PeaZip is an open source file and archive manager that it is FREE, secure and flexible. The main feature of PeaZip includes: Create, convert and extract multiple archives at the same time; create self-extracting archives, split/join, secure archive encryption, securely delete sensitive files, protect archives with password and key-files, and more. PeaZip works with the most popular archive formats, take a look:

You can create: ZIP, 7Z, TAR, ARC, BZ2, GS, *PAQ, PEA, QUA/BALZ, UPX, WIM, and XZ. You can extract: ZIP, RAR, CAB, ISO, DMG, ACE, ARJ, LHA, UDF, and many more for a total of 133 types of archive that you can extract.

Using this “ZIP software” to compress/decompress files you need is not complected at all — you can browse right from PeaZip right pane or you can just right-click the archive and choose the PeaZip option. This archive utility has clean, intuitive and easy to use user interface that blends great with Windows; it integrates well in the system’s context menu, which it is also customizable, and drag & drop is supported. It is fast, stable and it has a high-compression ratio — check out the benchmark.

All versions of Windows are supported from Windows 9.x to Windows 7; 64-bit is also supported. And of course Linux is supported as well. You have the choice to either install PeaZip on your system or if you prefer, you can also opt for the portable version that will run right from a folder in your hard drive, USB thumb drive, or network share without modifying anything on your system. The installation of PeaZip is simple, just a few Next, Next, Next and you are in your way. I would recommend you to choose the custom installation option to avoid installing third-party software. To wrap up this review, PeaZip is a great free open source software for Windows, it comes in handy either when you need to compress a single file that you need send over the internet or when you need to archive a bunch of files and folders. The split/join feature will make sure that archiving big files to CD’s, DVD’s or other storage medium is effortless, all while keeping things secure.
