PeaZip Portable (64-Bit) presents all the power and speed of most compression software in a neat, tidy package. It's one of the few downloads of its kind that is a downright pleasure to look at. The fact that you can stick it on a USB drive and take it with you just makes it even better.
The app comes as an executable file, so some antivirus software might flag it. Rest assured, it's clean and free of any unwanted extras. However, it is a little big for portable software, checking in at just under 10MB. Once you see the app's stylish layout, you'll understand. It's easily the best-looking archive software you can find on the market. Its performance is almost as good, but it falters at doing really advanced compression. You won't notice unless you need your files to be really tiny, though. No matter what it's compressing, it does it very quickly. It even adds a secure delete function that is safer than dragging and dropping files to the Recycle Bin. Any action you perform in PeaZip Portable (64-Bit) brings up a log that lets you see all sorts of details about what you just did.
The only thing more convenient than a traditional compression app is a portable one. The real wonder is how PeaZip Portable (64-Bit) manages to cram so many useful features into such a small package. If you work on multiple computers, stick this download on your keychain thumb drive. As good as it is, you might want to replace your PC's current compression software with it, as well.
PeaZip Portable is the ideal package when you want to use a free file archiver and compressor utility without modifying your system, either because you prefer native portable software as replacement of installable software, or you need to bring it with you on an USB stick, or when you cannot modify the machine you are working on, or if you just want to try it without installing anything on the system: simply extract and use PeaZip, and simply delete its folder to remove the application. Compress to 7Z, ARC, BZ2, GZ, PAQ, PEA, QUAD/BALZ, TAR, UPX, WIM, XZ, ZIP format. Read (open, view, extract) 200+ archive types: ACE, ARJ, CAB, DMG, ISO, LHA, RAR, UDF, ZIPX.
Unlike most of other classic file archivers like WinZip and WinRar, PeaZip is structured as a frontend for multiple tools. It is based on solid Open Source technology of 7-Zip for handling most common archive types, and other excellent Open Source tools (FreeARC, PAQ, UPX) for supporting additional file formats and features, providing a natively cross-platform all-purpose portable zip utility with a powerful unified GUI. PeaZip supports a wide array of advanced file and archive management features (search, bookmarks, thumbnail viewer, verify hash, find duplicate files, file converter rar to zip), especially focused on security: strong encryption (AES, Serpent, Twofish), two factor authentication, encrypted password manager, secure data delete. The distinctive trait of PeaZip is the innovative and easy to use compression/extraction interface, which makes extremely simple to check and update items set for compression and extraction, integrating a full featured file manager component. Also, zip/unzip/unrar tasks created in the GUI can be easily scheduled saved as batch scripts, in order to automate backup/restore operations, or for fine tuning, or for learning purpose, bridging the gap between the ease of use of GUI applications and power and flexibility of console.
