PeaZip

CNET Editors' review

Novice-friendly but with features for the expert and free archiving tools rarely cover all those bases, but PeaZip hits a home run.

Operating PeaZip is as easy as dragging files. Drop a ZIP file on the interface and PeaZip goes into decompression mode. Drop a regular file and it opens the archiving screen. Well-labeled buttons and simple functions make both processes quick and painless. Adding files and folders is also quickly accomplished using function buttons and traditional file browse tools.

Novice users will be able to use default settings to create well-made archives. Experienced users will like the easily set options. Each well-designed interface includes option tabs that contain simple pull-downs, radio buttons, and text boxes to set compression levels, methods, dictionaries, and even encryption. Most users will find this app one of the most simple to set exactly to their preferences.

Anyone looking for a small and useful archiving tool should give PeaZip a test. Most won't continue their search.

    "Look no further"

    April 9, 2010  |   By rikward

    Version: PeaZip 3.0

    Pros

    - Clean, fresh easy to use interface
    - Comprehensive enough for advanced users but simple enough to use for absolute beginners.
    - Multiple compression file extensions recognised
    - other benefits included
    - Free and no annoying adverts or pop-ups

    Cons

    Nothing to report

    Summary

    Having been a fan of WinRar for many ears I had found that it was not quite the complete utility tool I was now after. Having browsed Cnet I came across PeaZip. Installation is easy and fast, the user interface is refreshingly easy to use and it's feature rich. I am also impressed with the archive function to select how big your compressed files can be and will then create new files accordingly (options include 600meg, 750meg, 4GB, one complete file etc). This I found particularly useful as I now use 4GB feature to backup my 90 gig music collection, as backing up in one state kept failing due to a "lack of disk space" (explain that one please when I use 1TB external hard drive!). The backup files can be easily looked at and are not automatically added to any media libraries.

    This is a truly great product and would have certainly warranted 4 stars if you had to pay for this product. But is free... and that gets 5 stars from me.

    "I've tried many but this is the Archive tool I keep!"

    April 3, 2010  |   By Classic 1957

    Version: PeaZip 3.0

    Pros

    This archive tool does it all. Customize the Pea Zip context menu with a plethora of options for both archiving and extracting files. It works fast and handles every type of archive file I have ever run into!

    Cons

    None that I've found! It's fast, stable and robust.

    Summary

    This is the only archive tool you will ever need! Best of all it's FREE!

    "Spectacular Software!"

    April 2, 2010  |   By apakser

    Version: PeaZip 3.0

    Pros

    PeaZip integrates with windows very well, can be ran as a portable program, and can handle many different formats. But best of all is that it gives its user the option of what priority to run at on the process screen.

    Cons

    I have been since it came out and I have not found any!

    Summary

    Best compression/decompression program I've ever used and its FREE!

    "Nice interface,free,no annoy about buying or update"

    March 3, 2010  |   By imaddhatter

    Version: PeaZip 3.0

    Pros

    Very nice,boots up very quickly once you need it,works great under Windows 7. Showing paths and easy to make archives with ease.

    Cons

    Absolutely nothing!!! Best app for new users and a must for new computers.

    Summary

    This instantly replaced WinRAR for me. I hated that every time I used WinRAR,it comes up with the annoying windows that tells you have used up your 40days blah blah blah. Totally rec-commanded this!

    Updated on Mar 3, 2010

    Also,the interface is very clean,smooth and very nice to look at. Unlike other RAR archive programs are very old looking like they are still using Windows 98 interface.

    "Easy to use. Even for a newbies."

    February 20, 2010  |   By Deathswalk

    Version: PeaZip 3.0

    Pros

    Comes with a lot of tools the are for new and expert people. Best of all it is free to use. You can extract any file that is in a compressed state. You can split a file to make it more portable.

    Cons

    Don't got any cons.

    Summary

    Decompressing a file is as simple as dropping it onto the Peazip shortcut. Splitting a file has never been easier and more simple. Just select how big you want it to be then split it. You can make a zipped file by simply dragging a file on to the program.
