View Full Version : UNzip FIles - including .RAR on my Mac

01-04-2013, 05:59 AM
I have had a lot of success in my MAC operating systems with a free program called UNARCHIVER...

It works on many files at a time and does RAR... It even "unarchives" as much as it can if a file is incomplete!

I got it in the Apple APP store for free!!

Hope this helps someone, I saw another thread on unzipping files but nowhere did it say about us "Mac" people and it was a closed thread so I hope you don't mind I started this thread!!

Happy New Year from Texas!! Linda :roses:

Thanks so much for sharing that tip Linda. I'm a Mac user and I've always used Stuffit. I've never had problems with it. It zips and unstuffs files. Yours sounds like a good one too!

Current Mac OSX versions usually unzip and zip seamlessly through the OS (using built-in Archive Utility). Double-clicking should do the trick.

I also use StuffIt Deluxe, which is a for-pay program, but they have a simple app for decompressing all kinds of files (stuffed, zipped, RAR, etc), for free. Go to Aladdin Systems (http://www.stuffit.com/mac-expander.html) for the free Expander for Macintosh. For Windows user, go here (http://www.stuffit.com/win-expander.html).

The problem that I have encountered is that with my satellite internet - often on large files I get an error and it will not extract anything!! With this program I am usually able to get all or most of the files - plus it does the foreign files without asking like .rar!!

Just sharing my success, if you have reliable internet, you may never have problems with unstuffing!! :laugh:

what do people use who do not have a mac? I unzip one file at a time, which takes a looong time, so would love to find a program that will unzip many at once.

I discovered Unzipthemall (http://unzipthemall.en.softonic.com/http://) just recently. Its free and hasn't been updated for along time, but it works perfectly.
And its so good to just select the files you want unzipped and hit start :)
You can select which folder you want the files unzipped into as well.

I also use UnZip Them All.
