7-Zip, the definitive compression suite


  • Multilingual platform.
  • High compression and decompression speeds.
  • Intuitive interface.


  • Not that memorable.

For those who are used to managing large files, you’ll probably jump at the chance to compress them down to take up less space, right? Well 7-Zip is the ideal solution for all users; it’s one of the most effective on the market, offering a quick, powerful, and free experience.

7-Zip, everything you need to compress and decompress

7-Zip is able to complete LZMA  and LZMA2 compressions, working with over 25 types of formats such as 7Z, ZIP, GZIP, TAR, etc. When it comes to managing ZIP, GZIP y 7-ZIP , the software boasts a compression rate of 2-10% more than the competition. And there’s more; 7z y ZIP files have an extremely strong AES-256 encryption, too. 
Moreover, with 7-Zip you’ll have the option to integrate the system with Windows Shell, to manage the program with any version of Microsoft, and to operate the suite compression command line—advanced users only!

Total integration with Windows

One of the main problems with other compression programs is that they can be a little ‘cut off’ from the rest of the operating system. Not with 7-Zip, because it integrates itself fully with Windows in all of its versions. Because of this, it’s possible to compress and decompress with 7-Zip using any program, and through any line of command.
On the whole, it’s a great compression platform that’s ready to work in less than 87 language. Does anything else offer more?
