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.

"Broken?..."

September 26, 2015  |  By MAFinOKC

2015-09-26 07:43:57  |  By MAFinOKC

 |  Version: PeaZip 64-bit 5.7.2

Pros

Fast, versatile, powerful. Opens .exe installation files such as iTunes6464setup.exe as archives so you can install only the non-bloatware items and leave the rest.

Cons

Now it crashes every time. Running the Compatibility Troubleshooter and setting it to Windows 8 settings did not help.

Summary

Going back to the PKZIP for DOS days, this was my favorite archive utility ever. But it doesn't run in Windows 10, at least not in my particular installation configuration. Very sad.

"Perfect!.."

March 19, 2015  |  By Mart70

2015-03-19 10:46:19  |  By Mart70

 |  Version: PeaZip 64 bit 5.5.3

Pros

it's awesome!..

Cons

I don't know?!.

Summary

I'm not offering a scientific or geeky review here, I recently adopted PeaZip after I had trouble with 7zip and needed a Free and Reliable source to extract .zip and .rar files, nothing more nothing less, I wanted a software that included a nice and functional context menu with no fuss, briefly, something easy to use, and I got all that and more with PeaZip!.. I recommend this software without hesitation, I'm 100% satisfied with it. Cheers...

"Fantastic!!!"

January 27, 2015  |  By flavouride

2015-01-27 12:12:49  |  By flavouride

 |  Version: PeaZip 64 bit 5.5.3

Pros

-beautiful and intuitive GUI
-context menu integration
-support for various popular formats
-never had any problems during years of frequent use

Cons

-slightly out of context but freearc is my favourite format but its development seems to have stalled for quite a while since 0.67 alpha

Summary

IMO choosing amongst WinRAR (shareware), WinZip (shareware), 7-Zip (open-source), PeaZip (open-source) or Gnome File-Roller (open-source) is just down to personal preference. I love PeaZip's GUI and that's it.

"Can't do basic things properly"

July 09, 2014  |  By Superstitious

2014-07-09 21:23:11  |  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

2014-06-15 07:47:34  |  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.

"Does exactly what it says on the tin!"

August 13, 2013  |  By ansuk

2013-08-13 05:53:26  |  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

2013-08-10 15:07:14  |  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.

Pros

- extracts numerous types of compressed files, including RAR, ZIP, 7z & exe

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.
