Popular free archiver with support for many compression archive formats including RAR, ZIP and 7-Zip


A review of 7-Zip 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.

7-Zip can create 7Z archives and create ZIP files.
