What is the Zip file extension? The Zip archive format makes it easier to send—and back up—large files or groups of files. A Zip file is a single file containing one or more compressed files, offering an ideal way to make large files smaller and keep all your related files together even when you email them to your colleagues. Here are the formats which are supported by our Zip Extractor Software. .ZIP / Zip .RAR / RAR .GZip / GZip .GZ/ GZ .7Z / 7Z .ISO / ISO .TAR / TAR .MIME / MIME .CAB / CAB .BZ2 / BZ2 and many more zip formats! Zipping your files allows you to download the files you need in a shorter amount of time as zipped files are usually smaller in size. Our zip software also allows you to open zipped files not just from your computer, it also allows you to open zipped files which are located on your Google Drive. Instructions on using our Zip Software to Unzip Files First of all, you need to determine whether the zipped file you wish to open is on your computer/Google Drive. Click on the correct button to begin uploading your zipped file to our server to unzip. Once you have chosen the zip file, please wait patiently for 5-10 seconds while our zip software gets to work and begins the unzipping process. Simply click on the "download" icon at the right hand side of each unzipped file to choose to download this unzipped file to your computer. Instructions on using our Zip software to Zip Files Up If you wish to zip files instead, choose the files you wish to make into one large zipped file. Our zip software will begin working and present a zipped file for you to download once the zipping process has finished. Please note all files which are uploaded to our server are deleted within 1 hour once the zip/unzip process is completed. We highly value your privacy and all files which are uploaded are deleted within a short time period. If you need to unzip the same file again after 1 hour, you'll need to reupload the file to our servers to be unzipped again. Our unzip/zip software works well on the Google Chrome browser and you do not need to download any desktop software to unzip your files. We're one of the few unzip softwares which work with files located within Google Drive!
