your favorite habits to manage archives: Copy and paste, or drag and drop to seamlessly extract/compress all plug-in supported formats. Double-clicking any file inside an archive opens it. You may even update the archive with the new file when you save your changes!

Three Transparent Full Disk Compression Tools

ZIPmagic includes not one, not two, but three full disk compression tools. From Tablet PCs to expensive SSDs, from virtual servers to private servers; ZIPmagic's full disk compression doubles or even triples your disk capacity. DriveSpace is the most versatile option, running on every Windows version, and compressing files and apps while they're still open! DoubleSpace is perfect for compressing your boot disks, and it easily doubles your disk capacity! Stacker can only be used on non-boot disks, but it achieves ratios nearing 4.0:1.

Secure E-mail Compression, Attachment Preview

ZIPmagic's Outlook Add-In integrates with every version of Microsoft(R) Outlook(TM) to auto-magically compress your email attachments when you click the "Send" button. Toggle compression on/off with the single click of the mouse, choose a different compression format, and even tweak compression algorithm parameters right within Outlook. Encrypt your data with 256 bit AES secure encryption and protect your sensitive data from prying eyes.

ZIPmagic's Outlook Integration does not stop with just attachment compression. Up to 61 different types of archive formats may be previewed when received as email attachments in Outlook. Double-click any file inside an archive preview to open it!

Intelligent Software That Works For You

Does your archive management utility create two levels of subfolders when you choose the "Extract to Subfolders" option? ZIPmagic is smarter, creating a parent folder only when it determines the archive doesn't already contain all of its files inside a master folder. Do you need to ensure no compressed files are left behind after extracting? Choose the "Recursive Extract" option and watch ZIPmagic sift through all archives nested inside one another for you.
How to compress files

How to Compress Files to Get the Smallest Possible Size?

First, in Windows Explorer, highlight the files and folders you want to compress. Next, right-click this selection of files and choose the "Find Smallest Archive" menu item. ZIPmagic instantly benchmarks all available compression algorithms on this live data set!

You may not already know this, but each compression algorithm has its own strengths and weaknesses - there's no single "best" one for all possible files. Fortunately, you now have a single-click way to find out how to compress files for the smallest possible size, every time!

Stop the religious wars, end the guesswork - let ZIPmagic do the heavy lifting for you.
