File Extension ICE Description:

The ICE file extension was developed for archiving and compressing files in ICEOWS, or Interface de Compression Ergonomique pour Windows. This is a Polish program for file compression, and is formerly known as ArjFolder. Compressed or extracted archive files in ICEOWS are saved in the ICE file extension.

The file compression software is able to test, extract, read comments, and view properties of files that are saved in ARJ, ZIP, GunZIP, Microsoft CAB, ACE, RAR, TAR, ACE JAR, EAR, LHA, WAR, IMP, Mac HQX, MIME and Base64 without its external program. The saved archive is in ARJ, ZIP, or in the ICE file extension; stored files in these can be added, updated and deleted inside the archive. ICEOWS implements all these functions in the same interface in Windows Explorer for Windows 95 and later versions. The software also saves these files in the ICE file extension for the excellent reduction of text file size.

ICEOWS is a file archiver that combines multiple files together in an archive file, or in a series of archive files. Files are reduced for easy transport and storage; these are especially useful in transferring large amounts of files over a high latency network like the Internet. Files in the .ice file extension are archived and packed, and the contents are concentrated sequentially in the archive folder. Files are compressed or shrunk in size temporarily during the archiving process, to have it bundled together so that the group of files can be transferred as one.

The ICEOWS software uses the same Microsoft Windows Explorer Interface in your system, and has a built in compression and decompression system for many compressed files. The application has full drag and drop, and copy/paste functionality. In addition, it can convert your archive files into an archive folder without having to decompress it. It supports multi archive extraction and recursive archive extraction as well.
