Excellent program. I have been using 7-Zip for the last couple of years
& I agree that it has a great compression. The compression is better
than zip, rar & even ace. Thanks for the update, I didn't even know
that there is a new version of this prog so I am downloading it.

I suggest that everyone download 7-Zip from the above site. I have been
using it for years & it is an excellent program.

I also suggest that everyone download Tugzip from
http://www.tugzip.com/ . Tugzip is a freeware archiver which can
compress/decompress 7Z (7-Zip format), Zip, LHA & many other formats.
Tugzip has an archive converter which can convert archives to another
one, such as Zip to 7-Zip, et al.

I have 7-Zip & Tugzip both installed on my comp & I recommend that
everyone download both programs. For example, there are zip/rar files
which are unreadable by 7-Zip but can be read by Tugzip.
