Create 7z (7-Zip) Archives Programmatically using C# .NET

In the previous post, I have discussed different ways of creating ZIP archives using C#. The article also covered how to create encrypted and password-protected ZIP archives. Besides ZIP format, there are some other commonly used archive formats such as 7z, tar, RAR, etc. Among these, 7z archive format is based on open-source architecture and it is used to compress files and folders with a high compression ratio. It also supports 256-bit AES encryption and allows encrypting the files’ names as well.
