Key Features FreeArc
First I would like to dwell on the fact that the program is open source, which means to change and modify it can be anyone. Moreover, this software is available in several releases and can be used in the form of graphical and console versions in the environment of Windows operating systems and Linux.
If we talk about the basic features, they are wide enough. For example. The app allows you to easily use a variety of universal compression algorithm, including LZMA, PPMD, TrueAudio, compression algorithms of multimedia data, as well as algorithms for fast compression type GRZIP for texts and Tornado for binary data. In addition, the program assumes that the set of filters, among which the most important are the REP, DICT, DELTA, BCJ and LZP. There are also, and presets for Precomp, ECM, CCM (x), PPMonstr, Durilca, LPAQ, UDA and PAQ. Naturally, the data logger has a function quickly create self-extracting archives such as SFX. Naturally, it is supported and work on the HTTP protocol with acknowledgment of receipt of the list of files and their subsequent decompression. But that's not all. The program allows for complete testing of any type of files, either before or after the execution of an operation. Most of all, pleased, then this software is even Restore archives. But this should please many users, who once faced, say, with an unexpected end of archive when unpacking.
However, if you look, along with many advantages, there are some drawbacks. Unfortunately, this product is missing some important features that are inherent in such giants in the field, as WinRAR or 7-ZIP. In particular, there is no version for use on 64-bit systems not supported by segmentation and some of the features and attributes of the file system NTFS, BCJ2. Although, in general, the program shows itself at a high level and can claim to be one of the best in sovey orientation.
