Wonderful Utilities - 7zip

In continuing the theme of sharing what applications, themes, gadgets, etc. that I use and love - I present 7zip. 7zip is a FREE, open-source compression program (similar to WinZip).
What will it pack and unpack?
  • 7z
  • ZIP
  • GZIP
  • BZIP2
  • TAR

What will it only unpack?
  • RAR
  • CAB
  • ISO
  • ARJ
  • LZH
  • CHM
  • Z
  • CPIO
  • RPM
  • DEB
  • NSIS

Pretty handy! I've found it to be a direct replacement for the built-in Windows Compressed Files utility, as well as WinZip. Did I mention that it's FREE? But with many open-source programs that are provided free, it is very appreciated that you donate to the group that produces it so that they can continue offering it for free. :) 7zip Homepage
