Software Pick: Peazip!


Super Powered Archiver Utility

The internet is abundant with all sorts of free utilities that are poorly coded and aren't reliable, however I came across this wonderful, feature rich Free Zip Archiver utility. This utility will confidently replace WinZip, WinRar, 7zip and any others.

PeaZip is a free archiver utility, based on solid and proven Open Source technology of 7-Zip and other great Open Source tools for supporting additional file formats and features, in order to provide an all purpose zip utility featuring a powerful unified GUI that, unlike most of other classic file archivers like i.e. WinZip and WinRar, is natively portable and cross-platform, being available for 32 and 64 bit Windows (9x, NT/2K/XP, Vista/7/8/10, ReactOS, Wine), and Linux and BSD x86 and x86-64 (desktop neutral application, supports Gnome, KDE and other desktop environments).
