7-Zip is a handy utility designed to create or to open archives. Usually, archives are used to keep multiple files in a single one, but also to reduce the size by compressing them.

This program has an excellent compression ratio being able to reduce file size better than other similar programs, including commercial ones. The extension 7z or .7z produces great results.

Users can create ZIP, TAR or 7Z (native format for 7-ZIP) archives, choose different compression levels and methods, encrypt archive with a password.
