PeaZip ia a free zip utility providing read / write support for .zip files, working as zip extractor, opener (to list, search and explore archived files and directories), converter from / to Zip format, and archive integrity testing utility to detect data corruption or forging.
ZIP format is the default archive type for PeaZip, which uses optimized 7-Zip / p7Zip Deflate compression implementation to reduce zip file size while keeping compatibility with other zip utilities. The application can also manage password protected, encrypted zip archives (encrypt and decrypt).

Create ZIP files


Create Zip files from the system's file explorer

  • Use context menu PeaZip > Add to archive for archive creation screen, to set compression settings, output destination, set encryption password, and other options

  • Alternatively, use system context menu Add to .ZIP to compress selected items without further interaction

Create Zip files from PeaZip free archiver
  • Select files and folders, and use Add button (or Add entry in context menu) for archive creation screen

  • Drag and drop files / folders from the system to PeaZip; if you are browsing an existing archive you will be asked if to add files to current archive or to create a new one
From main archive creation interface it is possible to apply encryption (recipient will need to enter a password to read and extract the archive), and to split files in order to keep the output size below limits (e.g. max upload or mail attachment size).
'Advanced' tab can fine-tune compression settings: faster or higher compression level, algorithm, solid compression block size, compress open files, create self extracting archive (SFX)...
Read more about how to create archives (zip multiple input files into single archive) or how to compress each file to a separate archive (zip files separately).

Update existing ZIP archives


To update existing archive, easiest way is dragging files/folders to it, which will automatically activate update mode.
To remove (delete) data from the archive, select items and press cancel or 'Delete from archive' button. Deleted items will not be recoverable from recycle bin.

How to convert ZIP files


Convert tool extracts and then re-pack input archive files.
This function makes possible to convert any read-supported archive type (e.g. 7Z, ACE, ARC, CAB, PEA, RAR, TAR, ZIP, ZIPX...), even mixed extensions at once, into any write-supported format (7Z, ARC, PEA, TAR, ZIP...).
Read more about archive file conversion tool

Open ZIP files


Double click to open ZIP file and browse / search its content, if file extension is associated with PeaZip (default).
If zip file type is not associated with PeaZip, right-click on the archive and use system context menu 'Open as archive' entry, that will attempt to read any user provided file type regardless file extension associations.
Read more about how to open and browse zipped archive files.

Extract ZIP files (unzip)


ZIP extraction from the system

  • Select one or more zip archives and use context menu entry 'Extract...' for extraction screen, to set output path, enter password, and other unzip options

  • Select one or more archives and use context menu entry Extract here or Extract here (to new folder) for quick zip file extraction with no further confirmation

UNZIP files within PeaZip free archiver

  • Extract button shows archive extraction screen providing access to all uzip options

  • Extract all to... button for setting zip file extraction output path only

  • Simplest alternative is drag & drop to extract desired objects from the application to the system

To extract a spanned (split) ZIP file, save all the parts in the same directory, then open as usual the first volume of the archive, which usually has Z01 or 001 extension - subsequent volumes have progressively numbered file extensions (Z02, Z03 etc).
Read more about archive files extraction and how to extract selected files from archive

Create, open, extract encrypted ZIP archives


To create, open, or extract, an encrypted .zip file, enter the password in PeaZip clicking the padlock icon.
Supported algorithms for zip encryption, in Advanced tab, are:
  • AES256 (WinZip's Advanced Encryption standard)
  • ZipCrypto, for legacy support only
Encrypted items inside the archive are identified by * sign, and can be successfully decompressed only providing the correct encryption password.
