PeaZip is a free file archive tool and rar extractor for Windows and Linux that handles more than 200 archive types (7z, ace, arc, bz2, cab, gz, iso, paq, pea, rar, tar, wim, zip, zipx…), handles spanned archives (001, r01, z01…) and supports multiple archive encryption standards.

This project aims to provide a cross-platform, portable GUI front end for several open source technologies (7-Zip, FreeArc, PAQ, PEA, UPX), focusing on file and archive management, and security (strong encryption, two-factor authentication, encrypted password manager, secure deletion).

PeaZip 9.0 is officially released, and the updated content of this version is as follows:

rear end:

the code

  • Fix and clean up legacy code
  • Improved progress bar

    • When opening an archive of 250,000 items, memory usage is reduced by 10% and speed is increased by about 10%.
    • Adding files to archive/extracting is about 3x faster, some previous methods had poor performance (like dragging and dropping files to archive).
    • Removed performance bottleneck when selecting large numbers of items

file manager

  • GUI better adapts to size and preference changes
    • Address breadcrumb adapts to the number of items displayed on the application window width for improved usability

    • Added option to limit maximum memory usage during compression
