7-Zip For Windows (32/64 bit)
There was a time when computer applications were few and a specific tool was used for each task one wanted to perform, such as image viewing, archiving files or converting videos. Nowadays, however, the market has a lot more alternatives for each area, and when it comes to archives, 7-Zip is definitely an app worth taking into consideration.
Installing it is a simple procedure and it all takes only a few seconds since you have to deal with such a light package. The interface is the same as the ones we’ve seen in other compression tools, but 7-Zip also includes a powerful file manager, so browsing the files stored in archives is really simple.
The tool supports most archive formats out there, including RAR, ZIP, TAR, GZ, LZH, LZA, ARJ and ISO, but it also comes with its very own extension, namely 7z.
You will be amazed by how fast 7Zip compresses and decompresses files and the fact that it automatically places a bunch of options in the Windows context menu makes the whole thing a lot easier, while also saving a lot of time when it comes to managing archives. Those who do not like to have a cluttered Windows context menu can easily remove the 7-zip related items whenever they please.
As expected, compression is a smooth operation and in case you really want to save some space on your hard drives, 7-Zip might come in very handy. Just right click the files you want to compress, select the function you need and you’re ready to go.
The default 7z format is better (compression rate wise) than the standard ZIP format and goes head to head with RAR format, with the mention that 7z is an open source format.DOWNLOAD NOWTechnical information
