7-Zip is 9 , in essence, as probably already clear from the title refers to an archiver and is an alternative solution such giants in the field, as WinZIP and WinRAR. Initially, the program was designed for Windows 7, but supported XP and Vista. And I must say that the application behaves quite correctly.
Main Features Of 7-Zip
The developers of this software before this have focused on the quality of compression. Indeed, in practice the use of this application, this program has a higher compression ratio and supports 256-bit AES-encryption, that certainly is a pretty big plus because more reliably protect data that is archived.
As well as well-known as WinZIP and WinRAR, the program works perfectly fine with archives created in these applications, but only ZIP and RAR, and supports decompression of disk format ISO. Likewise, the program allows you to perform many operations inherent in the above data logger. This should include the file manager, partition backup file, create self-extracting archives, setting different kinds of passwords for access to the files contained in the archive, and so on. D. All of these features are not new, and usually present in practically all programs of this kind . Naturally, the program can be integrated into file managers or managed directly from the command line. Integration into the file manager allows the necessary operations with archiving data, right-click on the shortcut menu.
The application itself supports five basic types of archives. So, if you want to create or unpack, say, archive ARJ, alas, nothing happens. But, nevertheless, for home use and time saving program will come, just what we needed. Anyway, the most commonly used files have a maximum of two or three formats. And with them the application copes without any problems. Especially, the program runs much faster and has a higher degree of data compression.
