J7Z Review

Tina de Pierre

An alternative to the 7-Zip file archiver application with support for many archive types including 7Z, RAR and ZIP


A review of J7Z by Tina de Pierre

J7Z is an alternative to popular file archiver programs such as Winzip, Winrar, WinACE, etc. In fact, it was created as an alternative to the front-end of 7-Zip, a freeware program.

The program supports most of what 7-Zip does and can compress and decompress a multitude of different archive files like ZIP, 7Z, RAR, BZip2, ACE, Zip, Tar and others include ISO and CHM. For compression, you can choose between different compression methods such ultra compression or simply no compression.

The program includes many different features that are also available in commercial and freeware alternatives like creating self-executing archivers, header encryption and the creation of password-protected archives.

Overall, J7Z performs alright but is still a work-in-progress that really doesn't compare that well to its big brother 7-Zip. Still, J7Z is an acceptable but bare-bones alternative that can be used in some circumstances.

J7Z features and highlights:
  • Update an existing archive quickly
  • Backup a folder to a storage location
  • Create or extract a protected archive
  • Increase efficiency by using archiving profiles

J7Z is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from file archivers without restrictions. J7Z 1.4.0 is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).

Filed under:


  • J7Z Download
  • Freeware File Archivers
  • Open source and GPL software

Compatibility with this software may vary, but will generally run fine under Microsoft Windows 10, 8, 8.1, 7, Vista and XP on either a 32-bit or 64-bit setup. A separate x64 version may be available from Xavion.
