7-Zip is a file archiver with the high compression ratio. The program supports 7z, ZIP, CAB, RAR, ARJ, LZH, CHM, GZIP, BZIP2, Z, TAR, CPIO, RPM and DEB formats. Compression ratio in the new 7z format is 30-50% better than ratio in ZIP format.
- 7-Zip could not unpack some RAR archives
- 7-Zip File Manager could work incorrectly for unpacking from solid archives, if archive was open in 7-Zip File Manager. Also 7-Zip File Manager could leave some unpacked files in TEMP folder of Windows
- So look your TEMP folder and remove folders that have "7z" prefix in name

If you do not already have WinRAR or plan to purchase it, then I feel that this application is the best alternative, period.
It has a wide range of support, is quick, capable, has solid encryption and an open architecture.
If you haven't tried it yet, you should. It may just become your go-to compression application.
This particular release (9.28 Alpha) does not appear to have broken anything. I'll post more if I find otherwise.
