Review: PeaZip Portable (64-Bit) packs power in a portable package

Work with compressed files at any time and from anywhere with PeaZip Portable (64-Bit) file archiver.

PeaZip Portable (64-Bit) presents all the power and speed of most compression software in a neat, tidy package. It's one of the few downloads of its kind that is a downright pleasure to look at. The fact that you can stick it on a USB drive and take it with you just makes it even better.

The app comes as an executable file, so some antivirus software might flag it. Rest assured, it's clean and free of any unwanted extras. However, it is a little big for portable software, checking in at just under 10MB. Once you see the app's stylish layout, you'll understand. It's easily the best-looking archive software you can find on the market. Its performance is almost as good, but it falters at doing really advanced compression. You won't notice unless you need your files to be really tiny, though. No matter what it's compressing, it does it very quickly. It even adds a secure delete function that is safer than dragging and dropping files to the Recycle Bin. Any action you perform in PeaZip Portable (64-Bit) brings up a log that lets you see all sorts of details about what you just did.

The only thing more convenient than a traditional compression app is a portable one. The real wonder is how PeaZip Portable (64-Bit) manages to cram so many useful features into such a small package. If you work on multiple computers, stick this download on your keychain thumb drive. As good as it is, you might want to replace your PC's current compression software with it, as well.
