PeaZip is an open-source Windows and Linux utility that allows you to compress, expand, and encrypt archives. The program also doubles as a convenient file manager.

PeaZip can create and expand archives saved in most popular formats, including .PEA, .7Z, .ZIP, .GZIP, .RAR, and .CAB. It can also extract files from a variety of executable files, including .DMG and .APK files.

In addition to its archive creation and expansion features, PeaZip allows you to :

  • Convert archives to different formats
  • Add or delete files from existing archives
  • Create and easily jump to bookmarks within your computer's file system
  • Manage your passwords
  • Locate and delete duplicate files


PeaZip is a versatile file archiver and manager. It allows users to create and expand archives saved in most popular archive formats, and it includes a number of security and file management features to boot. Although PeaZip doesn't quite measure up to paid archiving tools like WinRAR or StuffIt Deluxe, for its price, PeaZip is an excellent utility.
