An open-source archiver that creates archive files, decompresses and encrypts ZIP, RAR and 7Z files

A review of PeaZip by Fernando Ortega

The days of the late 90s and 2000s are over and paid archiving software is really a thing of the past unless you've become ultra-accustomed to software with older interfaces like WinRAR. And yet, these shareware programs seem to thrive. It's surprising since such flexible and feature-packed freeware programs like PeaZip exist now.

PeaZip is an open-source solution for packing and unpacking Zip files, RAR files, ACE files and much more. It integrates well into Windows Explorer and is pretty fast at what it does. We haven't seen it crash yet and the overall design of PeaZip is just excellent.

Instead of paying for archiving programs, give this open-source freeware a try and think again.

  • Over 150 file types supported
  • Free alternative to commercial packages like WinRAR or WinZip

  • Archive management: extract, create and convert multiple archives at once, create sfx archives, split and merge files, save job definition as script
  • File management: advanced search, navigation and bookmarking features, find duplicate files, calculate checksums and hashes
