So far, so good
1. Well, Bandizip is basically well known in Republic of Korea. I expected nice performance on extracting achive contain files named in FREAKING Korean characters. Result? was no luck with giving all unreadable filenames. (Still, this experience does not matter indeed when in need)
2. Moreover, if you want to extract archive just next to itself, please use other unarchievers. It keeps target extraction directory to previous directory - I DO NOT WANT TO BLAME THIS EXPERIENCE because sometimes I also want it. Still, this case should be set as an option.
3. Conclusion: Not bad, still needs more work on. It worth its price, so far so good.
Works fine with filenames in foreign codepages
It works fine with foreign codepages on the filenames. For the person who said it refused to extract filenames with Korean characters try going into Bandizip X preferences (you can get to this by opening the app in Applications) and changing the encoding preference from Default to Korean. This usually seems to take care of it. There is no magic bullet here and I don’t think it would necessarily be possible to auto detect the correct encoding on filenames. I do this for Japanese encoded filenames.
Oh, my! It's a revelation!
After struggling to open .jar files and only sometimes succeeding, the time came to just own up and admit I had a problem. Don't wait like I did! Avoid the frustration, the excess coffee drinking, and nail biting. This app is well worth the cost, and has taken the guess work out of the portion of my day that would usually be dedicated to cracking open those .jar-s.
Thank you Bandizip for this wonderful app!
