PeaZip 3.6.1

PeaZip can extract most of archive formats both from Windows and Unix worlds, ranging from mainstream 7Z, RAR, TAR and ZIP to experimental ones like PAQ/LPAQ family, currently the most powerful compressor available.

For archive creation, PeaZip supports a wide range of compression and encryption standards, from fastest to most powerful ones, and allows you to export job definition as scripts to bridge the gap between GUI and console applications, and let the user pick the best of the two worlds.

What's new:


  • Compiled with -O3 optimizations


  • File browser can now rename (Ctrl+R) multiple files at once
  • Fixed: correct handling of maximized window state
  • Fixed: navigating from the treeview updates history
  • Improved sorting, sort function keeps context of previously sorted columns
  • Middle mouse button navigate up one level
  • Various minor fixes and improvements

I just tried this app, its good but lacks the full support of rar files or archives

From WinRAR license (in program's help file): "Neither RAR binary code, WinRAR binary code, UnRAR source or UnRAR binary code may be used or reverse engineered to re-create the RAR compression algorithm, which is proprietary, without written permission of the author."
Simply put, as RAR is a proprietary format the author gave permission to use his extraction code but not the compression code, so only WinRAR will ever be able to create and modify RAR, while many other apps extracts RAR.

i don't understand why the install for this is nearly 7Mb yet a WinRAR install is only 1.4Mb and WinRAR has more features.

@jupe, WinRar is compact in an exemplary way, but it has to be said that WinRar has _not_ more features, in example it supports far less archive types than this program, does not do secure deletion, does not calculate hashes etc.
And WinZip, that supports even less features and file formats than PeaZip or WinRar, has a 10 MB installer...
