I'm looking for a GUI, free program for Microsoft Windows 7 or 10 that can create separate compressed file archives (e.g., .zip or .7z) for each selected file/directory.

For example, if I select 10 files, then the program should create 10 file archives, each of them corresponding to one file.

It is a program that has GUI, is Open-Source and supports multiple compression formats for both opening and archiving, including the powerful PAQ format. It also has included several other useful tools such as calculating checksums, merging and splitting files, securely deleting files and more.
