A backup and secure compression utility designed for USB storage.

An interesting new compression application, Ziplock is freeware from Pasquale Frega which compresses and locks files. AES or Advanced Encryption Standard is used to password protects your files and, in the interests of further security, a secure delete feature is included in the utility.

It is a portable application developed in Java and designed for use on USB devices with archive files stored in the same directory as the executable file for easy accessibility for their creation and management. Ziplock is a useful addition to your system due to its simple structure and security features:

  • Easy-to-use secure compression utility
  • Compress and lock files
  • AES encryption
  • Portable - no installation needed
  • Designed and convenient for use on USB devices
  • Cross-platform application

Compress and lock your files with a comprehensive, easy-to-use interface

Nice and quick to download, Ziplock naturally comes in a ZIP file. Unzipped, you need only to click Ziplock.jar file to launch the utility.

The simple to navigate user interface is comprised of eight tabs above the main window - Zip File, Zip Folder, List Dir, List Archive, Unzip Archive, Delete, About, and Exit. There's a Minimize button at the top right beside the Close icon. All actions undertaken are listed in the window. These are self-explanatory, and it should be mentioned that opening the About tab accesses a QR code.

With the exception of the List Dir and About tabs, clicking a tab will open a window for you to select a file. As expected, a drop-down menu is available for drive selection with the contents displayed below and selected file name and type fields at the bottom. To compress and lock a file, open the Zip File tab and select the file, then type a password in the pop-up window.

A right-click context menu gives you quick access to Read - search for output file, Search, Insert Date - inserts the date into the window, Save As and Clear - clears the window.

Ziplock enables you to very easily compress and lock files providing you with convenient portability in a quick and secure compression utility. Since it is coded in Java, the Java Runtime Environment 6 or higher is required.
