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.

"Excellent little program"

May 31, 2012  |  By rogermanawatu

 |  Version: PeaZip 4.5.1


I really liked how easy it was to download and install, and then to work out how to extract zip files. Following that, to create a new zip file was so easy, I was surprised. I had stuggled with another program for hours to do this simple task.


Maybe the name undersells it, what about Superzip or Speedzip Pro!! Anyway I am a simple user, don't need a lot of bells and whistles, just zip the occassional file without stress and confusion. for instance, who knows why they always call a zip file an "archive"??. Just think of it as a zip file that you make and put some place you can find it! So Peazip is the best choice I have found for simple zip handling.


See above for my recommendation and little rave
