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.

This is an excellent and free software.
But, don't download it from here, as the file here is not the full program.
I think it is stupid for this site not to provide the full installer which is only about 6 MB in size.
To get the full versions, 32 bit and the 64 bit versions, go here:
