PeaZip is a free archiver, available as portable and installable software for Windows and Linux.
Extract ACE, ARJ, CAB, DMG, ISO, LHA, RAR, UDF and many more file formats
PeaZip allows to create, convert and extract multiple archives at once, create self-extracting archives, bookmark archives and folders, apply powerful search filters, scan and open files with custom applications, apply strong encryption, split/join files, secure data deletion, calculate checksum and hash…

On networks, the application can be made available to multiple users, either whith a shared configuration or with separate configuration for each user, see “Settings” and “Customization and scripting” in the help file, that also contain useful hints for enhancing PeaZip’s system integration.
You can freely replace backend executables in PeaZip/res directory (any PeaZip release/package) with updated ones (as long as they support the same syntax) or with 64 bit counterpart, if available.
PeaZip portable does not modify the host system: it can be simply extracted in the path you prefer (a writeable path is recommended), even on the network or on removable devices as USB sticks.
To extract ACE files it is needed a separate plugin (due to UNACE freeware but closed source nature) available in Add-ons page.
PeaZip 3.5.1 completes the evolution of the file/archive browser’s UI started in previous releases, and brings various fixes and updates.
Integration of the browser with extraction functions is tight: a dropdown menu on the right of “Extract” button allows to check and set most common extraction options directly from the browser, and to extract the entire archive to most common destinations.
Quick extraction functions are also associated with keyboard shortcuts, “Extract all to…” (Ctrl+E or F12), “Extract all here” (Ctrl+Alt+E), “Extract all to Desktop” (Ctrl+Shift+E), “Extract all to Documents” (Ctrl+Alt+Shift+E).
Ctrl+0 extracts to previous path, Ctrl+1..8 extract to path of bookmark 1..8 (if defined), Ctrl+9 extract to default path (if defined).
Themes can now be distributed as autonomous packages, in Option > Theme it is now possible to download, create and manage custom theme packages.
7z backend was updated to 9.20 stable, as well as 7z sfx modules (Windows); UPX was updated to 3.07.
Pea backend was updated to 0.33 version, featuring a look and feel better integrated with the rest of the application.
A total of 126 file extensions are supported.
