More information

7-Zip supplements the built-in Windows 7 file compression by allowing you to compress multiple files into a single file, password protect compressed files and use other compression formats. Compressing several files into a single file can be particularly useful if you needed to send several files in an email. It can handle a variety of file formats including 7Z, ZIP, RAR and TAR. It also offers AES 256 encryption capabilities.

Compressing Word documents and other Microsoft Office files makes very little difference to file size. Zip files can be opened by most computers.
