Compressed files help us move data from one place to another a lot easier, making the file size a lot lighter and even giving us the possibility to include a password so that their contents aren't public. The most popular applications of this category are WinRAR, WinZIP and WinACE, but in the last few years other free alternatives like 7-Zip or PeaZip have been able to make space for themselves on the market.

A free alternative to WinRAR and WinZip.

Main features

It's an easy-to-use decompressor, that has an interface that is very similar to that of the rest of the applications of this category, this means, a file explorer very similar to that of Windows from where we can search for the compressed files and view their contents. Other important features are:

  • Possibility to protect files with a password.
  • Integration of the application's features into Windows context menu and conversion tools.
  • Compatible with more than 90 different formats among which we can name: 7Z, 7-Zip SFX, ARJ, BZip2, ISO, JAR, CPIO, DEB, PAQ, PEA, RAR, TAR, Z and ZIP.
