7-Zip Portable Review

Felix Cheng

Portable version of a very good file archiver supporting many formats including RAR, ZIP and 7-Zip

A review of 7-Zip Portable by Felix Cheng

7-Zip Portable is an excellent freeware file compression/decompression tool which supports most popular file compression formats including ZIP, 7Z, RAR, CAB, ISO and GZIP.

Since this application is portable, it can be used without having to install the program. This can be suitable for usage on various portable mass storage devices like USB thumb drives, external hard drives or even on your phone.

The main interface of 7-Zip Portable is identical to 7-Zip which can be described as easy-to-use and get around in. It's not very different from older legacy programs like WinZip or WinRAR except for the fact that there are no nags screens being a freeware program.

In terms of file support, 7-Zip Portable can handle most of the archives you may come across online. Naturally, it also supports its native format of 7Z. It can decompress more than it can compress, but there aren't any issues creating ZIP or 7Z files which are standard anyways.

Overall, it's good that there's a portable version of this program available as it's definitely one of the best file archivers out there.

7-Zip Portable features and highlights:
  • Compresses 7z, Tar, ZIP
  • Decompresses RAR, CAB, ISO, ARJ, LZH, CHM, Z, CPIO, RPM, DEB, NSIS
  • High compression ratio in new 7z format with LZMA compression
  • For ZIP and GZIP formats 7-Zip provides compression ratio that is 2-10 % better than ratio provided by PKZip and WinZip
  • Self-extracting capability for 7z format
  • Powerful File Manager

7 Zip Portable is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from file archivers without restrictions. 7 Zip Portable 16.04 is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).
