PeaExtractor v.1.2


PeaExtractor is a simple, free .rar / .zip file extractor for Windows and Linux, also available as portable software (no installation required to use the application, just unpack and run it), localized in 29 languages.
It is a spin-off of PeaZip archiver, focused solely on archive extraction for basic usage needs.

Open Source (LGPLv3), free for any private and professional use, the application handles 7Z, ACE, CAB, BZ2, ISO, GZ, PAQ, PEA, RAR, TAR, ZIP, ZIPX files and many more formats, 180+ file extensions (all mainstream archive types and variants) are supported for extraction.

PeaExtractor can replace programs like 7-Zip, PeaZip, WinZip, and WinRar for any unzip / unrar / untar task, but the project is solely targeted to provide a simple, intuitive, efficient GUI for decompressing archives rather than to provide a comprehensive, multi purpose, file and archival management utility like aforementioned applications - so no in-archive browsing and searching, and no file compression features are provided, to keep the UX focused on simplest way to extract files.
This alternative approach to decompression allows minimal user interaction (a single pass wizard to set options and confirm extraction) and requires little or no prior knowledge about working on compressed archives.

To extract a supported file with PeaExtractor, simply drag and drop the archive on the application, set options if needed (output directory, password for decryption of encrypted archives, overwrite or skip existing files, extract to new folder) and confirm extraction with OK button.
Alternatively, direct extraction (extract here and extract to new folder) is possible from system's context menu, without requiring further user's feedback.

Any kind of file can be passed to PeaExtractor, the software will try to work with unknown extensions using known archive structures; in that way PeaExtractor can disassemble Office files, exe, dll and other compound container file formats.

Free simple 7Z RAR TAR ZIP file extractor. PeaExtractor is a free, simple .rar / .zip file extractor, sin-off of PeaZip. Supports 7Z, ACE, CAB, BZ2, ISO, GZ, PAQ, PEA, RAR, TAR, ZIP, ZIPX files and many more archive types (180+ formats). Available for Windows, Linux, and as portable software.
