PeaZipOpen Source file and archive manager
PeaZip can extract most of archive formats both from Windows and Unix worlds, ranging from mainstream formats as 7Z, RAR, TAR and ZIP to experimental ones like PAQ/LPAQ family, currently the most powerful compressor available.
PeaZip supports creating archives with a wide range of compression and encryption standards, and allows to export job definition as scripts to bridge the gap between GUI and console applications, and let the user pick the best of the two worlds.
PeaZip is a reliable solution for most of the archive types you may met, and will help you in finding the right tool for a wide range of specific needs if you are searching for speed, or maximum compression, or strong encryption.
You can use PeaZip on all Windows version and on Linux (PeaZip is a desktop neutral application) with the same features and look and feel; moreover, for both platforms, PeaZip is also available as standalone, portable application not needing installation.
You can bring PeaZip with you and rely on it on multiple platforms.
PeaZip has secure deletion feature, it can verify file checksum and hash, and it supports multiple strong encryption standards, optionally using two factor authentication (password and keyfile) for increased security:
- 7Z's AES256 encryption
- ZIP WinZip's AE encryption based on AES256 (and ZipCrypto for legacy compatibility); can decrypt PKZip's AES encryption
- FreeARC's ARC: AES256, Blowfish, Twofish256 and Serpent256 - this format is also capable to generate recovery records to protect data against corruption
- PEA: AES256 EAX authenticated encryption
PeaZip is focused on security and supports multiple strong encryption standards.
