I Agree 7zip has now replaced WinRAR as my primary compressor for the last 5 months and is spot on.

Works like a charm, no doubts. :)

My opinion is that it replaced WinRAR years ago, better compression, faster speed. I once compressed my HL2 Ep1 SAVE folder from 700 Mb to 12 Mb with 7-zip, while WinRAR would shrink it to 40 Mb only.

7-zip forever. :)

I was wondering why you switched.

This answered my question why highwayman switched.
Ima give 7zip a try and wonder since all of compressed files I download are more rar files than 7zip"besides guru3d", if 7zip handles rar formats.

7-zip has a significantly higher compression ratio, especially on raw data. But it does not compress significantly better in all 100% cases, it depends on the type of data.

(e.g. my Portal game SAVE folder)

I tested the ultra compressing and shrunk my Left4dead from about 6gig to 2.5gig, which is handy cos hate reinstalling fresh on steam stuff.

Yep, I did the same with a couple of my steam games too. :)

or if you'd like the best of both worlds for free then use peazip
