The Review that Replaced the Review

PeaZip

Best:
Portable software that compresses and extracts files quickly and easily.

Worst:
Has a bit of a learning curve.
This shows Peazip's buttons and interface.
Here’s a picture of PeaZip’s interface. Nice, huh?

You know I use StumbleUpon, right? Anyway, I stumbled software today, and came across this. Remember how Zipeg didn’t compress files? This one does… it extracts and compresses files, and it’s only 32 KB. They say flexibility, compatibility, portability, and security.

The interface is really nice, too. You can add files and folders to your archives and extract them from the buttons up top. That’s all I need… quick and easy.

On top of that, almost everything related to archiving is customizable: where, what type, etc. It’s actually so much it’s confusing… if you don’t know what you’re doing, it does its job without any messing with. The color scheme can be changed however you like, too.

Searching your archives is also up front. Check for Yadda, it opens a list of all Yadda-related files, and you take care of the ones you choose.

It’s basically like Windows Explorer. You open C:, etc, and get deeper and deeper into the files. Then, when you want to extract or compress something, you tell it to add the file. It shows the group of files and gives your options at the top. You can even encrypt and password-protect things!

Really, the only bad point is the learning curve. As easy as it actually is, there’s a lot that can be done. At least there are Help Files.

I recommend trying it yourself… It does a lot more than Zipeg and most other software of its kind, I’m sure!

PeaZip works on Windows and Linux. Download it at PeaZip.org.
