How to convert existing ZIP, RAR TAR, 7Z archives


PeaZip allows to convert existing archives, belonging to any of the 150+ formats supported for extraction (CAB, ISO, RAR, ZIPX...), into any archive format supported for writing (7Z, WIM, TAR, ZIP and more popular file formats), on Microsoft Windows and Linux systems.

The software can work on multiple archives at the same time, either converting each input archive in a separate file in the chosen target format, or consolidating the multiple input archives in a new single archive of the desired format.
Non-archive files can be added as well to the input list, and will be compressed (or consolidated) in the chosen archive format.
In any case when using Conversion function input archives are firstly extracted and then recompressed in the new format, in order to get optimal compression ratio.

convert rar to zip

To convert existing archives, click on "Convert" button in applications tool bar, or check the "Convert existing archives" option in archive creation dialog; add files to conversion procedure as for normal archive creation, as explained in the FAQ and in program's documentation (F1).

Flag "Add each object to a separate archive" if you want to create a separate output archive file for each input object, ie.e. to perform a mass file conversion of input archives, or uncheck the option if you prefer to merge all the input data in a single archive, i.e. to consolidate a set of backup.

If input file is encrypted, user needs to provide correct password to perform archive conversion, otherwise archive data will not be readable and extraction stage will not complete.

If verbose mode is selected, after the extraction stage file conversion procedure asks for confirmation to proceed with compression, this allows to abort the process in case of problems (disk full, unknown password, corrupted archives etc) or to further modify the uncompressed data before the final compression stage.

After the compression stage, file conversion procedure asks for confirmation before deleting temporary files and folders created for conversion, however original archives are not deleted and not modified in any stage of the conversion to always let the user in full control about keeping or removing them.

If "verbose mode" option is unchecked (default) archive conversion can proceed unattended once OK button is clicked.
