7-Zip 16. 04-GPU archiver with higher compression ratio

To extract plus compress your files , 7-Zip is an excellent free WinRAR alternative.

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

The archiving process is where 7-Zip differs most from its competitors. Where WinZip only lets you compress to ZIP and WinRAR to RAR or ZIP, 7zip offers you up to 5 different archive formats to pick from. 7-Zip lets you choose the update setting, depending on whether you want to add and replace files, refresh the store or just synchronize files. If you don’t wish somebody opening up your archive without your permission, you can set the password to protect your archive.

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

7-Zip might not be as secure since WinZip or WinRAR but it is definitely more versatile . It works with more archive formats and offers many useful tools like update mode or even 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 more flexible than its most famous competitors, 7-Zip is a great file compression device.
