7-Zip is a free software for archiving files, available on an open source licence. It allows you to compress data in 7z, BIZP2, GZIP, XZ and ZIP formats and to create TAR and WIM archives. 7-Zip unpacks formats such as ARJ, CAB, CHM, CPIO, CramFS, DEB, DMG, FAT, HFS, ISO, LZH, LZMA, MBR, MSI, NSIS, NTFS, RAR, RPM, SquashFS, UDF, VHD, XAR and Z. With its help, you can create self-extracting SFX archives which you can open on any Windows computer without the need for installing additional software. It integrates with the system’s shell so it is easily available from Windows’ File Explorer context menu. There is an option to secure 7z files with AES-256 encryption.
