PeaZip can extract most of archive formats both from Windows and Unix
worlds, ranging from mainstream 7Z, RAR, TAR and ZIP to experimental
ones like PAQ/LPAQ family, currently the most powerful compressor

and allows to export job definition as scripts to bridge the gap between
GUI and console applications, and let the user pick the best of the two
Release 4.7.3 is a small maintenance update over 4.7 line.
Before creation of archives it is displayed a quick approximate
calculation of potential compression, and the strength of password is
displayed as color band on the bottom of the password form.
Main extraction parameters (as extract in new folder and naming policy
to skip/overwrite existing files) are displayed in extraction form
and during drag and drop operation from archives.
On Windows deleted files are moved to Recycle Bin by default alongside
existing quick and secure deletion functions, and semaphore is used to
efficiently queue multiple instances.
A total of 171 file extensions are supported, now including Open
