PeaZip is a file compression and decompression tool that helps to reduce the size of large files.

Using the program is a pleasant experience - at the most basic level, add the files you want to compress/decompress using the file explorer on the right and chose the action you want from the main toolbar or by right clicking. The PeaZip interface is fresh and easy-to-use with a few built-in themes to spice things up.

Right-clicking on a file or folder and choosing Add to archive or Browse path with PeaZip will also provide direct access to the program's factions. The compression/decompression process is very quick and smooth, and there are impressive advanced options for users who want to get a little more technical.

Among the best of these advanced PeaZip features are the encryption/password options, compression variables, and the File tools, which allow you to split files, join them and even view the checksum files. PeaZip really impressed us - it's a top-class program that performs at a really high level, and is a worthy rival to apps such as WinZip or 7Zip.

PeaZip is a fantastic program for all your compressing/decompressing needs.

PeaZip supports the following formats

Writes: 7Z, ARC, BZ2, GZ, PAQ/LPAQ, PEA, QUAD/BALZ, TAR, UPX, ZIP
Reads: ACE, ARJ, CAB, CHM, MSI, DOC, XLS, PPT, CPIO, ISO, JAR, EAR, WAR, DEB, PET/PUP, RPM, SLP, LHA/LZH, LZMA, DMG/HFS, NSIS, file Open Office , PAK/PK3/PK4, RAR, SMZIP, U3P
