"I originally downloaded BetterUnarchiver to see if it would operate quicker than the regular Mac unarchiver, but I discovered that it actually was much better anyway. It can handle many, many more file types than the built in archive utility, and operates so smoothly."
"This has long been my go-to utility for unarchiving files. It handles pretty much everything that you throw at it, and does it guickly and without issue. Definitely the best unarchiving tool on Mac OS X ever!"
"This is great because I can finally unzip files with Japanese titles and not have the Japanese turn into bogus characters. Most other unarchivers do not extract asian fonts correctly, this does it perfectly!"
For Mac users opening an archived file is normally as simple as double-clicking it. Except when you received files with extensions like RAR, Wim, TAR, etc. Cisdem BetterUnarchiver is a highly versatile Mac unarchiver that can unpack pretty much any archive you throw at it, be it RAR, Zip, 7-zip, ISO, Udf, Wim, TAR, etc. See the full list >>
Aims to be the only unarchiving program you will ever need, Cisdem BetterUnarchiver also lets you preview the files inside archives, such as text, images or music, and unzip only those files you really need. If you have another app installed that can open a file, Archives can also use that app to open contained files.
Additionally, the Mac Unarchiver gives you more options when extracting files from an archive, you can load archive files in batch and extract in one go. You can also select partial of the files in one archive to only extract the selected files which is very handy if you download a lot of archived files from the internet.
Running low on disk space? Reclaim it with Archiver by compressing files and folders. And for that extra bit of care, Cisdem BetterUnarchiver helps you safeguard your sensitive files by packing them in an encrypted, password-protected archive.
Cisdem BetterUnarchiver lets you create and extract archives simply by drag&drop. And list all tasks in queue which helps you create and extract a large number of archives in an ordered way. To save your time, BetterUnarchiver directly reads and writes archives, unlike most other archivers for Mac which are simply "front-ends". The end result is that BetterUnarchiver is often discernibly faster.
