What archiving program do you use?
WinZip? WinRar? 7-Zip? other?



I use Powerarchiver 2007. To me it works great and it is very complete

nice topic :lool:

I was just asked by a small office to clean a bit their computers from illegal software, so now I am looking for a free good archiver... Here are few I found 7-zip, izarc, tugzip, peazip. Any comments and/or suggestions would be great :)

7 zip is a good one in terms of compression. haven't tried the rest
also xp offers one intuitive archivers, the first one is the classical zip which can be created using send to. seeing as size doesn't always matter at the present time, more archives are just used to group more files into 1 file, it can be enough.

yes zip is supported by XP quite well, but i would like to give them a little bit stronger tool, just in case, although i am sure they mostly use just zip :lool:
i am more looking for a tool that is simple and stable to use then a good compression format... i would install winrar if it would be free :)

i think i will go with 7-zip or izarc... i like the simple gui of 7-zip, but some things seem almost a bit unfinished. izarc on the other hand seems to be nice and powerful, almost a bit to powerful :lool:

Good choice. After Powerarchiver I think 7 zip is one of the best

yes, that's the problem with 7z.
me, i'll just stick to total commander, makes things a lot easier
