This compact tool allows users to compress files as well as to create self-extracting and password-protected archives. You can customize the application settings.
UHARC 0.6b is a file super compressor for Windows developed by Sam Gleske. Users can create password encrypted and self-extracting archives. It is compact and lightweight.
How does it work
After the installation, you can start compressing by right clicking any file and picking the appropriate option. There is no interface, the program utilizes the default command line interpreter used in every Windows version. It is possible to see the list of all the files within an archive.
Users are able to customize the application to fit their needs in the settings menu. To get access, it is necessary to open the program directory and click the executable.
You can select dictionary size and toggle recursive directories as well as pick which file attributes and types should be excluded. It is also possible to set up a custom prefix for the archives and choose either .pkd or .uha file extension. Moreover, there is a special button for software updates. It is worth noting that the program lacks multi-language support.
The program can make self-extracting archives that do not require proper software to unpack. Moreover, you have an option to set a password for safe storage or transfer of your private data. Utilities like Touch VPN may greatly increase your level of security when establishing network connection.
