7-zip 4.42

7-Zip is a file archiver with high compression ratio.

The main features of 7-Zip:
  • High compression ratio in new 7z format with LZMA compression
  • Supported formats:
    • Packing / unpacking: 7z, ZIP, GZIP, BZIP2 and TAR
    • Unpacking only: RAR, CAB, ISO, ARJ, LZH, CHM, Z, CPIO, RPM, DEB and NSIS
  • Compression ratio in the new 7z format is 30-50% better than ratio in ZIP format.
  • For ZIP and GZIP formats 7-Zip provides compression ratio that is 2-10% better than ratio provided by PKZip and WinZip
  • Powerful command line version
  • Etc....
On the archive you'll find 7za which the standalone version of 7z (not the plugin-based one). 7za handles less archive formats than 7z, but does not need any others... Theres an Amiga-README file into the archive which you should read before using the program!...

For detailed information about the tool, check out the official website at
