Aspose.ZIP for .NET is implemented using managed C# and can be used with any .NET language: C#, VB.NET, F#. It can be integrated with any kind of application, from ASP.NET web applications to forms applications within any OS: Windows/Linux/MacOS.


  • Compress files and folders to standard ZIP format using standard or enhanced Deflate, Bzip2, LZMA, XZ or PPMd compression algorithm.
  • Decompress files and folders
  • Detect archive format basing on its content
  • Password protect ZIP archives with AES or ZipCrypto
  • Apply different protection scheme to each file in an archive
  • Append files to zipped archive
  • Use parallelism to achieve efficient ZIP, Lzip, Xz and Bzip2 compression
  • Pack files and folders to tar or cpio archive and compress it with gzip or bzip2
  • Compose self-extracted and multi-volume archives
  • Compose and extract lzip, z and xz archives
  • Compose 7z archives with LZMA, LZMA2, PPMd or Bzip2 compression and optional encryption
  • Extract simple 7z archives with LZMA, LZMA2, PPMd, BZip2 and Store compression and without encryption

Create ZIP archive from a file

The usage of Aspose.ZIP is simple for common scenarios.

using (var archive = new Archive()) // Instantiate an archive
   archive.CreateEntry("first_entry.dat", "data.bin"); // Add an entry from file
   archive.Save(""); // Save composed archive to file

Extract RAR to a folder

using (var archive = new RarArchive("archive.rar")))

Create 7z archive with LZMA compression and AES Encryption

// Instantiate an archive, providing compression and encryption settings
using (var archive = new SevenZipArchive(new SevenZipEntrySettings(new SevenZipLZMACompressionSettings(), new SevenZipAESEncryptionSettings("p@s$"))))
   archive.CreateEntry("first_entry.dat", "data.bin");
