Batch Zip Folders Utility is a straightforward application you can use to compress the subfolders of a specified directory in separate ZIP archives. It doesn't include complicated options, so it can be used even by those less experienced with archiving tools.

The setup operation is a fast task which shouldn't impose any difficulties, thanks to the fact that there are no unfamiliar options, software requirements, or third-party offers bundled.

As far as the interface is concerned, Batch Zip Folders Utility adopts a small window with a plain appearance and clear-cut structure, where you can get an overview of all options before diving into the compression job.

It's possible to browse for the folder containing the subfolders you want to compress, indicate the saving directory of the new ZIP archives, as well as include or exclude the subfolder itself, along with its contents into each archive.

The operation can be started with one click and canceled if it takes too long or if you change your mind. If subdirectories cannot be zipped due to various reasons, the program skips them and continues with the task, so there are no interruptions that would force you to restart the job. At the end of it, it reveals a message with the errors.

We haven't encountered any unpleasant surprises in our evaluation when it comes to stability, since the tool didn't freeze, crash or specify errors. It finishes tasks swiftly while remaining light on system resources, using a low quantity of CPU and RAM.

Although it hasn't received updates for a long time, Batch Zip Folders Utility worked well on newer Windows models in our tests. It may not be feature-rich, but it offers a simple solution for compressing subfolders into separate ZIP archives.
