PeaZip is a cross-platform graphical application that has been designed to act as an archiving utility based on the 7-Zip open source file archiver. It handles mainstream archive formats and works on Linux and Windows operating systems.

Supports a wide range of archive types

The application supports and allows users to create a wide range of archive types, including 7Z, ARC, BZ2, GZ, *PAQ, PEA, QUAD/BALZ, TAR, UPX, WIM, XZ, and ZIP. Additionally, it can extract over 50 archive types, including ACE, ARJ, CAB, DMG, ISO, LHA, RAR, UDF, ZIPX, and much more.

Under the hood

Under the hood, the application is localized in over 30 languages, and comes with numerous archive management features for creating, extracting, and converting some of the most popular archive formats.

Easy to use GUI

Its easy-to-use GUI (Graphical User Interface) provides users with drag & drop support and context menu integration, strong encryption, duplicate finder, ability to save backup scripts and high speed compression ratios.

Features at a glance

Another interesting feature is the ability to create, convert and extract multiple archives at once, which makes this application a real candidate for the best archiving utility on UNIX/Linux operating systems. Creating self-extracting archives, splitting and joining files, calculating hashes, exporting job definitions as scripts, and finding duplicate files is also possible with this program.

Supports a wide range of encryption technologies

We should also mention the fact that PeaZip features strong encryption with two factor authentication, secure deletion of archives, an encrypted password manager, and decrypts AES encrypted PKZip files. The application supports AES256 encryption for 7-Zip archives, ZipCrypto and WinZip AES256 AE encryption for ZIP archives, FreeARC AES256, Twofish256, Blowfish and Serpent256 encryption for ARC archives, and AES256 EAX authenticated encryption for PEA archives.

Bottom line

All in all, the application proves to be a universal and extremely handy archive manager tool, especially on the Microsoft Windows operating system. On Linux, you should use the default archive manager of your distribution.
