The default for 7-Zip is to make a "solid archive"-The concept that is pretty 
natural to Unix-like OSes (similar to making a tar of files and compressing 
it). It allows for _much_ better compression than a non-solid archive. A 
non-solid archive just compresses each file individually and wraps them up 
into a single file (like what Zip does).
