7-Zip Portable Download – Free File Archiver / Extractor

Valid until 31 January 2015 (unless noted)
7-Zip is a free file archiver and extractor software, available on portable version. It is an open source software under GNU LGPL license, so you can get 7-Zip free download, use it, and share it to your friends. This software is very useful, with 7-Zip you can reduce file(s) size (compress / make an archive), file(s) will be packed in one archive file with smaller size, so you can free up some space in your hard disk, flash or any media storage. Smaller file also enables you to share it easier and efficient, for example, you can upload Microsoft Word archive file as email attachment, upload movies to the internet, etc. You can also unpack / extract archive files with this software.

There are also some popular software such as WinZip and WinRAR, but they’re commercial software so you have to pay to get them. 7-Zip features abilities to compress files with a high compression ratio, and it allows you to pack / unpack many file formats. I think 7-Zip is a best alternative for free file archiver / unarchiver software.

My friend told me an interesting occurence. Some days ago he downloaded some zip files from the Internet with movie inside and they were damaged. But he entered in the Google and found there - what to do with broken zip files. He was marveled,because it solved his problem for seconds and free of cost as far as he remember. Besides I tried it too and it helped me quite easy and fast in similar situation.
