7-zip (64-bit Version) | Pcworld

7-Zip doesnt http://7-zipdownload.us always offer a superior compression ratio: When I tested it with a folder full of JPG files (which are already well-compressed), the resulting 7z archive was actually 78KB larger than a ZIP of the same folder produced by Windows Explorer. However, the archive was nearly 34MB in size, so a 78KB difference is negligible. When you first launch 7-Zip, its interface is simple and sparse: Just a list of files, along with six large toolbar buttons and a menu. No Wizards, welcome dialogs or any other pesky interruptions between you and your files. If youd like to give the interface a bit more oomph, hit F9 and 7-Zip will be transformed into a basic dual-pane file manager. You can even save up to ten folders as Favorites if you use it often for traversing your file system. All in all, 7-Zips user interface will probably not blow you away. Its impressive compression ratios, however, just might.
