PeaZip is a free, freeware archiver, which belongs to the category of both stationary portable (so-called, portable) version that avoids installing it on your hard disk and use any removable media, whether it's, disks, flash memory or removable card. The program is quite large and, to some extent, is quite unusual.

Key Features PeaZip

Start, perhaps, is with the fact that the program has its own archive format, the default, PEA. However, this does not mean that the application can not work with other file formats. Absolutely no problems, this software can create any type of files 7Z, 7Z-sfx, ARC / WRC, BZ2 / TBZ2, custom, GZ / TGZ, PAQ / LPAQ, PEA, QUAD / BALZ, split, TAR, UPX or ZIP. And just as easily, the program opens a pretty impressive amount of files within ACE, ARJ, CAB, CHM, COMPOUND (MSI, DOC, XLS, PPT), CPIO, ISO, Java (JAR, EAR, WAR), Linux (DEB, PET / PUP, RPM, SLP), LHA / LZH, LZMA, Mac (DMG / HFS), NSIS, Open Office files, PAK / PK3 / PK4, RAR, SMZIP, U3P, UDF, WIM, XAR, XPI, Z / TZ. Moreover, the application has the support of the creation of multivolume archives, and allows you to work with multiple files simultaneously. Plus, you can always use for example, the system search the contents of the archive, export jobs from the command line or installing some custom filter on the contents of the archive.

Besides the above described features can be used to install files and folders custom bookmarks. Not quite poorly represented encryption system data. This algorithm AES 256. Another interesting one function, which is a generator of passwords and keys. This function is very useful if you, for example, simply do not want to inventing their own passwords - the program will do everything for you.


It is worth noting that the latest version supports 136 archive formats (recently added format OXT). Also, improved user interface applications and switch between preset settings (peazippreset) for their selective removal. And of course, a few words about the size of the files. Stationary version "weigh" about 5 MB (meaning 32-bit and 64-bit versions) and portable (32 and 64 bit) - around 7 MB. And, in spite of such a small size, the program is quite diverse.

In conclusion, I would like to add that a few uncomfortable it may seem that the proprietary format program files can many applications of this kind and not be recognized, however, nothing prevents you to use export to other formats that can easily be perceived by other archivers. Especially because a lot of the supported formats.
