PeaZip is a free, open source file and archive manager.
PeaZip is cross platform, available as portable and installable software for 32 and 64 bit Windows (9x, 2000, XP, Vista) and Linux (PeaZip is a desktop neutral application).
* create: 7Z, ARC, BZ2, GZ, PAQ/LPAQ, PEA, QUAD/BALZ, TAR, UPX, ZIP;
* open: ACE, ARJ, CAB, DMG, ISO, LHA, RAR, UDF and many more archive types
The program features an archive browser interface with search and history features for intuitive navigation in archive’s content, and allows to apply fine-grained multiple exclusion and inclusion filter rules to the archive; a flat browsing mode is possible as alternative archive browsing method.
PeaZip allows users to run extracting and archiving operations automatically using command-line generated exporting the job defined in the GUI front-end. It can also create, edit and restore an archive’s layout for speeding up archiving or backup operation’s definition.
Other notable features of the program includes file splitting and joining, secure file deletion, byte-to-byte file comparison, checksum/hash files, system benchmarking, random passwords/keyfiles generation, and integration in the Windows Explorer context menu. In addition, the program’s user interface (including icons and color scheme) can be customized.
PeaZip is available as installable package for Windows and Linux (DEB, RPM and TGZ), and as natively standalone, portable application for both platforms. In the latter form it is available also as PortableApps package (.paf.exe).
Amongst more popular and general-purpose archive formats like 7z, Tar, ZIP etc… PeaZip supports PAQ and LPAQ formats: although usually not recommended for general purpose use (due to high memory usage and low speed) those formats are included for the value as cutting edge compression technology, providing compression ratio amongst the best for most data structures.
