PeaZip (32bit)5.8.1

PeaZip is an Open Source file and archive manager: flexible, portable, secure, and free as in freedom. PeaZip is a file archiving tool that allows users to compress one or more files into a single archive file and decompress the archive file. PeaZip also has a file manager for organizing and finding files on the computer. 

PeaZip provides fast, high compression ratio multi-format archiving to 7Z, ARC, Brotli, BZ2, GZ, PEA, TAR, WIM, Zstandard and ZIP archives (write supported), and works as opener / extractor tool for 200+ archive types including ACE, ISO, RAR, ZIPX formats. 

PeaZip can extract, create and convert multiple archives at once, create self-extracting archives, split/join, strong encryption, secure deletion, advanced search and compare features. 

PeaZip has a secure deletion function, can verify file checksums and hash values, and supports a variety of strong encryption standards. You can choose to use two-step verification (password and key file) to increase security. 

The program has a powerful unified cross-platform GUI that can provide the same look and feel under all supported operating systems, and is different from most other classic archive managers in that it is inherently portable.

Key Features:

  • Archives opener and extractor
  • Batch creation and extraction of multiple archives at once
  • Convert files, create self-extracting archives
  • Split and join files
  • Secure deletion and find duplicate files
  • Encrypted password manager
