Archive Manager is an application for managing archive files, for example, .zip or .tar files; it is designed to be easy to use. Archive Manager provides all the tools that are necessary for creating, modifying and extracting archives.

An archive consists of one or more files and folders, along with metadata. It may be encrypted in part or as a whole. Archive files are useful for storing data and transferring it between computers as they allow you to collect multiple files into one.

With Archive Manager you can:

  • create a new archive

  • view the content of an existing archive

  • view a file contained in an archive

  • modify existing archives

  • extract files from an archive
