Place77 Editor's Review - 7-ZIP
Create or extract files from archives
This tool is a powerful file archiver that supports various archive formats like XZ, ZIP, RAR, CAB, LZH, ISO, XAR, VHD and many popular ZIP compression methods.
The interface is easy to manage and due to its integrated file manager tool, with the two panels view option, accessing your files and folders is quickly done. The application also includes a 7z archive format with a high compression ratio, developed to support any compression method such as LZMA, PPMD, BZip2 and others.
The compression and decompression operations are very easy to initiate, you only have to right-click the file(s) / folder(s) you want to work with, and then select „Add to archive” or „Extract files”according to your needs. You can extract a whole archive or just a part of it by opening the archive, select the files you want to extract and then right-click to copy them anywhere you want. The app also includes a Benchmark function that allows you to test the performance of your computer.
Bottom line, 7-ZIP is free and very easy to use, it supports numerous archive formats and the speed with which run its specific operations is quite impressive.
