Which of the existing archivers packs files into an archive the fastest?
Compression is not interesting, i.e., it's purely packing. Speed is important!

Best answer
No need to look for exotics and save nanoseconds.
Normal ZIP with a compression rate of 0.
Choose a program to your liking, there are many.

I personally use Total Commander.

So what is the best archiver? What is the program itself? Name, for the wind :)

I don't think there will be any difference at all between the different archivers when there is zero compression. The speed of the disk subsystem, not the archiving algorithm, will make all the difference.
