based archive extractor tool meant to keep the decompression process as
simple and streamlined as possible for novice users without prior
knwoledge about working with compressed file archives.
Free suite of file management utilities: compute file checksum and
hash, byte to byte compare, secure delete data and free space, hex
preview... Spin-off of PeaZip project, focused on minimal,
user-friendly GUI for file management functions.
PeaZip add-ons page, with
optional UNACE and UNRAR5 plugins, based on royalty-free but closed
source components and consequently requiring separate download.
- To use the application as ACE files opener and extractor it is
needed to install WinACE's UNACE plugin, otherwise the program will
lack the (proprietary) component to read .ace format.
- Please note RAR5
format opening / extraction is
supported out of the box: the plugin based on official RarLab's unrar
code is provided only as alternative .rar extraction engine, if
preferred by user over 7-Zip/p7zip's Open Source unrar implementation.
