WinHKIi is a simple-to-use program which allows you to compress and decompress files in a user-friendly environment. It comes packed with a few essential features for users of any level of experience.
The interface of the application is clean and pretty intuitive, similar to the one of WinRAR or WinZIP. So, you can use the Explorer-based layout to locate and select the files and folders you want to compress.
Once you write the archive name and establish its location and format, you can proceed with the compression procedure. WinHKIi supports plenty of file types for the output, including BH, CAB, JAR, TAR and ZIP.
Advanced users may select the compression level, make the app delete the files after archiving, apply a signature, write comments and create SFX archives, as well as test the integrity of the newly created compressed items.
Furthermore, it is possible to span the archives and pick the spanning mode (splitting or spanning), as well as protect the files with a password, after choosing an encryption algorithm (e.g. Blowfish, DES Single, 256-bit AES Rijndael). Extracting content from archived files is seamlessly done.
The program runs on a low-to-moderate amount of CPU and system memory, so it shouldn't put a strain on the computer's resources. It has a good response time, quickly finishes a task, and includes user documentation. We have not come across any problems in our testing; WinHKIi did not freeze, crash or show error notifications. Although there are no groundbreaking features available, WinHKIi can be seamlessly figured out by users with minimal experience in such apps.
