Bandizip Edition Comparison
I was using Bandizip but now with ads? Better go for PeaZip.
I saw today the new Dandizip 7 beta with ADS, is so sad.... was my favourite zip app, I don't like ads so best alternative probably is Peazip that is basically 7Zip with some addiction in terms of security (encryption)
Upcoming changes to file compression software Bandizip
