System Navigator is actually a file manager with a module for archive creation and extraction. The program has a low speed when is creating or extracting files, but supports a decent range of formats (archiving and extraction). It doesn't have all features of top file compression tools, but provides a detailed help manual.
Is compressing files into archives slower than competitors.
It has a slow extraction speed, below the average.
Is generous at compression formats and is able to create ZIP, 7Z, TAR, GZIP and many other types of archives.
Will recognize and will extract files from all popular archives, although ZIPX format isn't supported.
Right click menu is intuitive and you can choose to include or not subfolders of selected folder, choose a compression level and a compression method, split archive based on a list with already defined sizes and create self extracting archives.
This software includes additional modules such as a FTP client and a disc burner (Blu-ray, DVD/CD).
The interface is overwhelmed with buttons and isn't very intuitive at first use.
System Navigator wants to be a file manager to handle different operations with files, but lacks at easy of use. As file archivator it has a pretty low speed when is archiving or extracting, but it supports a decent number of file extensions, including popular ones.
