The Extractor 2.0.2

Using this straightforward application you can easily extract files from various archive types and automatically delete the original files
Creating archives can be the efficient way to save space. They are also useful when you want to send files as email attachments or to upload them to various servers. The Extractor is a nice tool that can help you unpack such files.

The program has a clean interface and a simple layout, so it should be easy to figure out by all users.

As mentioned, The Extractor does exactly what the name suggests – it unzips various archive formats. It comes with support for ZIP and RAR, as well as several other types.

The program lets you drag and drop the folders, ZIP and RAR files straight into the interface, or you can browse the disks for them. A target location for the output files may be defined as well. If one isn’t assigned, then the files are extracted to the input folder.

There are several Preferences features that you may fiddle with. For instance, when all the files have been processed, the program can be closed. This may be done regardless if there were any errors.

The app can be integrated into the Windows shell, which means you can send the archives to the queue straight from the context menu.

The bottom line is that The Extractor is a great tool that can come in handy very often. Less experienced individuals should find the app easy to handle, thanks to the intuitive interface and its overall simplicity. However, one of the major setbacks of this tool is that it can only extract archives and not create them as well.
