The SQX archiver is a high performance file archiver. It was developed because the specifications for most other archivers are not fully available to third parties. Some archiver manufacturers even prohibit the use of their formats in your own applications if you wish to compress files. In the areas of high compression ratios, strong encryption or extra features such as recovery data, no free libraries are available.
