More functions in multi-extract and other extracting functions…



  • PA is a great application, and I like it. However, it lacks some very important functionalities in extraction areas common users like me always need!

    1. Multi-extract should allow the option to extract to that particular archive’s dir instead of having only 2 options.

    2. Extraction should have the option to delete archive files upon successful extract. Lacking this function is really a big minus!

    Sorry, I don’t understand this - can you explain further?
    Using shell extension in Windows Explorer, I have 6 options - including “Extract to \filename…” which I believe is the one you mean.

    Not for me :p
    It is very rare when I want to delete after extraction.

    But I never object to more options - although I may object to the default action of a new option if it is different to the operation before the option was added.
    i.e. default should still be “Do Not Delete after Extraction”.



  • Yes, the only feature i would like to see added, would be much like winrar’s “extract here” option, but i would like to see it added to multi-extract.

    so when u extract multiple dirs, they dont go into another subdir inside the dir of the rars, but the contents of the rars go right into the dir the rars are in (i dont know if what i just typed made sense :eek: )

    other than this… i am very pleased with it, if this feature was added, i would purchase the application.

    Not really (to me). You are confusing me by switching between “dirs” and “rars” in your description.

    PowerArchiver does offer “Extract Here” as a shell option with multiple archives selected.

    If I have a directory “Testing” containing three archives:
    arc01, arc02 and arc03 (can be any supported format zip, rar, 7z, cab, tar.bz2 etc).
    I can select all three, right-click and select “Extract Here” from the shell options.
    The contents will be extracted to directory “Testing” 😕

    Obviously I’m missing something in your description.



  • I’m not talking about multiple archives. im talking about multiple directories

    the way it extracts multiple directories as it is, you can only have 2 options really, u can either extract everything from all the directories into 1 main directory, or u can have everything extracted into subdirectories of the folders theyre in.

    I want it to be able to extract the archives into the current folder they are in…

    like: say you have a folder called “MAIN FOLDER”

    then inside of that folder, you have 10 other folders, and each of those folders has rars in it… i want it to extract the contents of the rars right into each seperate folder, and not make another folder inside each folder for the contents of the rars.

    example: c:/main folder
    c:/main folder/folder1
    c:/main folder/folder 2

    i want it to extract the contents of the rars in folder 2, to folder 2, and not another folder inside of folder 2.

    don’t think i can explain it any better than that 🙂



  • Ah!!!
    You are talking about the ‘Multi Extract Tool’ in PowerArchiver which allows selection of multiple folders and extracts all archives found.

    Not explorer - shell options which works with multiple archives (in the same folder).

    So you want the equivalent of “Extract Here” where [Here] would mean each archive’s own folder?

    Sorry, as you may have guessed by now - I never use that tool 😉



  • yep, thats what im talkin about
