Popular free archiver with support for many compression archive formats

A review of SevenZIP by Fernando Ortega

7-Zip (or Seven Zip) is a archiver with a very high compression ratio with support for several other popular formats like RAR, ZIP, CAB and Linux formats like GZIP, BZIP2 and Redhat RPM. 7-Zip can also compress ZIP files up to 10% better than WinZip. With a fully functional user interface, 7-Zip can also be run from the command line with powerful options.

It also contains a file manager, a FAR manager plug-in, support for almost 50 languages and native 7Z support.

Seven Zip is great in that it's a completely free alternative to other archivers like WinRAR and WinZip. Even though it's a powerful program, both its simple side and more advanced side shine through. It's also great for those (like us, here at CC) who move between Linux and Windows.

SevenZIP can create 7Z archives and create ZIP files.

Seven-Zip is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from file archivers without restrictions. Seven-Zip 9.22 is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).
