A Better Way to Compress Your Files

Zipping files for archive or transport can often be a hit or miss affair. Sometimes you save a great deal of space, and sometimes very little. 7-Zip has set out to improve the way that zip files operate and even to create a better compression format. This self extracting zipper supports a plethora of compression and archiving formats, including ZIP, CAB, RAR, ARJ, LZH, GZIP, BZIP2, Z, TAR, as well as its own 7Z format. Depending on the data, 7-Zip can compress your data 2-10% smaller than Winzip or PKZip can. If you choose to use the 7Z format, expect to see a compression rate 30-70% better than the standard zip format. Available for Windows and Linux platforms, this is a great way to archive your files and save a little space in the process.
