TheFirstPick.com Review:

A long time ago PowerArchiver became more than just an archiver. By bundling many useful tools such as ability to create ISO files, mount virtual drives, burn CD's, DVD's and Blu-ray discs and even letting you connect to FTP with its integrated client it became a must have piece od software. PowerArchiver also fully integrates to Windows 7 and its Windows Scheduler and you can easily schedule your system backups for example pack everything in 7zip format, make log about it and send it to you on your e-mail... Besides extra functions there is no need to stress that basic capabilities are on niche's highest levels - PA supports 20+ compression formats, has full multiprocessor support which gives it outstanding performances. And all of this for only $34.95 for Professional version! TheFirstPick.com with no doubt marks this excellent piece of software with it highest ranking! Recommended!
