Looking for a no fuss, straightforward compression utility? Then the free Bezipped should suit you.
This easy to use application lets you compress any file quickly and efficiently.
All you need to do is drag and drop the files onto Bezipped's interface, wait for the process to end (you'll be able to follow thanks to process bar at the bottom of the program window) and pick up your compressed file.
Using the preferences, you can choose where compressed files are saved. Bezipped is also Growl enable so it notify you that your compression is finished by way of a little pop up on your screen.
Bezipped is a very basic utility and you won't be able to set the level of compression, nor will you be able to encrypt it or uncompress files.
However it is known to compress slightly better than your Mac normally would.
If you need a very simple tool to compress files in one go, then Bezipped is the drag and drop solution for you.
Bezipped is a file compression and archive utility built on top of the bzip2 command line tool that comes with Mac OS X. In general, Bezipped creates smaller archives than those generated by Finder’s “Compress” functionality.
Couple that with the fact that Bezipped also allows you to create “Windows safe” archives (archives without the dreaded . _ files), and the ability to put archives where you choose, and you’ve got a one stop compression shop.
