Garda Posted April 30, 2013 Share Posted April 30, 2013 I have been using 7zip and Winzip recently. Neither however perfectly hits the spot in terms of what I want from a file compression tool. I would like: Something where I can compress/decompress on both Windows and Linux. .zip files are OK for that. Random access. .7z files do not allow this, so if you have a really big archive, it has to look through serially to find the one file you want to extract. LZMA and PPMD. Both Winzip and 7zip support compression and decompression of these. 7zip is no longer being maintained and I'm concerned that all of my .zipx archives will be inaccessible to me one day when I don't have Winzip available to me. Otherwise, the format works great! What tool do you normally use? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
