7-Zip 16. 03-GPU archiver with high compression ratio

To extract and compress your files , 7-Zip is a good free WinRAR alternative.

The 7-Zip interface is similar to that of its competitors, with a main document manager and a command line to search and select files to extract or compress. The control panel has the essential basics like extract, add plus test, as well as copy, move plus delete functions to manage your documents. 7-Zip extracts and compresses documents as fast as WinZip and WinRAR and manages the main archive formats like ZIP, TAR, RAR and ISO.

The archiving process is how 7-Zip differs most from its rivals. Where WinZip only lets you compress to ZIP and WinRAR in order to RAR or ZIP, 7zip provides you with up to 5 different archive formats to choose from. 7-Zip lets you choose the update mode, depending on whether you want to add plus replace files, refresh the archive or just synchronize files. If you don’t need somebody opening up your archive without your permission, you can set the password to protect your archive.

We particularly liked the split tool as it can cut up your archive into equal parts which suit on a floppy, CD or DVD MOVIE, handy if you need to distribute a particularly large archive. Unfortunately, security is where 7-Zip lags behind its main competitors. There is no option to scan archives meant for viruses and you can’t repair broken or corrupted files.

7-Zip might not be as secure because WinZip or WinRAR but it is definitely more versatile . It works with additional archive formats and offers many helpful tools like update mode or splitting. If you feel too limited by WinZip and if you don’t like WinRAR, we suggest giving 7-Zip a try and taking advantage of all its possibilities.

Infinitely a lot more flexible than its most famous rivals, 7-Zip is a great file compression device.
