What is a .7Z file?

7Z files contain one or more files compressed with 7-Zip compression to reduce their size for transportation or storage purposes. The 7Z format was first introduced in 1999 and grew in popularity as an improvement upon the more common ZIP format. The 7-Zip file archiver is typically used to create 7Z files, but the files may also be created by other compression utilities, such as PeaZip and PowerISO.

You may acquire a 7Z file when downloading content from a website or receiving files from a friend or coworker. Or you might come across a 7Z file on your computer that was used to store important files for backup purposes. Regardless of how you obtain a 7Z archive, File Viewer Plus is a great option for extracting the contents of 7Z archives, even ones that are password-protected.
