PeaZip Portable is the ideal package if you want to use a file archiver utility without modifying your system, either because you prefer natively portable software as replacement of installable software, or you need to bring it with you on an USB stick, or when you cannot modify the machine you are working on, or if you just want to try itl without installing anything on the system: simply extract and use PeaZip, and simply delete its folder to remove the application.
Extract over 130 archive types: ACE, ARJ, CAB, DMG, ISO, LHA, RAR, UDF, ZIPX and many more...
Unlike most of other classic file archivers like WinZip and WinRar, PeaZip is structured as a frontend for multiple tools. It is based on solid Open Source technology of 7-Zip for handling most common archive types, and other excellent Open Source tools (FreeARC, PAQ, UPX...) for supporting additional file formats and features, providing a natively cross-platform all-purpose portable zip utility with a powerful unified GUI.
PeaZip supports a wide array of advanced file and archive management features (search, bookmarks, thumbnail viewer, hashing, find duplicate files, convert archives...), especially focused on security (strong encryption, two factor authentication, encrypted password manager, secure deletion...).
The distinctive trait of PeaZip is the innovative and easy to use compression/extraction interface, more similar to CD burners interfaces rather than to a classic file compressor. This design makes extremely simple to check (and update) items set for compression and extraction, integrating a full featured file manager component.
Also, tasks created in the GUI can be easily saved as batch scripts, in order to automate backup operations, or for fine tuning, or for learning purpose, bridging the gap between the ease of use of GUI applications and power and flexibility of console.
