Good file archiver

Comment by Jbud
about PeaZip Nov 2015

As long time user I can say this is one amongst best options for managing compressed files, both for the many compression options and for the excellent support to lots of archive formats for extraction (zip, rar, tar...).
Free of charge and clean from nagware bundle, I also like it comes with plenty file management utilities e.g. secure delete, find duplicates, verify file hash.

about PeaZip Jun 2011

As a casual user myself (at least when it comes to archive utilities :P ), I've only encountered the RAR, Zip, and 7z formats in everyday use. Those three are, by far, the most common formats around. You might have to extract an ISO every now and then, and perhaps even a tar.gz archive. All of which are supported by both WinRAR and PeaZip. Unless you're a developer or something, you're not going to be seeing anything else. And if you're a developer, you sure don't need to be following any of my advice.

For most people, the main difference between PeaZip and WinRAR is the fact that one is open-source, with a pretty GUI. And the other one is proprietary, and rather ugly.

Simple enough for my mom, yet based on 7zip and quite technical enough for my uses. Lets you activate file menu items for file splitting, file joining, file shredding, and an easy one to open a cmd prompt in any particular folder you're browsing. Plus its gorgeous looking.. seriously
