7Zip is a open source file archive utility for Microsoft Windows. It supports lots of zip file formats such as 7z, ZIP, GZIP, BZIP2, TAR, RAR etc.

You can actually use it in any computer without registering or paying for the utility. You can compress all your files and directories and save space and backup them in some online storage providers or in a optical disc.

Why should I use it when I have WinZIP cracked?

This is obvious question you might get. with open source, you get the real freedom and 7-zip is absolutely free. whereas WinZIP is not a free software and costs € 29.95. They provide trial version to try and use it. Cracking software is illegal and against law. Hence I suggest you to use 7-zip which does the same kind of  functionality as that of WinZIP and its absolutely free.

Do you find this post useful? do you know any other alternative open source utility for archiving other than 7zip? Share your knowledge.
