Has anyone experience of 7zip.

I have just come across 7zip which I understand is an alternative to win zip but as I understand it it's able to compress files even smaller than win zip.

It is a freeware and available at click here

I'm not up to the technicalities of this and would appreciate any advice on the subject.

its great depending on what u want to use it for- just remember that some files dont compress very well since theyre of a highly compressed form already (eg if you were to 7z loads of mp3s and/or jpeg images). its much better than winzip and winrar if u want to cram as much as possible onto your hd or blank disc- only way to know is to give it a go!
