Editors' review

PeaZIP is a compact utility that you can use to open or create different types of compressed files for various purposes. This program offers a basic yet versatile set of features to enable you to manage your compressed files effectively.

Pros

Password Manager: The Password Manager feature of this program allows you to set a Master Password for all of the files you create through PeaZIP. You can also set individual passwords for editing purposes.

Compression options: Not only does this program give you the ability to open more than 150 file types, it also lets you convert them to other types, and to compress your own files. Some compression format options include 7Z, ARC, BZip2, Self-extracting 7Z, Self-extracting ARC, and many more. You can also select the compression level, create a new archive, or add files to an existing one.

Cons

Operating speed: When it comes to speed, PeaZIP is not quite as quick as other similar programs. This doesn't translate into a major inconvenience, though.

Bottom Line

PeaZIP is a straightforward program to use, and it's completely free. While it might not perform quite at the level of some of the paid products available, it's definitely an option worth checking out.

    "Can't do basic things properly"

    July 09, 2014   |   By Superstitious

    Version: PeaZip (64 bit) 5.3.1

    Pros

    It is free.

    Cons

    I tried to unzip 54 zip files by right-clicking and choosing extract to folder, most of which were only 1-3K large, and Windows ran out of RAM, tried to increase the swap file, and PeaZip threw up a ton of error messages saying it was out of memory. What kind of unzipper is too stupid to unzip the files one at a time?

    1. Create the new folder
    2. Unzip file #1.
    3. Unzip file #2.
    4. Etc.

    Instead, it looks like it's launching a copy of itself for each file and trying to have all the copies running before it starts to unzip anything! What the heck?

    Summary

    It may have OpenCandy. I found it with Malwarebytes on machines I installed PeaZip on.

    "Great but still behind others."

    June 15, 2014   |   By iamnotatroll

    Version: PeaZip (64 bit) 5.3.1

    Pros

    Great UI.
    Frequent updates.
    Many compression and almost all extraction formats.

    Cons

    Slower than 7zip and winrar.
    Compression and extraction progress is not shown properly like winrar.
    Cant extract rar5.

    Summary

    Great app but need many improvement as many users noted. Great UI but change the logo. Make it faster. Has potential to be my main archive app if you fixed above issues.

    None that I'm aware of but I only use it for unzipping files.

    "Does exactly what it says on the tin!"

    August 13, 2013   |   By ansuk

    Version: PeaZip (64 bit) 5.0.1

    Pros

    Works on Windows 8
    Simple installation
    Simple interface
    Works with .zip, .rar, .7z and just about everything else

    Cons

    Packaged with other rubbish such as Amazon toolbar etc but you have to understand that they have to make some money from somewhere and including third party software does that. You have the option to NOT install these things though!

    Summary

    Does exactly as advertised and works perfectly on Win8. Very simple and easy to use and even uses nice icons unlike others such as 7zip.
    Don't forget to decline installation of the other bundled rubbish unless you want it!

    "Would not run - unhandled exception errors"

    August 10, 2013   |   By An Old Fart

    Version: PeaZip (64 bit) 5.0.1

    Pros

    None - the software would not run, it only created errors.

    Cons

    I tried to install the 64-bit version (running WIN7ultimate 64bit) - seemed to install fine, but when I ran it I got unhandled exception errors that multiplied every time I tried to close the error window.

    Summary

    I can't rate the performance of this software since I was never able to run it successfully.

    "Works perfectly"

    May 29, 2013   |   By rasheed12824

    Version: PeaZip (64 bit) 4.9.2

    Pros

    - extracts numerous types of compressed files, including RAR, ZIP, 7z & exe
    - super-fast extraction
    - ultra compact compression, esp with the 7z format
    - FREE and open source

    Cons

    Sometimes archives with foreign language filenames may not extract or give an error message. I just rename them in English and they open/extract perfectly.

    "SPAM ALERT 2"

    March 23, 2013   |   By Kazeneko

    Version: PeaZip (64 bit) 4.9

    Pros

    Ummm, no pros at all anymore! >.<
    This used to be a great unzipping app.

    Cons

    Loaded with crap software. And, good luck getting it off of your computer, as it creates literally hundreds of registry keys. Sadly, system restore does not get rid of it, at least under Windows 8.

    To quote an already well written review:
    We just upgraded to the latest version and SURPRISE: The developers have gone over to the dark side. The installer included a search engine called FINDR from conduit.com. and now we have severe problems. We have found every instance of 'conduit' on the hard drive and the registry and it still shows up.
    If you google 'how to remove conduit from your computer', you will get hundreds of hits.

    Summary

    Avoid this software at all costs! You will likely need to wipe your hard drive to get rid of it, unless some nice programmer takes the time to write a remover app.

    I'm personally going to contact CNET and Sourceforge to try and get this removed or at least listed as it should be, garbage filled software!

    As for now, thankfully, the excellent 7-zip does not contain any garbage within it's installer.

    "SPAM<---ALERT"

    March 08, 2013   |   By Data_Dude2

    Version: PeaZip (64 bit) 4.9

    Pros

    We have used this product (32, 64, & standalone) for years in all of our computers and found that the software is #1

    Cons

    We just upgraded to the latest version and SURPRISE: The developers have gone over to the dark side. The installer included a search engine called FINDR from conduit.com. and now we have severe problems. We have found every? instance of 'conduit' on the hard drive and the registry and it still shows up.
    If you google 'how to remove conduit from your computer', you will get hundreds of hits.

    Summary

    We have now removed PeaZip from all of our computers and posted this review on our blog and customer newsletter. We are especially disappointed in CNET & SourceForge for promoting this kind of hoax.
