FileZigZag Review

A Review of FileZigZag, a Free File Conversion Service


FileZigZag is a decent free file converter. It's better than a few other online file converters but certainly not as robust as a dedicated file converter program.

The FileZigZag file converter is very easy to use, supports a good number of file formats (especially images), and is faster than some other online file converter services we've tried.

If you like the thought of skipping the download-and-install routine and getting your file conversion done online, give FileZigZag a try.

What We Like

  • Free file conversions.

  • No programs to install — it's 100 percent web based.

  • Very simple to use.

  • Converts a variety of files from one format to another.

  • Supports files up to 180 MB in size (if you make a free account).

What We Don't Like

  • Conversion time was slow but faster than some other online file converters.

  • You have to upload the file to have it converted, and then download it to use it again.

  • Must wait for an email to download the converted file.

Final Thoughts on FileZigZag

FileZigZag is one of the better online file conversion services. All online file converters are incredibly similar to FileZigZag but in several tests, FileZigZag proved to be the faster tool.

It couldn't get much easier to use FileZigZag. Just visit their website (link below), upload the file you want to convert from, choose the format you want to convert your file to, type your email address, and hit the Convert button. Finally, just wait for your email from FileZigZag with a link to your converted file.

FileZigZag is a pretty good choice if you're after an image converter or a document converter.

However, due to the time it takes to both upload and convert a file, FileZigZag isn't our first choice as a video converter or audio converter. Try one of the other programs in those lists instead.
