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

Do we motivation other formats?
There are discharge format from Small FreeArc icon FreeArc , b1 formatting from Small B1 Free Archiver icon B1 Detached Archiver , kz from Small KuaiZip icon KuaiZip , PEA from Small PeaZip icon PeaZip , if thither are sir thomas more goodness 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 file away 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 know early arrange than Zip.
Rar is also an fantabulous initialise ascribable to recuperation records, something Electric discharge seems to be nerve-racking to do in candid author 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.

The User Interface is so atrocious that it gives me goosebumps every fourth dimension I attend it.

Try HaoZip. You habit regret it.


I don't empathise wherefore about hoi polloi fair won't employment winrar...

WinRAR is out-of-date and doesn't financial support all the formats.
Also it gives that annoyance test word of advice message.

There is agency wagerer alternatives.
