Why in the name of Odins beard do they continue to use these incredibly ugly icons, the application will never get anywhere as long as they continue to use them.

You can manually update the icons with the following link, but why do they not just change them??

7z1508-x64.exe
OPEN SOURCE, compared to copyright (foreign, unknown) stuff hidden in newish RAR, etc.
Also available as 32 bit.
Allows compression, decompression of many file types.
Regularly improved, upgraded, with compatibility with many older & freeware versions.
State of the art GUI menu interface, with good folder usage, file usage.
Version inbuilt into my favorite file browser (Servant Salamander) is faster, & almost as tightly compressed.
7-zip is used as a benchmark standard by many reviewing sites.
Benchmarking allows 8-core tests.
Ultra-compilation only allows 2-core, with very small improvement on overall compression.

Its very good but not IMO as good as Winrar, but I don't think anything is - Great for free though!

dhry, refer here for Igor Pavlov's own explanation as to what seems like 7-Zip's odd version numbering: http://sourceforge.net/p...n/45797/thread/e127e39c . This is an old explanation but still holds true.

7-Zip still doesn't support file recovery redundancy data to protect archive files against file damage, nor does 7-Zip support a larger file checksum than 32-bit CRC32.

WinRAR has options for file recovery and 256-bit BLAKE2 file hash.

7z isn't as robust for long-term storage as the better RAR file format.

Free is NOT always better!!

Great for working with APK's... 5*

I don't like rating against my Fav... Winrar.
Which just doesn't cut it with APK's (the way i need).

A good 2015 to All... ^_^

Once upon a time there was Winzip, most if not all on this site used it, then Winzip went a bit of the track and lost its way, 7 -Zip took the baton forward and for free.
Absolutely the best there is, fast, does what it says and delivers on all fronts.
10 Stars
