Zipeg is a tool that you can use to extract content from compressed files such as ZIP, RAR and 7Z.
The interface of the application is plain and simple. You can use the treeview or the "drag and drop" method to open archives.
In the list you can view the name, size, compressed size, date, time and comment of each file found in the archive.
In addition to extracting content found in an archive, you can preview files.
In the "Options" window you can enable case sensitive mode, to group folders on top of the list view, use Recycle Bin when overwriting files and show passwords.
Furthermore, you can specify what you want Zipeg to extract (selection, whole archive or always ask), as well as disable sounds and the option to automatically check for updates once a month.
On top of that, you can set file associations, specify the output destination (next to archive file, last used destination, My Documents or Desktop), as well as enable Zipeg to append the archive name to the destination, automatically open nested archives and detect filename encoding, as well as exit the program after extraction.
The program takes up a moderate-to-high amount of system resources, includes an online FAQ page and video tutorial, and quickly finishes an extraction task. No errors have popped up during our tests and Zipeg is very stable.
To conclude, Zipeg is an excellent tool for retrieving files and folders from archives and we highly recommend it to all users.
