Dogger,

You can download the "Trial" version and you can use it as long as you want. It will do most of what you need, zip, unzip etc. and like Erstad said.. its free (Unless you want the full deal then its $29)

What exactly can you do with the full version that you can't do with the trial? Or is the biggest benefit that you don't have to put up with that freakin evaluation window when you open the trial version?
