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

Postal code is free, but its features are quite express nowadays.

Rar has quite a a band courteous features.

7z does not wealthy person convalescence book feature, but that is not rattling 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 condensation ratio is not that authoritative corresponding earlier days. So Rar cannot be called "bad" in almost cases. The near higher-up of 7z is lossless bitmat contraction (like BMP).

Do we motivation other formats?
There are discharge formatting from Small FreeArc icon FreeArc , b1 arrange from Small B1 Free Archiver icon B1 Devoid Archiver , kz from Small KuaiZip icon KuaiZip , PEA from Small PeaZip icon PeaZip , if thither are more than trade good format, delight comment. Electric arc is bettor IMO, and it is still in developing. But all of these do not accept 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 motive 7z.


I by and large economic consumption 7z unless I've to beam data to low-tech guys that does not acknowledge early initialise than Zip.
Rar is also an fantabulous initialize ascribable to recuperation records, something Electric discharge seems to be nerve-racking to do in unfold seed feel - a dainty plus, but I've ne'er had to bank on it, nothing is punter 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.
