Free File Compression Alternative

Most hard drives and SSDs nowadays have larger storage spaces and are cheaper. This makes most of us think that there is no need for tools like file compression apps. After all, your external storage space can store all documents and media files, no matter how large they are. But, file compressing programs are still very much needed for two important reasons. One, compressed files do not take up a lot of storage space. Two, compressing protects your files through passwords and encryption. Additionally, compressing make it easier and faster to send files using the internet. 7-Zip is a free, open-source file archiving software that lets you compress and decompress files. This utility application offers a high compression ratio and comes with several features that can match the best compression software available today.

    Yes, I can actually.. Quite astonishing, really. An exquisite program for an exquisite piece of machinery, 10 out of 10 would install again. Pros: Easy stuff. Really easy stuff. Cons: Nothing. Nope

    not ready for prime time.. awful software. i had to use it to unzip a file that winrar actually reported as having file paths that were too long. i tried to keep using 7-zip but it is slow, buggy and will try to expand any file even if it can't.

    Sometimes "Free" and also be "Good". Fast download and it worked out of the cloud-box. I was happy with how well it worked considering it's free. A++ Highly Recommended

    Vista Stories: 7-Zip. Compressed files take up less space and therefore they are often found on the Internet as their transmission lasts much shorter than uncompressed files. Are you looking for a completely free tool to help you work with this type of file, 7-Zip could be the right choice. Except that it supports all popular compression formats like ZIP, CAB, RAR, ARJ, GZIP, BZIP2, TAR, CPIO, RPMMore

    7-zip. very good. easy lay-out, perhaps a bit too sober and short for older people. when looking for a file, i would have prefered a menu where i can easily search for my files. now you have to press the up and bottoms every time. ( a tree structure to click would have been more my kind of stuff) Pros: free, easy to use and easy to install. Cons: the browsing into file-system is not like expected
