Hey guys, this time I just want to share with you another cool program and it’s called 7-Zip. The idea behind this is from one of my viewers who had sent me this message. So, it says here from funkyhippie101, suggestion, can you make a video on how to use WinRAR it would help me and others.
Well, I’m not going to show you how to use WinRAR. I’m going to show you how to use 7 zip instead. Well, it’s a file archiver with a high compression ratio and it’s pretty much like WinRAR and WinZIP except at it’s for free. So, it’s an open source software and these are the main features. So, we can pack and unpack formats with 7-Z., ZIP, GZIP, BZIP2 and TAR. And it can also unpack of those with ARJ, CAB, CHM, DEB, ISO bla-bla-bla-bla and RAR files or formats. So, I think that’s pretty cool. And I’m just going to show you how to use 7-Zip. It’s also a cross platform program so it can be used in windows as well as in Linux so that’s pretty cool. So, those files that are supported in Linux can be unzipped or unpacked using 7-Zip.
Anyway, I’m just going to show you how to compress some files so let’s say I have here a Word document, a PowerPoint presentation, a Media file, an Excel file and a text document. So, all you need to do is highlight them all, right click. When you’re using WinZIP and WinRAR it works just as the same. So, all you need to do is highlight your files, right click, go to the option. In this case 7-Zip and then you can add to desktop.7z or add to desktop.zip. You can also use .rar if you're’ using WinRAR but in our case we can only unpack RAR files but we can pack those files in .zip format. So, that’s what I’m going to do. Anyway, the procedure is pretty much the same so here is our package and it’s desktop.zip so we have a zip folder here. And if you want to unzip this, all you need to do is double click and then 7z will automatically open the file for you or open the folder for you and you can access your files. So, let’s say you downloaded .rar or .zipfiles or any other formats that are well mentioned in the site, all you need to do is double click whatever it is that you downloaded and you can access your files that simple.
So anyway, I’m just going to open this one to show you how much space it was saved or how much size it was compressed into. So, as you can see here, the sample.doc is 10KB, the PowerPoint is 12KB,the sample Excel file is 11KB so all in all we have here roughly around a 40KB with these files.
Okay. So, we have this folder now and our files are now reduced or compressed and to check it, you right click and go to properties so as you had seen we have almost roughly around 40KB of desk space. So, we had saved it because now it’s roughly well, it’s 5.69KB or 8.0 KB size on desk as compared to 40 plus KB a while go. So, we had compressed this. If you want to send this through mail, you can already do that using this particular format. So, there you go. So, I’m just going to extract this to my desktop to show you guys. So, all you to do is highlight your files, you can also delete if you want to copy, move, add more files to your folder and then of course extract it. So in my case, I’m going to copy it to my desktop, I’m going to name it desk, hit okay and here is our folder. So, if you open this folder, our files are now that accessible. So, there you go. So, that’s just how you can use 7z to unzip or zip your files.
So, there you go. So, that’s 7 zip or 7z and it’s an excellent substitute for WinZIP and WinRAR, the very fact that it’s for free and it can do what those two programs can give you. So, I think it’s pretty cool. And again, thanks to funkyhippie101 for this suggestion, more videos to come. To all my subscribers, I appreciate the sub guys.
