The Powerful Archive Tool

Selecting a powerful and useful archive tool is our consideration when setting up a working environment, therefore we need to plan properly and select the right tool to save time when sending a large file size via internet or LAN sharing.

There are hundred of tools available in the internet, some are shareware and some are freeware and also some are open source tools. I personally prefer to use a tool call “7-zip” because it so powerful and is an open source tool. There is not much different compare with other commercial tool. The other reason I choose it because it allows me to open the archive file and modify without extracting the file. Below are some features that are specially found in the tool.
1. Compression ratio: The 7z format has high compression ration compare with other archive format.
