ZIP Pro 2 safely handles 60 formats with ease. Multi-core support speeds up archive creation and optional 256-bit encryption provides that extra bit of security. The integrated automatic backup feature supports both local and external storage solutions such as cloud or FTP services. Disc burning is also included.

The new integrated Explorer features a classic split view with instant file previews and quick access to all essential ZIP features.
