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

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
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).
