PEAZIP

Novice-friendly but with features for the expert and free archiving tools rarely cover all those bases, but PeaZip hits a home run.

PeaZip is a free, open source file and archive manager for 32 and 64 bit Windows and Linux. It is available either as installable and portable application (not needing installation)

Operating PeaZip is as easy as dragging files. Drop a ZIP file on the interface and PeaZip goes into decompression mode. Drop a regular file and it opens the archiving screen. Well-labeled buttons and simple functions make both processes quick and painless. Adding files and folders is also quickly accomplished using function buttons and traditional file browse tools.

Full support: 7Z, 7Z-sfx, ARC/WRC, BZ2/TBZ2, Custom (user defined), GZ/TGZ, PAQ/ZPAQ, PEA, QUAD/BALZ, split, TAR, UPX, ZIP.
