PeaZip is a software designed to do the task of extracting archive formats from the World of Windows and Unix, beginning from mainstream 7s, RAR, TAR and ZIP to experimental ones such as; PAQ/LPAQ, the most powerful compressor yet. The application possesses a secure deletion figure and is capable of verifying checksum and hash. 

How can PeaZip Help you? 

First, the installation is far from difficult and can be handled by inexperienced PC users, as there are not much customizing to apply while installing. After you have successfully installed this application, you will notice that the user interface is just as easy to navigate. The main menus are displayed neatly on the top panel, also you can see other options to Add files, Convert those files, and Extract files. You can create archives in various formats, as well as converting from one file format to another. 

In order to ensure an increase in security, this software functions with multiple strong encryption authorities, optionally using a two-factor authentication which includes a password and key file. The software has 7S and AES 256 encryption, Zip Win, IP AES encryption based on AES256 (and ZipCrypto for legacy compatibility). It can equally decrypt PKZip AES encryption. PeaZip has FreeARC's ARC: AES256, Blowfish, Twofish 256 and Serpent 256 whose format is capable of regenerating recovery records to protect and secure your data against corruption. 

PeaZip functions alongside a relatively wide range of compression and encryption standards, ranging from the fastest to the most powerful ones. It also enables you to export job definition in form of scripts, so as to bridge the somewhat wide gap between graphical user interface (GUI) and console apps and gives you the opportunity to pick the best out of both worlds. 

Basically, this application gives you a bit more control over your archive formats and is highly recommended because it not only enables you to extract most archive formats but also aids in securing them. This software is completely free of charge and is open to all users.
