Multiple path extraction?

  • Hi,
    I have an archive that I would like to extract to a bunch of folders and doing it one at a time would take forever.
    So I was wondering if PowerArchiver/Command Line had the ability to extract one archive over multiple paths.


  • Multiple destination is not possible.
    Can you clarify what you are trying to achieve… extracting once and using copy/paste for the extracted files would appear to be the “best” method.

  • basically what i think they want is to be able to input several locations and extract or creat archives to thoses locations.

    bit like batch creation but with batch extraction

    …bit like batch creation but with batch extraction

    Yes, but how would this be generally useful?
    If extraction is always to the same destination, then create a batch file (.bat) to extract once and then copy.
    If the destination changes then a batch file is not useful, but extracting an archive multiple times is not efficient - again extract once and then copy manually.
    This just seems to be a “one-off” request and not a “generally useful” type of request.

    The quick answer is that that multiple extraction is not possible, but if a good reason exists then add it to the wishlist.
