Drag & Drop extraction

Opening an archive file in PeaZip's archive browser allows to select content to be extracted through full-featured extraction GUI, or simply dragged to the system which results in direct extraction without further interaction requests.

Fast Drag and Drop extraction from archives


PeaZip implements a custom fast drag and drop mechanism which allows to substantially improve, on certain circumstances, the speed from archives over the standard system's drag and drop implementation.

Windows drag and drop implementation (taken as reference) needs the selected content to be firstly decompressed to a temporary system's path, then moved to the intended destination directory, which needs twice the data being written if the intended destination is not on system's disk.
Instead, PeaZip's fast drag and drop implementation directly extracts the dragged content to the target path, so under any circumstance data gets written only once, and only to intended destination.

PeaZip's fast drag and drop extraction mechanism brings multiple advantages over standard drag and drop
  • speed: extraction is nearly twice as fast when the destination directory is not on system's disk, i.e. extracting data to different partitions, removable disks or usb keys, network paths...
  • stability: if large amount of data is involved, standard drag and drop will fail if system disk has not enough free space, while PeaZip's fast drag and drop extraction only requires sufficient free disk space on the intended destination
  • security: if encryption is involved, no orphaned plain-text data could ever be left on system's temporary path, as the decompressed and decrypted data extracted from the encrypted archive is written only on the intended destination path

PeaZip free archiver utility also supports dragging files from system to application for archiving and extraction (if drag and drop source is detected being an archive file i.e. ZIP, RAR, 7Z...), and for plain drag&drop file copy (performed with Robocopy command on recent Windows platforms).
Dragging files from filesystem to an open archive leads to archive update GUI for adding dropped files to the current archive, if format is write supported (i.e. add to existing zip, but not to rar which is a proprietary format supported only for decompression and test operations).


Archiving and extraction from context menu


Screenshots of PeaZip contextual menuconetxtual menu extraction and SendTo menu entries, for performing straightforward archive creation, extraction and test archives operations, with minimal or no interaction with main program's GUI, simply right clicking on target 7z, rar, tar, zip... archives.
Extract... and Add to archive entries brings to main extraction and compression screens respectively, allowing to fine tune the action with all supported options (compression format and level, provide encryption password, split to volumes, delete original files after operation, etc).
Extract here and Add to .7Z / Add to .ZIP simply starts immediate extraction or archive creation in the selected format, applying default options, without requiring further user's interaction.
On Microsoft Windows platform, system context menu entries (and file extensions associations) can be customized during installation or from Options > System integration to keep favourite compression, decompression, testing, encryption entries.
On Linux operating systems, FreeDesktop_integration folder contains sample scripts for integrating the application in system's menus.
