Zip, 7z, GZip, BZip2, TAR
Archive Name - specify the name of the new archive. The file extension should match the type of archive you are creating (eg. ZIP)
Root Directory - you can optionally set this to a directory so that the included files can be relative to this directory
Working Directory - any temporary files will be placed in this directory
Recurse - specify how it should deal with sub-folders
Password - specify a password to protect the archive. You'll need to supply this password to decrypt the archive
Archive Type - specify the archive type you want to create. It should match the file extension of the archive name.
Solid Mode, SFX, and Multithreaded are modes available if you choose the 7zip format
