The Unarchiver

By Dag Agren

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.

Description

The Unarchiver is a small and easy to use program that can unarchive many different kinds of archive files. It will open common formats such as Zip, RAR, 7-zip, Tar, Gzip and Bzip2. It will also open many older formats, such as StuffIt, DiskDoubler, LZH, ARJ and ARC. It will even open other kinds of files, like ISO and BIN disc images, some Windows .EXE installers. The list is actually much longer - see the program homepage for the full list.

The Unarchiver also tries to detect and correctly handle the filename encoding in the archives it opens, allowing you to open files from every part of the world without getting garbled filenames.

The Unarchiver aims to be the only unarchiving program you will ever need, and to stay out of your way.

However, if you want to browse the contents of archives, or if you want to support development of The Unarchiver, look for "The Archive Browser" on the Mac App Store, or go to http://archivebrowser.c3.cx/! It lets you browse and preview archive contents, and find out information about archives!

Also, if you need to open archives on your iPad or iPhone, look for "Archives" on the App Store, or go to http://archives.c3.cx/. It is based on The Unarchiver, and lets you easily handle Archives on iOS!

Customer Reviews

App Store version is limited

This is a great utility but the App Store version nags for permission every time you unarchive a file. You’re better served to use the (also free but not sandboxed) version on The Unarchiver web site.

Great tool for expanding all kinds of files!

The tool which comes with OS X often does the wrong thing, etc. The Unarchiver always works. Not much more to say: 8MB on your drive, well worth it!

A ‘must have’ utility

Needed something to decompress a .xz file and found this.

SUPER fast extractions and easier to use than I needed it to be.

Unarchiver is just one of those simple ‘must have’ tools.
