Peazip is the cute little freeware archiving tool for your packaging or extracting needs. It comes in pretty small size. The project and thus the application is totally open source. It provides easy to use GUI with 'Drag and Drop' and context menu integration. High speed, compression ratio, stability and security, relying on proven Open Source technologies from 7-Zip, FreeArc, PAQ, UPX and other state of art projects.

What is PeaZip

PeaZip is a free archiver utility, based on solid and proven Open Source technology of 7-Zip and other great Open Source tools (like FreeARC, PAQ, UPX...) for supporting additional file formats and features, in order to provide an all purpose zip utility featuring a powerful unified GUI that, unlike most of other classic file archivers like i.e. WinZip and WinRar, is natively portable and cross-platform, being available for 32 and 64 bit Windows (9x, NT/2K/XP, Vista/7/8, ReactOS, Wine), and Linux and BSD x86 and x86-64 (desktop neutral application, supports Gnome, KDE and other desktop environments).

Repair: FreeArc's arc/wrc

Encrypt:
7Z: 7-Zip AES256 encryption
ZIP: WinZip AES256 AE encryption, and ZipCrypto for legacy compatibility; can decrypt PKZip's AES encryption
ARC: FreeARC AES256, Blowfish, Twofish256 and Serpent256
PEA: AES256 EAX authenticated encryption

PeaZip is localized in 29 languages and is capable of handling all most popular archive formats (150+ file types), supporting a wide array of advanced file and archive management features (search, bookmarks, thumbnail viewer, hashing, find duplicate files, convert archives...), especially focused on security (strong encryption, two factor authentication, encrypted password manager, secure deletion...).
The distinctive trait of PeaZip is the innovative and easy to use compression/extraction interface, more similar to CD burners interfaces rather than to a classic file compressor. This design makes extremely simple to check (and update) items set for compression and extraction, integrating a full featured file manager component.
Also, tasks created in the GUI can be easily saved as batch scripts, in order to automate backup operations, or for fine tuning, or for learning purpose, bridging the gap between the ease of use of GUI applications and power and flexibility of console.
