    WinRar. It handles every form of compression and archiving known. Works flawlessly and is well integrated into Windows.

    It is however is slower, compresses less well and you have to pay for it...

    And The Undisputed Winner Is... - Compression Performance: 7-Zip, MagicRAR, WinRAR, WinZip

    Hi All,
    Anyone please recommend a file compressor software please, other than the one that's built in to Windows 10?
    Both excellent IMO. Currently use RAR bec I download, create, and deal with a lot of JPG serial files in CBR, CBZ formats etc. When I have problems with corruption within files I download WinRAR really makes it easy to unpack, find issues, and repack. CBR indicates packed with WinRAR and CBZ with WinZIP. I haven't bothered to check my WinZIP since the WinRAR works so well.
    For standard zipping work I use Directory Opus (from down under) in place of Windows Explorer and it has excellent ZIP abilities built in and handles most compressed files I've run into.
    Basically, you can't really go wrong either way. Cheers.
