Archiving files can save some free space on your hard drive and enhance the portability of the processed files. B1 Free Archiver is a program that lets you create, open and extract archive files with only a few clicks.
This application comes with numerous helpful features, it has an easy-to-use interface and provides support for plenty of compression formats and powerful archive file encryption algorithms. You have access to a comprehensive user manual which comes in handy in case you have any questions regarding the program's functionality.
B1 Free Archiver offers you a fast and efficient file compression process that can run in the background while you complete other tasks. A great advantage of this program is that it uses a very small amount of CPU resources.
An aspect which I consider to be a significant disadvantage of this application is that it lets you compress files only to B1 and ZIP archives. Although the program supports a wide range of compression formats when it comes to opening or extracting archive files, it allows you to create only B1 and ZIP archive documents.
Briefly, if you can ignore B1 Free Archiver's single disadvantage, this application might prove to be a great addition to your collection of programs. Another reason for you to give this archive manager a try is the fact that it's open source, therefore, you don't have to pay to use it.
