ZIPX is a compressed archive format developed by WinZip team, starting from WinZip 12.1 (released as trialware program on 13 September 2008) as alternative to classic PKZip's ZIP format.
WinZip's ZIPX standard is based on ZIP specifications with introduction of newer data compression algorithms - BZip, LZMA, PPMd and others (replacing classic Deflate, Deflate64, BZip2 algorithms) - providing high compression ratio, comparable with formats like RAR (native format for WinRar), WinAce's ACE, and in some cases 7-Zip's 7Z/XZ files.
On benchmark page you can compare how .zpix format compression / extraction fares, in terms of compression ration and computation speed, with mainstream formats such as .7z, .rar, and .zip, testing various software implementations (PeaZip, Winrar, WinZip).
PeaZip provides read only support for .zipx format: browse (list archive content, navigate and search inside archive), test file integrity, and extraction.
At current level of development, PeaZip cannot archive data in .zipx format, nor edit (add to / delete from) or update existing zipx container.
Please note that some compression algorithms used in ZIPX standard, as WawPack and proprietary WinZip's lossless jpeg compression models, are not yet supported by PeaZip (and 7-Zip / p7zip backend component).
"Convert" button allows to extract and re-compress existing .zipx archives in order to have them converted to any other file type supported for writing by PeaZip (as ZIP, ARC, 7Z...), or consolidated into a new single archive in the selected format - zipx conversion can work on single or multiple input files.
Browse and extract ZIPX files
How to extract ZIPX format with PeaZip, from 7z/p7zip backend on Microsoft Windows and Linux:
Using keyfile during archive creation improves security over simple password protection, as in this way decryption will require both user provided password ("what you know" element) and the keyfile ("what you have" factor).
