A very simple archiving application and hash tool for the Universal Windows Platform.

Supported formats for compression:

  • ZIP (Deflate)
  • GZIP
  • TAR (Uncompressed)
  • TAR+GZIP (=Tarball)
  • TAR+BZIP2 (=Tarball)
  • TAR+LZMA (=Tarball)

Supported formats for decompression:

  • ZIP
  • GZIP
  • BZIP2
  • TAR
  • RAR4
  • RAR5

Supported message digest algorithms:

  • MD5
  • SHA1
  • SHA256
  • SHA384
  • SHA512

As of the current state, this application supports encrypted archives of type ZIP and RAR4 (fully encrypted).

This application uses the SharpCompress library and depends on its quality when it comes to reading and writing archives. Unit tests exist to test the used algorithms of this library (see project SimpleZIP_UI_TEST). In addition, starting from version 3.0 the SharpZipLib library is used as a fallback because of some issues I experienced with SharpCompress.

Development requirements

The minimum requirements for this project are currently as follows:

  • Visual Studio 2019
  • Microsoft Windows 1803 (April 2018 Update)

If you are planning to fork this application you may want to change this in the project configuration file.
