It integrates fully with windows explorer and is available in the context menu after right clicking on a file. It has a language selection of up to 23 languages.
PeaZip was developed by Giorgio Tani back in October 2006 and the latest version was released in February 2014. The software is compatible with all windows platform and Linux. It is approximately 4 mega bytes for windows and around 9 mega bytes for Linux.
All it takes for a software to be different from another is just one feature but in the case of PeaZip there is more than just one feature to make it stand out from the rest of the similar software. The first distinguishing feature is the simple interface that is easy to use. The second unique feature is the file management feature. Only a few archiving software have this feature. Finally is the vast amount of languages to choose from. Some software may not give the user an alternative language but PeaZip offers the user up to 23 different languages to choose from.
PeaZip is a type of free software that every computer user should have on his or her tool box since it does not occupy much space or exhaust your computer resources as it works.
