Hi Combine,

7-Zip is a file archiver with a high compression ratio. It supports 64-bit Windows.

I had tried 7-zip and I'm not satisfied with its compression. I also tried winrar and winUHA, finding the last one the most succesful in compression capacity; however, I should mention that 7-zip is faster than the others. Nevertheless, than you for your sugestion.

What sort of result are you looking for and what type of source files are you using? I generally find that 7-zip using the 7z method and fast compression results if a very compressed file in a very reasonable amount of time.
