PeaZip icon Compress files and folders in order to save precious disk space and take advantage of a lot more integrated tools with the help of this powerful application

For enhanced security measures, most applications and files are distributed in archives to prevent malicious software infiltrations. There is an abundance of utilities that can be used for this task, PeaZip being one of them. It manages to come equipped with a set of tools that offer a lot more than just the possibility to compress files.

Pleasant and intuitive interface

Running the application brings up a modernly designed interface that includes nearly all archiving tools you find in most common dedicated such utilities. The upper toolbar is fitted with intuitive buttons that let you add, extract, convert, test and several other options.

The workspace resembles a file explorer, which cleverly lets you browse through your computer exactly the way you would with the default operating system explorer. Additionally, the application integrates its major features in the context menu for enhanced ease of access.

Configure amount of system resources to use

In terms of functionality, the application brings nothing new to the market. It is able to associate its features with nearly all available archive formats. Compression and extraction speed are moderate, with a slight tendency to eat up a considerable amount of resources. However, you can set priority from the progress window that pops up once the process is put in motion.

A large variety of other integrated tools

Besides basic compression tools, the application features a few specialties. Given the file explorer-like interface workspace, you can change the upper toolbar to a file manager to gain access to dedicated options that let you cut, copy, paste, create new folders, rename or even find duplicate files in the current path. There are more options available, including the possibility to have files open with external applications.

Edit and convert image files

Furthermore, there is also an integrated image viewer, with support for basic editing. It lets you crop selected photos, rotate or fit to a custom resolution, as well as save under a different format like BMP, PNG or JPG.

Create automated scheduled tasks

Amongst other features, you manage to find a Task Scheduler that lets you set up computer specific operations, like running a certain application, by setting advanced parameters. You can make it recurrent, while taking advantage of a guided creation process or dive into an abundance of advanced settings.

To sum it up

All things considered, PeaZip lives up to expectations even though not the most powerful utility of its kind. It lets you take advantage of a handful of features, from simple archiving options to file management and security related settings. It's definitely worth a try if you're looking for an alternative to the existing industry giants.
