editor's review




X-File Studio is a lightweight software application able to extract files from games, programs, installation packages, data files, as well as other types of items.

Straightforward design

The utility offers support for a multi-tabbed environment that allows you to set the target files, apply filters, view the search results, and run scripts. The tool offers only a few details about each file, such as name, path, size and description.

You are allowed to build up a list with the files that you want to process. In addition, you can add the content of an entire folder, remove items from the list or clear the entire workspace with a single click, manually select the items that you want to include in the scan task, and export the list to a file on your computer so you can import it in your future projects.


You can make X-File Studio look for specific file types, such as OGG, AVI, JPEG, MIDI, PNG, TIFF, BMP, GIF, WAV, RAR, ZIP, MOV, XML, TIFF, PDF, MP3, and ANI. In case the desired file type is not on the application’s list, you are given the freedom to set up a new one.

X-File Studio eats up a moderate amount of system resources during a scan process, so the overall performance of your computer is not affected. A log panel, displayed at the bottom of the main window, records details all actions and possible errors.

Search results and extraction settings

You can check out a list with all search results and open items via external programs. The selected files can be extracted to a user-defined location on your computer.

What’s more, X-File Studio lets you preview images and play media files directly in the tool’s interface, save the search results so you can use them in the future for quick extraction tasks, assign extensions, as well as make use of D-Script, a scripting language, for getting file information and extracting file headers.

Final verdict

All things considered, X-File Studio comes packed with a handy set of features for handling file extraction from various packages. The clean GUI makes it ideal to rookies and professionals alike. The only problem is that it hasn’t benefited from an update for a long time, so it may cause compatibility issues on newer operating systems like Windows 8.1.
