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:
