    This archiver is very nice, but the only problem I have with it is (At least for now)....

    When I double click an Archive or even double click b1 Archiver to open up the program, it takes a few seconds for it to open up.

    I sent my feedback regarding the above

    If you have any feedback for the developers, click on the link below.

    I also sent them a link to this Wilder's post.

    I got to say though, I like the encryption feature the most.

    Why is the B1 standalone installer for Windows over 20 MBs in size? WinRar 4.20's 64 bit installer is only 1600 KBs. Makes me wonder what else is packed inside that executable.

    Later...

    Maybe they just need to tweak a few thing's here and there, including their installer size.

    But, aside from it's few annoyances, it seems pretty solid and quite safe.

    It just depends on what your requirements are in an archiver program, PeaZip (at least for now) offers more than B1 Free Archiver, but that can all change in a matter of time, especially since they plan on introducing more features and fixes.

    I say try it out, see if you like it or not.
