ZIP-ADEE-DODA-ZIP-A-DEEDAY

Recommended Posts

Any takes on 7-ZIP as a Zip Compression Utility? I am currently using "JUSTZIPIT" (Any takes on this one..) but the compression is limited to ZIP and doesn't compress to my liking .

Advantages of 7-ZIP are ,it's free  and the compression choices are many and seems to compress better.

I have narrowed my list to either 7-ZIP or POCO ZIP.

7-Zip also has small footprint and uses less resources as POCO ZIP . POCO ZIP on the other hand does have a nice interface.7-ZIP does have an edge on all the others I have tried with compression rates.

 

However , Thanks to everyone that has replied . Winrar was considered but ruled it out because is slightly slower , takes too much resources but the interface was nice looking.

Yep, I agreed with you on another post and even stated reasons as to why it is rather annoying.

i agree...

Can't seem to pull the trigger on Power Archiver because , well , it costs $20.00.

I'm a tight wad when it comes to money . This would be my second choice though.....

Try IZarc: It's free, supports many formats (except it doesn't encode into RAR, nothing but WinRAR does that though...)...all in all a good program:

2 advantages of Wirar are to me , 1.1MB download (small) , Able to compress and uncompress RAR files....Also , interface looks good.

I am stuck with "Just ZipIt" can only zip & unzip zip files using Deflate64 for lrge files and I am currently thinking about "Zip Genius" also free but 5.98MB , bit large for a Compression Program........Bloat...........Thanks for the post though... :)

I used Winrar to shrink an ISO from 550MB to 500MB. 50MB off is a lot when doing a file transfer over a cable network to someone one DSL.

At present I am testing Zip Genius but I will give Winrar a shot.Sounds good from what Tarun says.
