ZIPX file format (WinZip)



ZIPX FILE FORMAT

OPEN AND EXTRACT ZIPX FILES

ZIPX FILES, READ MORE

extract .zipx files



ZIPX is a compressed archive format developed by WinZip team, starting from WinZip 12.1 (released as trialware program on 13 September 2008) as alternative to classic PKZip's ZIP format standard.

WinZip's ZIPX standard is based on ZIP specifications with introduction of newer data compression algorithms - LZMA, PPMd and others (superseding classic Deflate, Deflate64, and BZip2 algorithms), employing custom pre-compression filters to improve compression of images and other media data structures - providing high compression ratio (at cost of higher computational cost), comparable with formats like RAR, ACE, and in some cases 7-Zip's 7Z/XZ files.

On data compression benchmark page you can compare how .zpix format fares, in terms of compression ration and compression / extraction computation speed, with mainstream formats such as .7z, .rar, and .zip, testing various software implementations (PeaZip, Winrar, WinZip).

  



  

.ZIPX

WinZip team, 2008

SPEED zip vs zipx

Excellent. Deflate is light and fast for modern hardware, other supported compression algorithms are more resource demanding.







COMPRESSION RATIO rar vs zipx

Deflate is inferior to modern, more powerful (and power demanding) compressors as 7Z or RAR. Modern ZIP software supports additional algorithms to close the gap (BZip2, PPMd, LZMA) but archives may result unreadable for older utilities.

ADVANCED OPTIONS zipx file encryption

Good. Recent format revisions provide efficent encryption standards. Lacks recovery records option available for RAR format.






Open and extract ZIPX files


PeaZip provides read-only support for .zipx files, working as extractor and opener (list, test, search and explore archived files and directories).
The software also supports decryption of password protected zipx archives.

As alternative, 7-Zip (on MS Windows systems) and p7zip (on Linux/BSD), both free and Open Source tools, are recommended for working with zipx file format.

Compress to ZIPX format


Update existing ZIPX archive


PeaZip cannot write to .zipx format, so it cannot be used to create new or update / edit existing archives.

Convert ZIPX files


PeaZip can convert existing ZIPX archives to any another write-supported format, i.e. 7z, arc, tar, zip.

Manage encrypted ZIPX archives


To extract an encrypted .zipx file, enter the password in PeaZip clicking the padlock icon extract encrypted zipx file in the status bar (in the file/archive browser) or below output address field (in extraction or archiving interfaces), or click Tools > Enter password / keyfile in main menu, or press F9 accelerator key.
Since this format is supported read-only, PeaZip cannot create encrypted zipx files.

Encrypted archive content is marked by * sign after file name.

Please note zipx format supports file-level encryption so multiple passwords can be used in the same archive to encrypt different group of files - and consequently in this case different password must be provided to access each part of the archive, changing password entered in PeaZip.


Open ZIPX files

To open a WinZip's zipx file, browse and search content inside the archive:

  • double click the zipx archive, if file extension is associated with the PeaZip (default)
  • if zipx file type is not associated with PeaZip, right-click on the archive and use system context menu "Open as archive" entry, that will attempt to read any user provided file type regardless file associations

Extract ZIPX files

Use one of the procedures described below to decompress .zipx archives

  • Extract ZIPX file from the system
    • Select one or more zipx archives and use context menu entry "Extract..." to display full extraction screen GUI where to set output path, password, and other options

    • Select one or more archives and use context menu entry Extract here or Extract here (to new folder) for quick extraction with no further confirmation

  • ZIPX extraction within PeaZip

    • Extract button shows full featured archive extraction screen providing access to all options (password, set output path, open output path after extraction, keep or delete original archives, etc) and can send to extraction selected items only

    • Extract all to... button activate a simplified dialog asking for output path only

    • Simply drag & drop desired objects from the application to the system

    • Doubleclick on an archived file to open it in preview mode, i.e. to inspect its content before considering the need for real extraction
