Mass Extract is a lightweight cross-platform utility designed to perform a single task: to help you decompress files with ease.
Since this is a portable program, it is important to mention that it doesn’t leave any traces in the Windows Registry. You can copy it on any USB flash drive or other devices, and take it with you whenever you need to check the contents of archived files with ease.
Mass Extract offers support for the following file types: 7Z, ACE, ZIP, RAR, LZMA, PAR, and others. You can drag and drop the archived files directly into the primary panel, or use the built-in browse function.
By default, the tool automatically decompresses the files into the same location as the archived items. It is possible to change the saving directory and file name for each archived file added to the list.
It comes packed with a preset list of archive types but you can add other file extensions. Additionally, you can make the program remove the successful extractions from the list at the end of the task.
Mass Extract keeps a log with details about the decompressing process and possible errors but you cannot export it to a file.
On the downside, it lacks support for many advanced features, as it doesn’t display the contents of the archived files directly in the main window, nor let you cut, copy, move or insert new items in the archived files.
All things considered, Mass Extract makes the decompression process seem nothing but a piece of cake. Although it cannot compete with other powerful tools from its category, it does what it says and remains light on the system resources.
