PeaZip is an open source file and archive manager. It's freeware and free of charge for any use.
PeaZip can extract most of archive formats both from Windows and Unix worlds, ranging from mainstream 7Z, RAR, TAR and ZIP to experimental ones like PAQ/LPAQ family, currently the most powerful compressor available.
PeaZip has secure deletion feature, can verify file checksum and hash, and 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
For archive creation, PeaZip supports a wide range of compression and encryption standards, from the fastest to the most powerful ones. It also allows you to export job definition as scripts to bridge the gap between GUI and console apps, and lets you pick the best of both worlds.
(Windows) 7z 17.01 beta.
(Windows) zipx 7.15.
Updated GUI and themes.
Can now move and rename objects inside existing archives (7z/p7zip supported formats).
Extraction and Archiving:
Added option to force browsing of archives containing errors (default off).
Added option to show which options are volatile (context dependent) rather than persistent.
Improved archive conversion -
"Change password" switch (default off) asks to provide a new password to be applied to converted archive(s), otherwise current password (if any) will be applied - decompression stage test current password for each input archive, asking new password in case of error.
Improved support for WIM format -
In archiving and extraction interfaces, Advanced tab, were added options to operate including NT security information and NTFS Alternate Data Stream.
File manager shows SHA-1 hash value for items in WIM archives.
Scheduled deletion after archiving/extraction will not be performed if errors are detected.
Privacy directive is available as GUI option -
0 default, no password request.
1 application asks for password when starts, skippable.
2 application asks for password when starts, not skippable (password or keyfile must be provided).
