Hi there! Do you mean pen drive as in USB flash disk? So you want to access files from your home computer from the flask drive in your work place? I understand this as, u want the pendrive to be the object to where you can access files from your home computer to your workplace? Well, the simplest thing to do is to save all your files, that you need from your home computer, to a USB/ flash drive/ pendrive, so you can access them in your work place. But if you heard about Apples new iCloud, you would be surprised to find out that any device synced or logged on to your apple account, you can access any files in any devices, anywhere, when and where you want them. So, Hope i helped. Thank you!

An archived file is also called a compressed file. If you have a compressed file on your USB flash drive and wanting to see what it contains, check its extension name to easily determine what program is used to compress it. If the file is in ZIP format (*.zip), it was created using WinZip. If the file is in RAR format (*.rar), the file was compressed using WinRAR.

If the file is in 7z format (*.7z), the file was compressed with 7-Zip. Anyway, you can download 7-Zip File Archiver. It supports Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8.x, and Windows 10 including Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, and Windows Server 2012. This is a free file archiver or file compressor that creates a compressed file with high compression ratio.

Personally, I prefer using 7-Zip than WinZip and WinRAR because number one, it is totally free and two, it offers much better compression ratio compared to the two. Just download and extract your file with 7-Zip. If the archive file is password-protected, you need to supply the correct password to unpack. If you don’t know the password, there’s no way to unpack. 7-Zip supports both RAR and ZIP formats.
