7Zip is a good extraction and zipping console. This is the farmost simplest zipper i have seen with a lot of potential.
7zip makes a zip of the format 7z which is totally new .
This also has a password checker to allow your files to be secure with a password.
This allows the self extraction of the files zipped.
7zip is the far-most smallest zipper according to its size.It is just about 780 kb.
7zip allows to view the information inside the zips in all major formats such as the winrar, zip, .7z, arj, zoo, lzma, iso, lha, tar, taz, tbz.To say the list goes on.
It also allows the file to be split into smaller archives for the transfer to other systems or the easy transport of the files.It also help in uniting the files that have been split.This comes with a file manager through which you can view the source files and zip it directly from the manager.This manager acts like a explorer for the zipped files.I think it can beat up win rar in its compression.
It has high compression speed and it can make the file upto 20 % of the actual size(depending on the file size).
It is a free ware so download and use its full potential.
