    This “Free” version has a large nagware banner about the license status and includes TrialPay. I’ll pass and continue to use 7-zip.

    What can PowerArchiver more like 7zip ?
    there are so many opensource tools. why should I take a program that must be paid?

    GREGG’s COMMENT: So then, it’s not really freeware. This entire page needs to be either removed, or its headline, and the words of its body text, and the words of all references to it throughout this site need to be changed so that it’s no longer implied that it’s freeware.

    Also, just FYI, everyone: The alternatives (7zip, and PeaZip) are good. But, I dunno… I’ve tried them all, dating back to old PK-ZIP version 1 for DOS (I’m an old guy, you see… 33 years in IT), and I’ve found that IZArc is about the best thing going. It’s just my opinion, of course, but it’s about as good as this sort of utility gets, all things considered.

    Gregg you’re completely right, and I avoid these kind of programs since there are such great freeware applications like IZArc, which unlike 7Zip can also repair damaged zip archives !
