Bandizip is an archive tool that supports a customizable interface, the searching of archives by file name, file splitting, password protection, self-extracting archives, and varying levels of compression. It supports the creation and extraction of most common compression formats, as well as modern formats ZIPX and 7Z.

The program's "High Speed Archiving" function will allow you to compress or bypass the files its own algorithm on multimedia files (AVI, WMV, MP3...) or archive files (ZIP, RAR, 7Z...) that won't benefit from additional compression. This can increase archiving speed dramatically. Extract formats supported include 7Z, ZIPX, RAR, ALZ, EGG, TAR, BH, LZH, BZ2, ISO, CAB, WIM, XZ, ARJ, ZIP, Z and more.

  • 6MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 7 Oct 2016
  • Suggested by Andrew Lee

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.

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

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".

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.

Special on 2017-01-23 16:53

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.

Nice and simple GUI! Could use a progress bar, but other than that, I can't say a bad thing about it!

This really is an awesome piece of kit, thank you to the author, Danny.
