It allows to separate a file into parts, which can then be joined by the same application to generate the original file ( split / join ).
Peazip works as a format converter; For example to move from ZIP to RAR or vice versa. While this operation could be done manually in 2 steps, this tool simplifies and optimizes that process, in addition to doing it faster.
