- a very good and high-quality archiver that surpasses many competitors and therefore more and more users choose it. The concern of the program developer is manifested in the distribution of 7-Zip around the world. You can use 7-Zip on any computer, including computers of commercial organizations. You don't have to register or pay for a 7-Zip archiver.-

Functions and features:
7-Zip compresses files using the LZMA algorithm, which is much more advanced than the WinRAR archiver algorithm. The LZMA data compression algorithm supports multi- and hyper-threading technologies, which also gives the program a plus on platforms with powerful processors in comparison with competitors.
In 7-Zip, it is possible to create archives that are password protected (it will take 40 to 100 years to decrypt a password of 17 characters), encrypt file names and, of course, create self-extracting SFX archives. The encryption uses 256-bit cryptographic algorithm AES, which is one of the best encryption algorithms currently.
First of all, this archiver is valuable with its own 7z format. It is believed that this format has the highest compression ratio and is excellent for archiving large amounts of information (for example, especially large programs or games). The following formats are also supported: ZIP, CAB, RAR, ARJ, GZIP, LZH, CHM, BZIP2, TAR, CPIO, RPM and DEB. It is worth paying attention to frequent situations in which the compression ratio of ZIP and GZIP formats in this program is an order of magnitude higher than that of competitors.
7-Zip is completely free, and since this is an infrequent phenomenon among programs of this kind, this fact is another good argument in its favor.
Archiving/unzipping: 7z, XZ, BZIP2, GZIP, TAR, ZIP and WIM
