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.

    "Actually quite good"

    May 29, 2014   |   By the_tgp1994

    Version: PeaZip 5.3.1

    Pros

    More frequently updated than 7-Zip, nice interface, limited "gotcha-ware" in the installer

    Cons

    Extraction process is not as detailed as, say, 7-Zip. You don't get any information on how fast it's working, just a tiny progress bar at the bottom of the window.

    Summary

    I'm a big 7-Zip fan (I know I keep going back to it), but it's just disappointing to me how long it has been since the author has released a stable version. I'm willing to put my support behind PeaZip now.
