PeaZip for Windows 64 bit is a free ZIP software optimized for WIN64 systems.
The application is based on powerful and solid Open Source technology of 7-Zip for managing mainstream archive formats, and other great Open Source tools (like Brotli, FreeARC, PAQ, UPX, Zstandard...) for supporting special purpose file formats and features, in order to provide a flexible zip/unzip/unrar utility featuring a comprehensive and user friendly GUI that, unlike most archive managers (i.e. WinZip and WinRar), is natively portable and cross-platform.
Create 7Z, ARC, BR, BZ2, GZ, *PAQ, PEA, QUAD/BALZ, TAR, UPX, WIM, XZ, ZIP, ZST files
Open and extract over 200 archive types: RAR, ACE, ARJ, CAB, DEB, DMG, ISO, LHA, RPM, UDF, ZIPX files and more...
PeaZip is localized in more than 30 languages and it is capable of handling all most popular archive formats, supporting a wide array of advanced file and archive management features (tabbed browsing, search, bookmarks, thumbnail viewer, hashing, find duplicate files, edit files inside archives, convert archives...), especially focused on security (strong cascade encryption, two factor authentication, encrypted password manager, secure deletion...).
With Rar.exe installed on the same machine, PeaZip can create, modify and repair RAR archives.
The distinctive trait of PeaZip is the innovative and easy to use compression/extraction interface, more similar to CD/DVD burners interfaces rather than to a classic file compressor. This design makes extremely simple to check (and update) items set for compression and extraction, integrating a full featured file manager component.
Also, tasks created in the GUI can be easily saved and scheduled as batch scripts, in order to automate backup and restore operations, or for fine tuning, or for learning purpose, bridging the gap between the ease of use of GUI applications and power and flexibility of console.
