Archive Converter – Convert Archive Quickly for Free
Need an archive converter that can convert an archive to many other archives? If so, ArcConvert is a free portable archive converter program that you might be looking for. All popular archive formats such as rar, zip, 7z, cab and many other archives are supported. It would be very useful in certain situations like if you want to convert all zip archives within your computer to rar archives to get more space, or from rar to zip if you happen to have no rar extractor to extract the archive.
ArcConvert can convert these archive formats:
7-ZIP/ LZH / CAB / ZIP / ARJ / ACE / RAR / TAR / TGZ / GZ / Z / BZ2 / YZ1 / YZ2 / GCA / BEL / RPM / DEB/ BH / Noa32 / HKI / PAQAR / SQX /HA /ZOO /UHARC /LFB / ZLIB / UCL / IMP / RS / SPL / APK / Arc / DZ / MSI / ALZ / PMA / PAQ7 / CHM / UDA / PAQ8 / Cryptonite / ISO / LZOP / BMA / ZIP AES (128/192/256) / Nanozip Alpha
to the following archive formats:
ZIP, 7-ZIP, CAB, LHA, TAR, TGZ, BZ2, YZ1, BGA, RAR, ACE, NOA32, HKI, PAQAR, UHARC, YZ2, DZ, HA
However, since .rar and .ace are proprietary archive formats, you must have installed Winrar and Winace in your computer to be able to convert any of the supported archives into either of these two. Other features you can get from ArcConvert is the ability to set the conversion priority, to check the type of the archive you load to the program, to stop the conversion process, and there is also an automatic password detection.
After the archive conversion process completed, the program will let you know if the size of the result is smaller or bigger than the original, and ask if you want to delete the original archive. You can also check how much size difference resulted from the conversion in the main window.
ArcConvert is a freeware designed for Windows users. The conversion runs relatively fast. The drawback is that you can only convert one archive at a time. You cannot convert multiple archives at once.
