7zX is a file archiver with high compression ratio. Compression ratio results are very dependent upon the data used for the tests.

Usually 7zX compresses to 7z format 30-70% better than to zip format, and 2-10% better than most of other zip compatible programs.

7zX currently supports tar, zip, gzip, bzip2, UNIX compress, 7z, s7z and various kinds of segmented archives.

It supports Mac resource forks and Spotlight metadata, and can also create Self-Extracting archives.

What's New

Version 1.7.1:
  • The bug that caused 7zX to produce bus errors on certain machines should be now fixed.
  • Software Update should work correctly once again.

Requirements

Mac OS X 10.4 or later (OS X 10.3.9 could also work).

Ocd,
As per the developer's site, the HTTP links for 7zX appear to be down. In the meantime, we have a copy available hosted here on MacUpdate accessible via the 'Download Now' link above.

I apologize for the inconvenience.

Macupdate is sending me to thesneaky.com to play with a torrent?

Does anyone keep track of things here?

7zx is something I really like and I needed to get a new copy. This is what I find? Thanks to those putting up fileserver links.

I am still on a PPC machine so there's only a limited number of apps I can use. My first experience with 7z app was Ez7z (before they went to shareware), but I never figure out how to use 7z compression on Ez7z because I find the UI confusing. Later when 7zX came out, I tried it and I still like it a lot. Now I have been use 7zX for a while, mostly I like the pretty icon and easy to understand UI design, it's very easy to configure the setting and the app is very stable, and I love its price ^^!

What is wrong with the download??? When I click on download the file, it sends me to some random site with a bunch of marketing websites....is 7zx no longer available? and if that's the case what do we use instead?

This is how I found out:

1. Go to this page:
http://sixtyfive.xmghosting.com/products/7zx/

2. Find this link "Download (BitTorrent Magnet Link)"

3. Open Transmission or any BitTorrent client that accept Magnet Link

4. Click "Download (BitTorrent Magnet Link)" and download 7zX

5. You will receive a dmg file in 2 minutes. Enjoy

I used to think this was the bees' knees for 7zip compressing and decompressing, but then I discovered The Unarchiver and Keka. Those two are both also freeware and handle 7zip files well. They're also under current development instead of being frozen two years ago.

Nice, but limited, and try the more modern stuff.

Just used this to successfully unpack an encrypted .zip archive that Mac OS X's built-in unpacker as well as The Unarchiver could not unpack. (This had never happened before). Thanks for making this available!

I created an encrypted archive and sent it to another mac I own . While opening the archive I was presented with the password screen . I clicked cancel and the archive opened . Has any one else come across this & is this something to be concerned about .

I tried this, same thing happened to me. I compressed a PNG with "test" as the password, then tried to open the archive. I clicked "cancel" in the password dialog box, and 7zX's main window noted that the password was wrong, and that the file wouldn't be expanded. The file was expanded anyway, though, and I ended up with the same PNG I compressed. Alright developer, get in here and fix it.

Inserting a wrong password or canceling the operation causes 7zX to generate 0 KB files, and display CRC errors in the main window.

Archive contents are actually ENCRYPTED using AES-256, and cannot be decrypted unless you know the correct key.

I tried to reproduce this. What happened was 7zX appeared to decompress the encrypted file without a password, but the files created were O Kb in one instance, 2 bytes in another instance, and were not the files originally encrypted.

This behavior should be fixed so that the result of pressing the Cancel button is that no files or folders are created.
