Editor's review

This is a file joiner and splitter program. It also offers steganography capabilities.

NoZip is a file joiner and splitter utility. It also has steganography capabilities. The steganography capability is really very simple minded. This tool creates a LOF or list of files from all the files that are to be combined. An associated LOFi file acts as the index into the LOF. Only when both are available can one find the individual components. A LOFx contains a LOF and a LOFi into a single file. This can help obfuscate files inside a LOF file. Suppose a LOF file named photo.png.lof contains photo.png, sound.wav and movie.avi files. If this were to be renamed photo.png then it is only the photo.png which will open and the other files would be inaccessible. That makes for a simple kind of steganography as the other two cannot be opened nor you would know there are any other files at all inside the container.

Obviously losing the corresponding LOFi file would mean permanent loss of access to the other files. To circumvent such possibilities, you could create a single LOF extended file or LOFx that contains both the LOF and LOFi into one. The NoZip tool can also be used for file splitting operations too. It is compatible with Windows XP, Windows 7 and Windows Vista, Linux (GTK2), Mac OSX 10.6+ and FreeBSD. This has a simple interface and is quite intuitive. Most users would be able to get productive very quickly. The controls are also well laid out. Users will be able to figure out what to do and how to do it. This is a good product and has many useful features. If you have a need, here is a good candidate for trying out.

Publisher's description

NoZip is a file joiner and splitter with steganography capabilities.
Generates from multiple files a single file called List Of Files (LOF).
Each generated LOF file has an associated index file called LOFi.
The LOFi file is needed in order to split the LOF file and extract the initial files.
A LOFx contains a LOF and a LOFi into a single file.
LOF is a file without any extra overhead.
This gives the possibility by renaming any LOF file into the first contained file to act like the first file.
So if you have a LOF [photo.png.lof] containing these files :
By renaming photo.png.lof into photo.png this will act like photo.
The rest files are not visible.
As you can understand NoZip can be used for steganography purposes since you can obscure files within other files.
Only by providing the associated LOFi file you can extract and get the original files.
In our case [photo.png.lof] + [photo.png.lofi].
ATTENTION : If you lose the LOFi you will not be able to extract your files.
NoZip is functional under Windows XP , Windows 7 and Windows Vista.
The NoZip can be ported under Linux (under request).
It is multi language. Right now is translated to English, Greek and Italian.
It comes as installable and portable application.
