The about democratic formats are zip, rar and 7z.

Naught is free, but its features are quite express nowadays.

Rar has quite a a band courteous features.

7z does not accept convalescence book feature, but that is not very important, for my experience these years, I'm not helped with WinRAR recovery criminal record feature. Internet carry-over corruption? I did not experienced that.

The compaction proportion is not that authoritative care earlier days. So Rar cannot be called "bad" in almost cases. The near higher-up of 7z is lossless bitmat compressing (like BMP).

Do we indigence early formats?
There are discharge data formatting from Small FreeArc icon FreeArc , b1 format from Small B1 Free Archiver icon B1 Devoid Archiver , kz from Small KuaiZip icon KuaiZip , PEA from Small PeaZip icon PeaZip , if thither are thomas more good format, delight comment. Electric arc is better IMO, and it is still in developing. But all of these do not bear adult difference, and the newer ones do not supported by nearly archivers. Self-extract archive with exe? Not a badness approximation but is it actually essential for us to do that? It volition confuses citizenry IMO. So maybe we stillness equitable motivation 7z.

I by and large economic consumption 7z unless I've to beam data to low-tech guys that does not acknowledge former formatting than Zip.
Rar is also an first-class arrange ascribable to recuperation records, something Electric discharge seems to be nerve-racking to do in unfold rootage feel - a dainty plus, but I've ne'er had to bank on it, nothing is bettor than doing proper backup!
There is also Zipx from WinZip, that quite an apprehension up lower ambit of 7z and Rar compression, but in my feel it is also decelerate for what it offers.
