    key isn't accepted here, it seems you need to install the setup provided by Giveaway of the day.

    /edit: ok, you have to enter the key at the setup under "promo", then it works, also with the setup from the attachment.

    @bulat: BULKZIP

    1) Today it is free. We can even try it just once.
    2) 7zip is great. 7zip i am using for my daily backups.
    3) This program here but still can more - except 7z it supports
    too another very interesting compression formats, e.g .:

    - * .zpaq - "compression with deduplication and journaling for incremental backups"
    - * .nz - "compression is partially stronger and faster than 7zip"

    Happy Testing

    PS:
    If this program includes source code from 7zip (GPL) or zpaq (GPL),
    the author of the program must publish the source code of the program too
    under GPL at least in terms of used / modified 7zip/zpaq - source code ?!

    best regards

    Bulkzip distribution includes zpaq.exe and zpaq64.exe version 7.04 with no changes from my original distribution. That's OK because versions 7.01 and later are public domain.

    It also includes Nanozip (nz.exe unmodified), FreeArc, PackArc, uhArc, 7z.dll and others. Don't know about licensing.

    @load: Thank you for your message.
    There is a problem with the registration in Windows, because the "key" is written in the registry to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Northstone\Bulkzip
    if another user logs in - then the software shows "Trial"

    Happy testing!

    @Matt Mahoney:
    Thank you for your explanation! "ZPAQ 7.x is public domain!"
    Thank you again for your wonderful zpaq-software!

    best regards

    Bulk is LZMA2, PPMd, and deflate. Nothing new. Not even deduplication. So, mutilated 7-zip.

    PJA is Matthias' PackArc. => jpg, mp3, pnm and "packari" (awfully slow and bad compression for non-specific files). Experimental archiver, non-solid mode uniquely.

    Bulk crashed several times trying to create a file. No stress test, just click on the gui buttons and boom.
