Insider is a lightweight Windows utility that helps users create archived items and encrypt the information by setting up passwords.

The tool sports a clean and straightforward layout that allows users to set up the entire process with just a few clicks.

A new archived file can be created by specifying the saving directory and name, adding the items and folders to be compressed, picking the compression method, making the program include subfolders, and saving the full path info.

Plus, you can set up passwords for making sure sensitive data remains private from unauthorized viewing.

Other important features worth mentioning are represented by the possibility to make file associations (e.g. ACE, ARC, BH, JAR, LHA, ZIP, ZOO, Z, ARJ, GZ), insert comments, extract the archives directly from the primary panel, and add new items to the existing ones.

Last but not least, you can create a self-extracting archive which has the EXE file format, test the archived files for possible errors, open the selected items from the archives with just one click, as well as view information about the compressed items, such as path, name, size, number of files, date, and others.

During our testing we have noticed that the utility carries out a task quickly and without errors throughout the entire process.

To sum things up, Insider offers an intuitive layout for helping users compress files and set up passwords. Although it cannot compete with other powerful tools on the market, it remains light on the system resources and can be mastered even by less experienced users.
