Ez7z for Mac2.14

20 June 2013

Easy-to-use 7zip archiver.

What is Ez7z for Mac

Ez7z is an easy-to-use archiver that allows users to perform a number of tasks:

  • Expand 7z, bzip2, gz, rar, tar, and zip files.
  • Shrink files into 7z, bzip2, gz, tar, and zip formats.
  • View the contents of an archive without opening it.
  • Delete files from an archive without opening it.
  • Create, verify, and repair par2 files.
  • Process multiple files with ease.

Note: Ez7z is no longer actively developed.

What's new in Ez7z

Version 2.14:

Note (from the developer): Sorry for the abandonment. It's not you, it's me. I couldn't afford to keep my website up so everything (all serial numbers) are gone. I apologize to the people who have paid in the past but I have decided to strip the program of its paid restrictions.

ABANDONWARE. But it still works, as of today anyway. I still find it does some useful unique odds and ends, such as opening .ZAD archives. ALTERNATIVES: - Use Keka! It's a great free compression app that's constantly being updated. - The Unarchiver (the *real* version) is very good, but I find I rarely use it. - Don't bother with 7zX. It's abandonware as well as adware. Let it die. - BetterZip has a friendly trial period. But it costs $25. If you find yourself stuck with an odd archive format for which you can't find a compatible expansion app, you may find there are CLI (Terminal) apps to do just what you need. Many of the are already built into macOS. Others may be part of open source projects. Some may make you pay for a license, such as the RAR compression license.

Be careful. Password protecting something compressed with this app doesn't mean you can use the password and uncompress it with another 7zip program. You are basically trapped into using this. =(

The developer's page is offline... currently replaced by a domain squatter who has taken the domain for it and is trying to sell it for $70. His other domain which the download link goes to is not responding. It's been over 160 days since the developer's account has shown activity on MacUpdate. It may be time to find something else. :-( What a bummer

If you are trying to view an archive and it looks empty but you know there is something in there, toggle the "use unRAR for split archives" box. This will probably be the next thing I fix...

My web site is crashing many times throughout the day lately so I have decided to switch hosting providers. It will take at least 7 days apparently, to transfer to the new host. In the mean time use version 1.641. Until it has been added to MacUpdate I will host it on a site which will expire in 2 days, since I cannot upload it to my own.

You must have all the parts of the archive to be able to do anything useful with it. Once you have all 5, just open the 1st (the 001 file) with Ez7z.

How does this app work? I've downloaded 2 of 5 volumes of a movie from MovieBerry. The MovieBerry site indicates that the content is compressed by 7x archiver. So I downloaded Ez7z in hopes of decompressing the 5 files. When I try to Expand the first file, named "movie_name.part.dvd.7z.001", I receive the following: 7-Zip (A) 9.04 beta Copyright (c) 1999-2009 Igor Pavlov 2009-05-30 p7zip Version 9.04 (locale=utf8,Utf16=on,HugeFiles=on,2 CPUs) Processing archive: /Users/Username/Downloads/movie_name.part.dvd.7z.001 Error: E_FAIL Also, if/when I finally get past the E_FAIL message, any suggestions about how I put the 5 files together to make a singe movie? Any and all help will be greatly appreciated!

This version seems like a nice app, but instead of having a text field where we can drag and drop a file AND can enter the file path (a.k.a. location) of a file to compress -- which is a time consuming way to do it, it would be better to have a text field where we can drag and drop a file and a BUTTON that would bring up an open dialog to find the file to compress, OR ALL 3. Otherwise, I like it and look forward to using it.

The update function doesn't appear to work in .65 and the dialog displayed when you can't connect says "you're internet is down" when it should be "your internet is down." I suppose I could have sent this via e-mail to check if my internet was down, though. ;) Beyond that, I'm pretty happy with the application. I agree with the previous comment of writing the last used compression to the plist, and making it default to the same folder that the files/folder the user is trying to 7zip is in. Another suggestion would be to make the file name blank by default or make it the folder being 7zipped. Anyway, thanks for the great app!

EZ 7z is a great 7zip tool. It would be nice if it would automatically save the 7zip archive (next to the file which you want to compress or to a standard location which the user can choose eg Desktop). It would also be nice if it would remember the compression level which you used. :-)

It decompressed everything into one directory. It did not create subdirectories. (the x option preserves directory structures the e option does not on the CL) Other than that it was nice. I agree with the other poster though. It woudl be nice to edit the default options.

Works fine most of the time. One major setback is that if you try to compress an app it decompiles everything so that the app is useless when you decompress from 7z. Otherwise it works OK I guess.

I tried decompressing a 3.5 GB file to my second partition. Because there wasn't enough space on my startup disk (?), the process was aborted. The only way I found to workaround the problem was to move a thousand or so files across to my second partition as they appeared on my startup disk thereby freeing up space for the next batch. Very irritating.

Regarding the poll on the right, should tar format really be there, since it doesn't compress anything? (It mostly just wraps the files together. That's why the extra step of using GZip compression is often used.)

According to what I've been able to find out, this compression technology is free, open source, and superior to Stuffit for OS X. So, what I don't understand is why it isn't the default archive format for OS X? Then there would be no need for everyone to install Stuffit! (I hate Stuffit!)
