7-Zip Portable (32/64 bit)

7-zip Portable, a file archiver with a high compression ratio!

“These days, many email providers (including Gmail) snoop into any ZIP file you send, and if it contains executable files, simply don’t let you send it. Compress your executables using 7-Zip, and you can email them to anyone you like.” —Erez Zukerman, PCAdvisor.co.uk (26 September 2020)

Portability Notes

  • 7-Zip do not have portable mode. It stores its settings in Windows registry and write help file data to Windows data folders while running.
  • Make sure it exits cleanly before plugging out your thumbdrive.
  • You can help by sending request to the official developer to add “portable mode” to their future release.
