7-Zip is a free and open-source file archiver, a utility used to place groups of files within compressed containers known as "archives". 7-Zip uses its own 7z archive format, but can read and write several other archive formats. The program can be used from a command-line interface as the command p7zip, or through a graphical user interface that also features shell.

7-Zip supports:
  • The 256-bit AES cipher. Encryption can be enabled for both files and the 7z hierarchy. When the hierarchy is encrypted, users are required to supply a password to see the filenames contained within the archive. WinZip-developed Zip file AES encryption standard is also available in 7-Zip to encrypt ZIP archives with AES 256-bit, but it does not offer filename encryption as in 7z archives.
  • Volumes of dynamically variable sizes, allowing use for backups on removable media such as writable CDs and DVDs
  • Usability as a basic orthodox file manager when used in dual panel mode
  • Multiple-core CPU threading
  • Opening EXE files as archives, allowing the decompression of data from inside many "Setup" or "Installer" or "Extract" type programs without having to launch them
  • Unpacking archives with corrupted filenames, renaming the files as required
  • Create self-extracting single-volume archives
  • Command-line interface
  • Graphical user interface. The Windows version comes with its own GUI; however, p7zip uses the GUI of the Unix/Linux Archive Manager.
