Hi,

What is the difference between 'Archivers' and 'Data compression'
If I found this:
Compression is used to make something smaller. Archiving is used for long term storage of something that's not often used anymore

However, I really found that there wikipedia.org classified two two categories:
'Data compression', I don't any examples for them
'Archivers', such as ' as WinZip, WinRAR and 7-zip'

Thus, I am confused with these two terms

'Data compression' must not be mistaken with 'Arachivers', although multifunction software (such as those included below) may fit into all these categories.

' as WinZip, WinRAR and 7-zip'
