Discovered nice utility for compressing, uncompressing over at http://www.izarc.org. Some of the listings that this utility will work on, I have never of. Best of all it's free.

Be warned, I tried this app some time ago, and the remnants it left in the registry when uninstalling it, were a complete PITA to get rid of.

Thanks Steve for info. Did you use a reg cleaner to do a cleanup of it. And if so which one? I've never manually messed with the the reg.

Used RegCleaner to get rid of most of it, then manually did the rest

RegCleaner (last freeware version)

Yeah daveshrop, I am in the process of learning how to use it. I guess some of the items such as "gza", "tbz", and more, that must something that perhaps old obsolete programs once in use, used.

Can't say i've used it to its full functionality by any means but the revues were so good on Snapfiles i switched from another prog.
ExtractNow is also an excellent small prog.
