    Also the time taken for compression and De-compression is a major factor .... how good is it with that ... also I agree with Bad boy the we need to see which file was compressed ?

    Crap simply crap ..... If someone has the time then do a complete analysis of all these compression utilities against some known file types.

    @ Aakash what file type did you try to compress ?

    Dudes u can compare ".:~Power Archiver~:." with any compressor-WINZIP, WINRAR, KGB Compressor or whatever.
    But You will see the difference.
    And the interface and design of ".:~Power Archiver~:." is better than everyone.
    Try it guys.
    And by the way, I compressed an image file!!!
    Enjoy!!

    wel try KGB man , then you'll see the difference , but compression time also matters that's why WinRAR and 7Zip are the most viable options cos they achieve the maximum compression/performance ratio . i compressed a 4 GB image to 20 MB with KGB but what's the use when it took 2 days to do so .

    Just downloaded and used it.
    My thoughts:
    I Dont think you have met KGB. Let me introduce you;
    This is KGB. Its probably the most powerful archival tool. It can achive insane compression ratios [at the cost of system RAM though]. It can also keep your secrets safe by using advanced encryption techniques. KGB Archiver uses AES-256 encryption to encrypt archives. Its by far the safest crypt. on earth. To top it all its free and released under open source.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Ps: Note: Somebody sells KGB Archiver on page http://www.fairfrugal.com/packer/. please dont buy it from here. its a scam. KGB Archiver is FREE.

    I'll stick with winrar. Its still the best out there.
    Compression ratio depends upon file type. On some files with winrar I compressed a 100MB file to 1.2 Mb.
    Now try compressing an mp3 file?
    File won't compress much.
