PeaZip is a free file archiver utility. The application provides an unified, natively portable, cross-platform file manager and archive manager GUI for many Open Source technologies like 7-Zip, FreeArc, PAQ, UPX.

Features of PeaZip includes extract, create and convert multiple archives at once, edit existing archives, create self-extracting archives (sfx), split files, strong encryption with two factor authentication, encrypted password manager, secure deletion, find duplicate files, calculate hashes, export task definition as command line script.
PeaZip 7.2.0 improves archive creation, file spanning, dictionary, word, passes, and block size options are now remembered
PeaZip can now save current compression settings defined in the GUI to custom compression settings files, which can be also used to customize / replace default compression presets.
It is now possible to automatically close PeaZip after extraction or archiving operations.
Support for ZPAQ format was improved, optimizing compression and enabling advanced features supported by the format such as AES256 encryption, restore to absolute paths, and extract all versions of files contained in the archive.
Various fixes and improvements
Extended options to manually update edited files in archive (consistently with update dialog) in context menu > more submenu
it is now possible to update archive and discard temp edit files (as in auto update dialog Yes/Clear option), and to discard edits without update
EXTRACTION and ARCHIVING
Added option to automatically close PeaZip when task completes
Added options to save and load custom compression settings
Menu entries are available in main menu > Layout (in compression screen) and in compression presets context menus (in file browser and in compression screen)
Compression settings are saved by default to "Compression settings" folder in same path of PeaZip configuration
Password and keyfiles are not saved in custom compression settings, to manage passwords safely see instead main menu > Tools > Password manager
Volatile, context dependant variables can be saved alongside non-volatile ones, but will be lost in subsequent uses unless the custom setting is reloaded (in Options > Advanced volatile variables can be shown in italic font)
Presets for archive creation / conversion are now rewritten to use new compression setting mechanism, new presets supersedes both old presets and favourite formats menu entries
Presets are saved in PeaZip\res\presets folder, in PeaZip's program path; apart for being saved separately they are standard compression setting files and can be used as such
To customize an existing preset with a custom compression settings file, copy the desired custom compression settings file in presets folder, in place of one of the existing preset files
Optionally, editing the compression setting file is possible to change its displayed file name, the name that will be shown by PeaZip in presets menu
New presets: ZPAQ ultra, ZPAQ, ARC, Brotli, Zstandard
