TUGZip is a freeware file archiver for Microsoft Windows. It handles a great variety of archive formats, including some of the commonly used ones like zip, rar, gzip, bzip2, sqx and 7z.[1] It can also view disk image files like BIN, C2D, IMG, ISO and NRG.[2] TugZip repairs corrupted ZIP archives and can encrypt files with 6 different algorithms.[3]

Since the release of TUGZip, development has been suspended due to lack of time from Kindahl's side.[4]
