GeneralWinRar v 7z - and the winner is... Pin

Dash my buttons! I've been using 7z for a long time and I use it for my important end-of-day backups. I recently tried experimenting with WinRar's command line offering, rar.exe. Using the same input folder and with maximum compression rar.exe compressed the input to about 247Mb. I then compared that to 7z's file which I do with normal compression; 7z's file is 78Mb.

I only wanted to look at WinRar because 7z doesn't play nicely if I try and extract multiple archives at the same time. Under some circumstances, 7z locks up if I do. But really, 247Mb v 78Mb is a good endorsement for 7z. I can live with 7z's odd behaviour.

The general caveat applies: you mileage might vary.
If there is one thing more dangerous than getting between a bear and her cubs it's getting between my wife and her chocolate.
