Open Source file compression and encryption software

What is PeaZip free file archiver utility

PeaZip is a free file archiver utility, similar to WinRar, WinZip, and 7-Zip (or File Roller, and Ark on Linux), based on Open Source technologies of 7-Zip / p7zip archiver, Facebook Zstandard compressor, FreeArc, Google Brotli compressor, PAQ family of compressors, PEA (archiving and encryption) project, and other Free Software file compression tools.

What is different in PeaZip?

The project started aiming to provide features often overlooked in applications of the same type.

  • Be CLI-friendly: bridge the gap between GUI and CLI applications to offer the best of the two worlds, blending the archive manager into a scripting engine to automate compression / archiving / backup / extraction... tasks.
From "Console" tab in archiving and extraction screens, the tasks defined in the GUI can be exported as CLI scripts, i.e. for reuse, syntax learning or inspection purpose, of for refining the tasks beyond the capabilities of the GUI.
  • Offer two factor authentication (password + keyfile) for all formats supporting encryption, to increase security against guessing and dictionary based attacks on weak passwords.
  • Provide a GUI for less commonly supported compression formats - which comes from very interesting research threads in compression field, like the very powerful compressor zpaq or very fast ones as brotli, and zstandard - and provide a platform-agnostic GUI for 7z/p7zip on non-Windows systems.
  • Provide multiple file management features each of whom meeting the needs of different use cases, like verification of a wide array of checksum and hash functions, find duplicates, convert archives, search in archives, bookmarks, tabbed browsing, etc.
  • Deploy all the above in a tool which is natively portable, can be used from removable devices or shared on a network / cloud, without installation, and offers the same UX on all operating systems and desktop environments.

Safety of Open Source software

PeaZip is Free Software, employing technologies from state of art 7-Zip, p7zip, Brotli, FreeArc, PAQ, PEA, Zstandard open source file compression and archiving projects.

This software is released under Open Source GNU LGPLv3 copyleft license: the application is free for any use (private and professional).

All PeaZip packages are safe downloads, do not contain advertising or harmful software, and are identified with cryptographically secure SHA256 hash published on official download site.

Advantages of Portable packages

Portable packages, available for Linux, macOS, and Windows operating systems as alternative to installable packages, does not need installation: simply extract and use the application for maximum ease of deployment.

PeaZip free archiver in details

Cross-platform (Linux, macOS, Windows), full-featured but user-friendly alternative to WinRar, WinZip and similar general purpose archive manager applications, open and extract 200+ archive formats: 001, 7Z, ACE (*), ARC, ARJ, BR, BZ2, CAB, DMG, GZ, ISO, LHA, PAQ, PEA, RAR (**), TAR, UDF, WIM, XZ, ZIP, ZIPX, ZST. View full list of supported archive file formats for archiving / compression, and for extraction.

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

This software deploys a powerful and complete file manager for editing, viewing, browsing and searching archive files, featuring a wide set of data security functions: strong encryption (AES, Twofish, Serpent), encrypted password manager, optional two-factor authentication (encryption / decryption with password and keyfile), secure delete, and file hashing tools, easily export tasks defined in the GUI to create command line scripts.

For more information about archive creation and extraction performances compared with other popular file archivers tools, read file compression and decompression PeaZip benchmarks page.

(*) To use the application to open and extract ACE files it is needed to install WinACE's UNACE plugin from PLUGINS page, otherwise the program will lack the (proprietary) component to read .ace format.
(**) RAR files creation with PeaZip is possible if WinRar is installed on the system (autonomous support to rar compression is not possible due to rar licensing limitations). Please note RAR and RAR5 format opening / extraction is supported out of the box: an optional plugin based on official RarLab's unrar code is provided as alternative .rar extraction engine on PLUGINS page, if preferred by user over 7-Zip / p7zip's Open Source unrar implementation.
