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. Even more formats are supported through third-party plugins.

7-Zip Portable is a wrapper from PortableApps.com, auto-detecting 32 or 64-bit automatically. Alternatively, X-7zip is also available.

Does anyone know if this will make self-extracting archives, or if there is another freeware program that will? I couldn't find this option in the help search. Thanks.

SECURITY PROBLEM: 18 Beta appears to work under PortableApps. Download 18 Beta from http://www.7-zip.org/. Use 7-Zip or Universal Extractor to extract files to a new folder, replace PortableApps files in App folder with 18 Beta files.

Here's my 7-Zip Portable made with my modified version of the PA.c Launcher:
https://github.com/demondevin/7-ZipPortable

I've added support for shell integration as well as the context menu features. I even added support for file type associations to where you may specify which formats you'd like associated with 7-Zip during runtime. Plus I've added a SendTo shortcut which is available for any file types that aren't associated but are supported for use with 7-Zip.

And yes ..it's still very much portable! Read the ReadMe file on the GitHub project page on how to add associations or how to set the shell extension/context menu features...

Normally you would need to know the password to access a passworded 7z archive or to even look inside one, but by using the 7z file manager you can still add stuff into a passworded archive by just dragging & dropping stuff onto it, for example a blank .txt file, that is the first part, then with the use of a simple Hex editor (HxD) you can break the password "lock" if you know what to look for. What I'm saying is, use 7-Zip for your compression needs, but for encrypting sensitive stuff you plan on uploading onto the web, look elsewhere.

@Special:
What? What are you talking about? What broken, what reported, what plain .txt file? Can you elaborate?

Archive encryption in 7z has been broken since 2009, maybe even longer, its been reported time and time again but the dev stance about this has been that it's not a priority.

All that is required is a plain .txt file to break the view protection of a passworded 7z file. If you need simple single file encryption I would suggest AxCrypt for that.

After trying many similar utilities over the past several years, I finally settled with 7zip. I find 7zip to be the best free utility for maximum data compression and reliable archive encryption.

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".
