How to modify files in 7Z TAR WIM ZIP archives


The simplest way to edit existing files inside archives, for archive types supported through 7z / p7zip backend, is to open the archive and double click on desired file from PeaZip archive manager to open it as preview: file(s) will be extracted for viewing / editing to a temporary work path.
If the file preview is modified and saved, PeaZip will automatically ask to update the file in archive with the newer version.
From context menu > More it is possible to force update for arbitrary archive types, providing PeaZip is able to write data into the desired foramt, as explained below.

modify archives


Alternatives are dragging files into the archive in order to overwrite existing version of the file, or use Add button and selecting an existing archive as output destination for more options (Add, Update, Freshen updating only files already existing in archive, Synchronize) available from archive creation interface.

how to edit zip files


Please note that is (quite obviously) necessary to write data to the archive in order to modify its content, so the correct password must be provided if applicable, and only file in write-supported formats can be edited - in example 7Z, TAR, WIM, and ZIP formats supported through 7z/p7zip binary.
From Options > Settings > Archive manager tab it is possible to set "Try to edit non explicitly supported file types" option in order to try to modify data inside container files with extensions non commonly used for file archiving, but this option is off by default and not recommended for general usage because those formats may require editing / saving metadata fields which are unsupported and out of the scope of general-purpose archiving applications.
