Gave it a 1 because it wants to install the candy garbage for windows.

Great program & does all you want, maybe bettered by WinRar but for free it's the best. (Beware of the AVG tool-bar on install)

Best file archiver!
Have used this for several years now. Best archiver in my opinion, since it uses components from many other open source projects, e.g. 7-zip and FreeArc. It handles all formats I need, plus the obsolete .RAR format.
There's a "plain" version available for download on sourceforge.net without the bundled crapware.

Yikes. It wants you to support them by installing a shopping toolbar during setup. I didn't care for the context menu options as you have to open the GUI before applying a job. Other than that it's pretty standard.
Reviewing 4.1 (Nov 6, 2011)
Speed greatly improved over previous release, and the new duplicate finder is very useful.
@asaenz I've tried secure delete with a couple of undelete software and all seems working fine, no data was recoverable after secure deletion (W7 64 bit).
