  • Released on 7 Oct 2016

7-Zip is an archive manager that can view and create a wide variety of formats. The program includes folder favorites, optional two-pane view, checksum calculator, file split/combine capability, and more. Individual archives can be created with high speed or high compression settings, update options (including update, add/replace, synchronize), split volumes, and more. Archives can be secured with standard zip or more secure AES encryption.

Although the official archiver for the open, high-compression "7z" format, the program also supports the creation of multiple formats including ZIP, XZ, BZIP2, GZIP, TAR, and WIM. It will extract a long list of other formats, among them RAR, CAB, ISO, ARJ, RPM, VHD, VMDK, etc.

br3: Unfortunately that is a limitation of 7-Zip itself. Each time you click extract it defaults to the folder that the archive is within.

br3: You can 'imitate' that you want if you active the 2 panels view, with F9 o View / 2 panels. It's vey useful.

I've used most of the Compression/Decompression programs before but I always come back to 7-Z 4me its just one of the best if not the best overall. Its very nice to have a program that I can depend on to do what's expected every single time. Thanks so much 7-Z maker for the hard work to give us a really great program for "FREE".

YUMI v2.0.2.9 Updated

billon on 4 Oct 2016
  • 1MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 3 Oct 2016
  • Suggested by webfork

YUMI (Your Universal Multiboot Installer) can be used to create a multi-boot USB flash drive containing multiple operating systems, antivirus utilities, disc cloning, diagnostic tools, and more. Aside from a few distributions, all files are stored within the Multiboot folder, making for a nicely organized Multiboot Drive that can still be used for other storage purposes. YUMI uses syslinux to boot extracted distributions stored on the USB device, and reverts to using grub to Boot Multiple ISO files from USB, if necessary.

YUMI works much like Universal USB Installer, except it can be used to install more than one distribution to run from your USB. Distributions can also be uninstalled.

Note: YUMI v2.x can't remove distributions previously installed with Legacy YUMI! Although no longer supported, you can still Download Legacy YUMI.

System Requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10 / Wine
Writes settings to: None
Stealth: ? Yes
License: Freeware/Open Source
How to extract: Download the EXE to a folder of your choice. Launch YUMI-x.x.x.x.exe.

@ User2
Thanks for that...and just in time. You seem to be the only one with that crucial piece of information on the whole web.

Direct linking is nice but that will miss updates. This page seems to list the latest version (1.5.2 at this time):

Since version 3 is AnyBurn as well ISO editor and unarchiver :)

DzejPy on 2016-03-06 12:29

Sorry, the correct version number AnyBurn with the ISO editor is 3.1
Works well. And it's the only free ISO editor (that i know).

turionaltec on 2016-04-13 01:37

Thanks DzejPy. The interface seems clunky, but if it allows modifying bootable ISOs, it could be a winner! I've been looking for a suitable replacement for ImgBurn ever since they added OpenCandy bundleware. This might be it!

There are a lot of great ways to compress files and folders quickly and easily, but most people are only familiar with ZIP. PeaExtractor's broad support means that it frees us up to send the latest and best compression formats without wondering if the recipient will have difficulty opening it.
