Supported File Types

ZipGenius supports more than 20 types of archives. Some of them can handle compression and extraction, some can just decompress archives and some others can be used in read mode only.

You will see that some file types require an external tool. This means that ZipGenius can’t handle them straight out-of-the-box and you need to download these tools from other sources.
