Projects / J7Z


J7Z is an alternative 7-Zip GUI. 7-Zip is a high-compression file archiver designed by Igor Pavlov. Use J7Z if you want to: update existing archives quickly; backup multiple folders to a storage location; create or extract protected archives; and lessen effort by using archiving profiles and lists.
