You can even extract 7-Zip without installing it. For help and more info, here is the 7-Zip user's guide. 7-Zip is currently one of the fastest and easiest to use file archives and compressors. 7-Zip can easily handle more than 3.7 billion files. It is extremely resource-efficient and has a compact footprint: the download size for 7-Zip on our website is only around 200 MB, compared to more than 3 GB for other compressors. There are a lot of ways available in today's file compression world, but few are faster than the classic “Zip” file format. 7-Zip has a very low compression ratio and has few known bugs: when opening archives created from 7-Zip, files get renamed in the .7z extension. If anything is wrong on your device and tries to open .7z archives, check carefully the file extension. There may be problems with the 7-Zip application, and you may need to uninstall it. The 7-Zip developer has provided a 7z.dll in the 7-Zip source which you can add to your system's list of Dolls. The 7-Zip app can be run from the System Preferences > Applications > Accessories > 7-Zip.
