Bitser–Free Archive and Backup Software for Windows


Bitser is a free windows app for managing zip archives and backups similar to Winzip, 7-zip and Winrar but with an alternate user interface. Bitser's interface is built around the file system with explorer style views and features similar to those found in backup applications. All underlying archiving functions are performed using the open source 7-zip compression software and therefore all major archiving formats are supported. Bitser also provides a password manager and a MD5/SHA checksum calculator to verify file identity.
