If you need to add security to your files, the program lets you easily encrypt your files.

You can extract multiple files simultaneously (using multi extract in tools section), create multiple archives from individual files (using batch archive creation located in tools section) and repair archive if you are facing troubles with one of you archives.
There is a powerful SFX creator built in the program that allows users to create .exe file which can be opened by any user without the need to use compression software. When the user run this file, a dialog box will pop up and allow the user to select the “Extract To” folder by using a browse button or by typing in the destination folder name manually into the field. You can also easily convert any compression format into another one using the program (for example from Zip format into 7-ZIP)

For example  .pae and .pae2 files, ZIP AES, 7-zip AES and OpenPGP. This is important if you are using email or FTP connection to send private or confidential data. You can use the encrypt button under application menu or launch the encryption suite and use encrypt. You will be able to select the file you want to encrypt. Finally add security. That's all!

This will save your time and make the process very easy for you

Ashampoo Virtual Drive:

Todays, It is preferable to do backup of your purchased software DVD's to ISO files. This is important for you because of many reasons. First, you will be able to use them easier with Virtual Drive. Second, DVD's have short life and it is quite possible that it will not work that when you need it again (for example due to scratches). This become very easy using the program. Ashampoo Zip Pro 2 has a built in virtual drive tool that will let you create ISO files from disc using  copy disc to Image (.ISO) tool located under “Burner” menu.
In addition, you can use the mount feature of the virtual drive to create virtual dvd's from ISO images stored on your computer. You will not need to burn the ISO image first. It is most useful to backup your important DVD's to ISO images and then use them later on without having to burn the disc.
