Peazip offers to let you set a default destination (the documentation SAYS the default destination is the same folder), but will only allow you to TYPE IN a FULL path - it does NOT offer an option for the default path to be in the Original, or same, folder (even when you are using the context menu in that folder). And, if you try to check Original folder as the destination, Peazip insists on ALSO checking (in grey, so you cannot uncheck it) the box that causes EACH target file to create a separate zip file, instead of a combined, single file. For me, that removes the primary use I would make of the program.I'm certain this is not intentional because the online documentation (quoted below) from Peazip specifically says that is DOES perform the function I require:
"By default, the output path of the archive will be the SAME AS THAT OF THE SOURCE OBJECT(S)."

There are some bugs, bu if you need simple, basic, free zip utility that has nice interface it is possible the only option

Good software: lots of useful features, stable and nice GUI. I used portable and installable versions without experiencing any kind of troubles.

Last version seems more responsive than older ones I used, maybe it is faster because it is compiled for 64 bit Windows, feature set is complete, and it is free.

Gave it a 1 because it wants to install the candy garbage for windows.

Great program & does all you want, maybe bettered by WinRar but for free it's the best. (Beware of the AVG tool-bar on install)

Best file archiver!

Have used this for several years now. Best archiver in my opinion, since it uses components from many other open source projects, e.g. 7-zip and FreeArc. It handles all formats I need, plus the obsolete .RAR format.

There's a "plain" version available for download on sourceforge.net without the bundled crapware.

I like everthing about PeaZip except it's lack of unicode support. I still have to use 7 Zip frequently to deal with unicode filenames and paths.

Pros: Works well EXCEPT for the ONE very serious con that prevents me from using it, since it the one function I use the most:

Cons: Peazip 8.7.0 (Windows 11) will NOT create a new zip file IN THE SAME FOLDER where the target files live.

Bottom Line: Peazip offers to let you set a default destination (the documentation SAYS the default destination is the same folder), but will only allow you to TYPE IN a FULL path - it does NOT offer an option for the default path to be in the Original, or same, folder (even when you are using the context menu in that folder). And, if you try to check Original folder as the destination, Peazip insists on ALSO checking (in grey, so you cannot uncheck it) the box that causes EACH target file to create a separate zip file, instead of a combined, single file.

Yikes. It wants you to support them by installing a shopping toolbar during setup. I didn't care for the context menu options as you have to open the GUI before applying a job. Other than that it's pretty standard.

Speed greatly improved over previous release, and the new duplicate finder is very useful.
@asaenz I've tried secure delete with a couple of undelete software and all seems working fine, no data was recoverable after secure deletion (W7 64 bit).
