The best windows archiver between WinRar and 7zipApr 19th, 2013 | By admin | Category: Technology, Windows
Alright so I was looking at Archivers today as I just wanted to make sure that Winrar, my goto archiver was the best one I should be using. I read a lot of reviews and found most people saying that 7zip can compress things smaller without taking a lot longer to do it. So I wanted to find out and post up the results.
The target was 612MB worth of PSD files
- Final File Size: 340MB
- Time to Compress: 8 Minutes
- Final File Size: 370MB
- Time to Compress: 1.5 minutes
So to conclude I am getting a 9% decrease in file size at the expense of a 550% increase in compression time. Worth it on my little machine, I don’t think so
