7-Zip v19.00 / v21.04 Alpha + Portable

7Zip is a software for compressing files in common formats such as zip, rar, etc. and the proprietary format of this software is 7zip. 7Zip software is an open source compressor that you can use to easily decompress all types of compressed formats and also compress your files in different formats and set a password for them. 7Zip program has high speed in compressing files and is able to extract compressed files in Rar format as well.

7-Zip is a file archiver with a high compression ratio. Usually, 7-Zip compresses to 7z format 30-70% better than to zip format. High compression ratio in new 7z format with LZMA compression. Supported formats – Packing / unpacking: 7z, ZIP, GZIP, BZIP2 and TAR. Unpacking only: 7z, ZIP, RAR, GZIP, GZ, BZIP2, BZ2, TAR, CAB, ISO, ARJ, LZH, LHA, CHM, MSI, WIM, Z, CPIO, RPM, DEB, CPIO, DMG, FAT, HFS, LZMA, NTFS, SPLIT, SWM, TAZ, TBZ, TBZ2, TGZ, TPZ, VHD, XAR, XZ, Z and NSIS. For ZIP and GZIP formats, 7-Zip provides a compression ratio that is 2-10 % better than the ratio provided by PKZip and WinZip. Self-extracting capability for 7z format. Integration with Windows Shell. Powerful File Manager. Localizations for 70 languages.

The main features of 7-Zip:

  • High compression ratio in 7z format with LZMA and LZMA2 compression
  • Supported formats:
    Packing / unpacking: 7z, XZ, BZIP2, GZIP, TAR, ZIP and WIM
    Unpacking only: AR, ARJ, CAB, CHM, CPIO, CramFS, DMG, EXT, FAT, GPT, HFS, IHEX, ISO, LZH, LZMA, MBR, MSI, NSIS, NTFS, QCOW2, RAR, RPM, SquashFS, UDF, UEFI, VDI, VHD, VMDK, WIM, XAR and Z.
  • For ZIP and GZIP formats, 7-Zip provides a compression ratio that is 2-10 % better than the ratio provided by PKZip and WinZip
  • Strong AES-256 encryption in 7z and ZIP formats
  • Self-extracting capability for 7z format
  • Integration with Windows Shell
  • Powerful File Manager
  • Powerful command line version
  • Plugin for FAR Manager
  • Localizations for 87 languages
  • 7-Zip works in Windows 10 / 8 / 7 / Vista / XP / 2012 / 2008 / 2003 / 2000 / NT. There is a port of the command line version to Linux/Unix.

7z has an open architecture, so it can support any new compression method, too. The following methods currently are integrated into 7z:
LZMA – Improved and optimized version of LZ77 algorithm
PPMD – Dmitry Shkarin’s PPMdH with small changes
BCJ – Converter for 32-bit x86 executables
BCJ2 – Converter for 32-bit x86 executables
BZip2 – Standard BWT algorithm
Deflate – Standard LZ77-based algorithm

LZMA is the default and general compression method of 7z format. The main features of LZMA are:
High compression ratio
Variable dictionary size (up to 4 GB)
Compression speed: about 1 MB/s on 2 GHz CPU
Decompression speed: about 10-20 MB/s on 2 GHz CPU
Small memory requirement for decompression (depend from dictionary size)
Small code size for decompression: about 5 KB
Supports multi-threading and P4’s hyper-threading

-------------------------
- 7-Zip now reduces the number of working CPU threads for compression,
  if RAM size is not enough for compression with big LZMA2 dictionary.
- 7-Zip now can create and check "file.sha256" text files that contain the list 
  of file names and SHA-256 checksums in format compatible with sha256sum program.
  7-Zip can work with such checksum files as with archives,
  but these files don't contain	real file data.
  The context menu commands to create and test "sha256" files:
    7-Zip  /  CRC SHA  /  SHA-256 -> file.sha256
    7-Zip  /  CRC SHA  /  Test Archive : Checksum
  The commands for command line version:
    7z a -thash file.sha256 *.txt
    7z t -thash file.sha256
    7z t -thash -shd. file.sha256 
  New -shd{dir_path} switch to set the directory that is used to check files 
  referenced by "file.sha256" file for "Test" operation. 
  If -shd{dir_path} is not specified, 7-Zip uses the directory where "file.sha256" is stored.  
- New -xtd switch to exclude directory items from processing.
