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.

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
