Hi everyone. Searching for the most efficient compression tool out there for FREE? There are thousands of them but the one which performs the best is undoubtedly “7-Zip”. It is 7-Zip because it may look similar to many other compression tools but 7-Zip has 7 compression formats including RAR, ZIP, TAR and 7z, 6 compression levels and 5 compression methods!!! 7-Zip also allows splitting up compressed file into parts of various sizes and data encryption which means that you can password protect the compressed file!!! Various tests were conducted to compare the top compression tools like WinRAR, WinZIP and 7-Zip, all of which declared 7-Zip the winner!!! 7-Zip, though it does not work with amazing speeds, manages to come out on top of all because of the wonderful blend of speed, effectiveness and simplicity.
