PeaZip 6.9.0 – Archive Manager

PeaZip is an archive manager, that allows to apply powerful multiple search filters to archive’s content. Create and extract multiple archives at once. Create self-extracting archives. Export job definition as command line. Save archive’s layouts; bookmark archives and folders. Scan and open with custom apps compressed and uncompressed files etc…

Other features: strong encryption, robust file copy, split/join files (file span), secure data deletion, compare, checksum and hash files, system benchmark, generate random passwords and keyfiles.

PeaZip is an open source file and archive manager: cross platform, available as portable and installable software for 32 and 64 bit Windows and Linux (PeaZip is a desktop neutral application).

This program is freeware, free of charge for any use. It is also available as standalone, portable application not needing installation.

PeaZip supports File Formats:

  • Full support (read and write): 7z, FreeArc’s arc/wrc, sfx (7z and arc), bz2, gz, paq/lpaq/zpaq, pea, quad/balz/bcm, split, tar, upx, wim, zip
  • Read only (browse, extract, test): 7z, apk, bz, bz2, bzip2, tbz2, tbz, gz, gzip, tgz, tpz, tar, zip, zipx, z01, smzip, arj, cab, chm, chi, chq, chw, hxs, hxi, hxr, hxq, hxw, lit, cpio, deb, lzh, lha, rar, r01, 00, rpm, z, taz, tz, iso, jar, ear, war, lha, pet, pup, pak, pk3, pk4, slp, [Content], xpi, wim, u3p, lzma86, lzma, udf, xar, dmg, hfs, part1, split, swm, tpz, kmz, xz, txz, vhd, mslz, apm, mbr, fat, ntfs, exe, dll, sys, msi, msp, ods, ots, odm, oth, oxt, odb, odf, odg, otg, odp, otp, odt, ott, gnm, doc, dot, xls, xlt, ppt, pps, pot, docx, dotx, xlsx, xltx, swf, flv, quad, balz, zpaq, paq8f, paq8jd, paq8l, paq8o, lpaq1, lpaq5, lpaq8, ace, arc, wrc, 001, pea, cbz, cbr, cba, cb7, cbt (and more…)
  • Repair: FreeArc’s arc/wrc

PeaZip can extract most of archive formats both from Windows and Unix worlds. Ranging from mainstream 7Z, RAR, TAR and ZIP to experimental ones like PAQ/LPAQ family, currently the most powerful compressor available. For archive creation, PeaZip suppors a wide range of compression and encryption standard. From fastes to most powerful ones. And allows to export job definition as scripts to bridge the gap between GUI and console applications. Also let the user pick the best of the two worlds.

PeaZip has secure deletion feature, can verify file checksum and hash. Furthermore, it supports multiple strong encryption standards, optionally using two factor authentication (password and keyfile) for increased security.

Supported encryption standards

  • 7Z: 7-Zip AES256 encryption
  • ZIP: WinZip AES256 AE encryption, and ZipCrypto for legacy compatibility; can decrypt PKZip’s AES encryption
  • ARC: FreeARC AES256, Blowfish, Twofish256 and Serpent256
  • PEA: AES256 EAX authenticated encryption

PeaZip is localized in 29 languages. And is capable of handling all most popular archive formats (150+ file types). Also supports a wide array of advanced file and archive management features. Such as search, bookmarks, thumbnail viewer, hashing, find duplicate files, convert archives…. And it is specially focused on security (strong encryption, two factor authentication, encrypted password manager, secure deletion…).

PeaZip ChangeLog:

Updated links of online resources to https form
Various fixes and improvements
Confirmation is now asked before adding, and renaming / moving files inside archives if items with same names already exists *
Files / folders added to existing archive are now added to the directory that is currently being browsed *
“Open as archive” is now the standard action for opening unknown file types with PeaZip, consistently with other file archivers
PeaZip now supports editing files in archives *

Known archive types are automatically asked to be updated when temporary preview files are modified
Auto syncing can be turned off in options General > Auto update modified files in archives
Archives can manually be synced on request from context menu More > Force update modified files in archives
This allows to try to force to sync arbitrary archive types
PeaZip shows estimated remaining time for archive / extract / test operations *

(Windows) improved handling of file extensions association in installation and unistallation procedures

* for archive typse supported trough 7z/p7zip backend

Supported Operating Systems: Windows 2000, XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, 10 (32 and 64 bit), ReactOS, Wine

    WinRAR has generally been the best Archiver. It shines with multi-volumes, recovery records, good speed and fast compression. Jobs can be saved in profiles, which makes it usable for system backup. Besides special backup-programs, Winzip is the competition for that. Widely used, WinRAR has one disadvantage: it's not free. 7-Zip is free and it opens more formats than WinRAR. Its LZMA2 compression (default as of 7-Zip 9.30 alpha) is the best among practical usable Archivers, somewhat better than WinRAR. It's behind WinRAR when it comes to multi-volumes. In 7-Zip these are splits of normal archives and volume parts cannot be extracted separately. Speed depends on settings you choose. Peazip, is a free Graphic User Interface -GUI shell- around command line archivers and compressors. It makes it possible to use experimental compression engines, the ones who are stable enough - open source or free ones. Peazip's own format is forgettable, but it can work under Linux and supports both archivers without- (zpaq) and with usable windows versions (7-Zip, FreeArc). Not always the latest versions.

    I have winrar, 7-zip and peazip installed, I use winrar and 7zip mainly, winrar can extract a lot of different types but can only create .rar files, 7-zip can also extract a few types but can only create 7z files, i use both for extraction. peazip i dont use very much, whilst it has great compression like paq, it does take a lot longer to pack/archive but with usually very little difference in actual filesize.

    srinivasmv419 winrar is probably the most used archiver as rar used to produce smaller files compared with winzip, 7-zip isnt zip format, its a better compression which sometimes/usually produces smaller files, peazip can do both rar and 7-zip but it also has even more higher compression techniques PAQ. I use peazip for decompression files mainly.
