Archive Converter

Archive converter Compressed file formats, also known as archive file formats, are file formats that allow you to store lots of files and directories in one format, and also shrink bigger files into smaller sizes. This is achieved by using compression algorithms to shrink data down into smaller chunks. Most people will have used the ZIP file format which is one of the most popular compression file formats, not least because it can be easily used on both Windows, MacOS and Linux. Compressed file formats like ZIP, 7Z and RAR are handy if you need to store or send a large number of files in a single format. They also excel at allowing you to make larger files much smaller by compressing them. Zamzar supports the most popular compressed file formats, allowing you to easily convert back and forth between different formats, which is helpful if you don't have the software installed to open them.
